One thing you want to avoid is buying dining room furniture that doesn`t call to your family and friends to "come, sit and enjoy". In many homes where the dining table lacks that attraction, a dining room quickly becomes more of a formal work station where objects are left, the table becomes cluttered and the only thing not happening in the room is the dining. Even formal dining furniture can attract dinner guests without making them feel uneasy or nervous about their manners. It`s all about the furniture you pick to fill the room.
Maple, Oak and walnut are the most popular woods for dining tables, and you should base your choice on the style of your room. If you are looking for solid wood dining furniture for an antique look, then walnut should be your choice. You won`t find solid walnut tables, but the base of the table will likely be solid oak with a beautifully varnished or glossy French-polished walnut veneer on top. In saying that, American black cherry is in fashion, and many Americans prefer this to the traditional hardwoods. If you prefer that type of antique look, Southwood offer dining tables with beautiful Queen Anne style legs and a highly polished top. You will likely pay a bit extra for a walnut finish, but the beautiful patterns of the grain are well worth it.
Above all the factors, the most important factor to consider is the size of the room. You need to ensure that the furniture you buy does not take up more space than expected. Take accurate measurement of your room and buy dining room furniture according to it. In case your room has a small space, go for a small dining table and a few chairs. On the other hand, if your room is large, you can buy a large dining table with multiple chairs. Not only this, you can also equip your room with cabinets, sideboards, extension tables etc. So choose your furniture set wisely and arrange it properly.
Make sure that in every major investment, you are backed up - in simple terms, make sure that you purchase dining room furniture with a warranty. Do not EVER buy something that has no guarantee of service repairs or replacement. As your customer, it is your right to return something if it doesn`t do what it is supposed to do. You don`t want to end up regretting buying something that is actually damaged goods and finding out that you cannot even take it to the shop to have it replaced, much less repaired. If you are getting a promotional offer for your dining room furniture, make sure you do the math so ensure that you aren`t really being cheated on your money. There are shops who try to make it appear as if you are saving money buy availing of a promotional offer, but there are hidden costs involved in some, and for others, well, the math simply doesn`t add up because sometimes, you end up paying more than you should had you just gone with the regularly-priced items.
