When most people decide to redecorate their dining area and replace all the dining room furniture with new ones, not all of them really think through the process, and they end up being frustrated over furniture that was not worth the buy, after all. The problem roots from the fact that they do not really spend time thinking and researching prior to buying the actual furniture. They do not realize that the whole decision actually needs a lot of input and insight from them to ensure that they actually bought something great.
Solid wood dining room furniture must be constructed using traditional jointing techniques. If you see metal or plastic connectors, screwed or nailed butt joints or even screwed pocket joints, then expect to pay a budget price. Check under the table and chairs and make sure that the joints are dovetailed or mortise and tenon. These are traditional woodworking joints, stronger than any butt joint and will last a great deal longer. Although you may believe the jointing methods used not to be important, cheap joints might also indicate that corners have been cut in other aspects of the furniture. If you have upholstered dining chairs rather than solid seats, maybe the fabric is cheap and will wear quicker, or the webbing holding the springs will soon burst - if there is webbing and not just a lump of foam! If on corner is cut, then others may be!
Maybe you prefer an oval or circular table, such as that offered by American Craftsman. This furniture company offers a beautiful quarter sawn oak 54 inch round dining table, showing the beautiful graining of the solid wood. It comes with six matching chairs offering a set ideal for any traditional dining room. Rectangular tables are easier to extend for large numbers of guests. Perhaps a fabulous Stickley polished mahogany dining table with leaves that will open to a total of 11 feet and seat ten or more people for these special occasions? There are many other famous furniture manufacturers available online from which you can choose the ideal solid wood dining room furniture.
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.
