When we say physical appearance, we mean the shades and hues it comes in, as well as the hardwood type. There are plenty to choose from - from oak, to maple, to walnut, you have plenty of options. There are also dining room sets that you can choose to make the whole process easier. Arts and Crafts dining room sets are one of them, and these help recreate a period of time in history - specifically the Renaissance period. Know your preferences, and also take pictures of your current dining room. This is just so that when go into the stores, you have a basis or a foundation for comparing and contrasting your options.
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.
You might want a small dining table for regular use, but one that can be extended for special occasions such as dinner parties or seasonal celebrations. You generally have two options: tables with leaves attached, that can be pulled up when needed, or those with separate leaves that can be added as required. Some older tables come with two, three or even four extra leaves that can be added to extend the length of the table, while modern dining tables can be fitted with clever mechanisms that extend the table at will.
Once reserved for Sunday dinners, dining room tables can bring the family together every day. Dining areas come in all shapes and sizes. From the elegant and formal to the casual and comforting, a dining area should bring people together to share in not just a meal, but in the timeless conversation and camaraderie that gets skipped in our all too hectic lives.
