Solid wood dining room furniture is the best you can get due to its strength, rigidity and hard-wearing properties. However, there are many different woods than can be used, and many different designs, so here is some advice on choosing the furniture for your dining room that best suits your needs, with specific reference to your tables and chairs. You must first decide on how many you want to seat at your table, bearing in mind that some tables can be extended to seat more for special occasions. This question might be answered by the size of your dining room, or perhaps yours is large enough for any size of dining table. Most choose from six to eight: two to four chairs each side and one at each end. However, you can choose larger if you prefer.
Most suppliers of solid wood dining room furniture offer you the chairs to match, although there is no reason why you cannot purchase your table from one maker and your dining room chairs from another. If you get the wood the same, then the maker is immaterial, and it is not uncommon for people to find a table with which they instantly fall in love, but don`t like the chairs that come with it. In such cases, keep looking until you find chairs that you are happy with: it`s worth taking your time when you are spending money on furniture for your dining room. You will live with it for a long time.
Another good choice for dining room furniture is fabric-covered seats. They`re a great addition to any dining room ensemble, because upholstered seating will allows for even more customization; you can refresh the look or the colour whenever you like through re-upholstery allowing a truly personal design. You aren`t just limited to fabrics for upholstered dining furniture either. For an extra touch of class, dark leather upholstery is a great choice for your dining room furniture.
To bring a true touch of timeless style to your dining room, you can`t really go wrong when you choose wooden furniture, as wooden tables (and chairs) have a classical look that will never go out of style. For a truly elegant look, darker woods (or wood stains like mahogany and ebony) are often the choice for many, a combination of subtle strength and solidity coupled with beauty. When you are looking to buy wooden dining room furniture, it is always worth paying attention to the finish - make sure it has been treated well to last, but not overly varnished, look for a natural shine to polished wood. Remember you need to look after and maintain a wooden table, but it is worth it in the long run!
