Of all the items of furniture you need, one of the biggest investments you will make is in a dining set. The dining room chairs and table will be with you for many years to come. You will sit around it countless times, enjoying meals with family and friends.

It may be the space that your children complete their homework, the place you sit and enjoy company of friends and the place you retreat to when you need a flat surface to carry out anything and everything from sewing to reading, writing to chopping veg.

They are versatile, they are stylish and they are practical but getting the right dining set that will last for years may be tougher than you think when you see the wide range of dining room furniture on offer.

Space and dimensions

If you don’t have a large amount of dining space, you will be looking for a dining set that offers you the same level of practicality and functionality, but without the extra-large dimensions.

The great news is that there are several space-saving dining sets on offer. Take a look at the foldaway dining sets or the stowaway dining sets, perfect for when space is limited.

Shape: round, oval, rectangular and square

It’s important to consider the shape of the table. Long, rectangular tables are great for larger families and dinner parties, but many people feel more connected with their family and friends around a round table.

Square tables are great for fitting into corners and oval tables offer a little more space in a smaller room.

Dining chairs: style, colour and material

A big consideration will be the chairs included in dining sets. There are all kinds of styles available and here are some factors you may want to consider:

  • Style of the chair – the current fashion is for high backed chairs. They look almost stately and regal but in a smaller room, they can swamp the space. If you are limited on space, lower backed chairs will make the room feel more open and airy.
  • Upholstery – there is no doubt that an upholstered dining chair with a padded seat is far more comfortable. However, choose the fabric carefully as some lighter fabrics may not withstand the rigors of a sticky fingers and pets very well. Leather or vinyl covering works great for wiping away spills. If you do opt for fabric, consider treating it with a stain-repellent coating.
  • Colour – don’t assume that the only way for a dining set to last years in your home is for it to be neutral in colour or tone. Many people choose the dining set that appeals to them and then change the colour of the décor over the years that complement or contrast against the dining set.

There are other factors too – plastic seating, for example, is incredibly practical in a family home, as well as injecting a modern-look into a space.

And don’t forget, there are sideboards and bookcases that also perfectly complement your fabulous new dining set…so why not take a look at the other ranges we have on offer!
