Picking out the best dining room furniture can be tricky. Here are some tips to help you make the right choice!

The best way to pick the best dining room furniture is to start with the basics. This includes picking out a table and dining chairs that fit the style you want, and that can accommodate the number of people you want to seat,

The next step would be figuring out what type of chair or seating arrangement is best for your family’s needs. This will depend on how often you use your dining room and how many people are in your family. For instance, if you have kids who like to climb on chairs or run around the table while they eat, then it might be a good idea to invest in padded chairs with armrests.

If you don’t plan to use the furniture too often, then consider occasional dining furniture.

Dining Room Sets

There are various dining room sets available, ranging from the traditional rectangular oak tables that seat 4-6 people to drop leaf tables and additional furniture such as console tables.

Here are some questions to ask yourself (or your partner) when deciding:

Style: Do you want a table and dining chairs that look modern or traditional?

If you are looking for a more modern look then our range of drop leaf tables have a more curved and stylish appearance.

Size: What size table will fit in your space?

Make sure to measure up what space you have before you start looking at different dining tables. If you have any questions about measurements, including the dimension of our tables, make sure to chat with one of our staff members in our furniture store.

If you have ample space then consider console tables and sideboards which can beautifully complement your new dining table and chairs.

Colour: What colours work best with your current decor?

We have a range of dining room sets to suit you, but it’s important that the style and colour of your set match their surroundings!

Budget: How much can you afford to spend on new furniture?

Dining tables are an investment and your next purchase should last you many happy years. Having said that, quality materials such as oak are more expensive, so this might need to be factored in when deciding on your budget.

Frequency of use: Do you need every day dining room tables or 'for best'

If you plan to use your furniture regularly then it’s important that you are comfortable, and that the table and dining chairs are built to last. You might, however, be looking for occasional dining furniture which is only used for special occasions or on certain days of the week.
