Dining Table Sets

As the primary furniture piece in your dining room, your dining table and chairs should properly fill the space, enhance comfort and reflect your personality. Surprisingly, there are a lot of decisions that go into making a dining table set purchase: Overall style, price tag, material type and size. If you consider all these elements, you should easily find dining tables and chairs to last you decades. Read the following guide to find the perfect dining table set for your home:

What size dining set should I purchase?


The overall size is often dictated by your personal preference, family size and overall usage. Are you planning on hosting frequent family events? A larger 7-piece round dining set or 9-piece set might fit you best — you might even want to consider an extendable dining table. Are you just looking for something to fit your family of four? In that case, a 5 piece dining set will more than suffice. Also keep in mind what fits in your space. A small breakfast nook only needs a small kitchen table set, while a formal dining room requires something more substantial.

Should I buy a wood, metal or glass dining table set?


There are many material options for dining tables and chairs. Wood is often the go-to choice, since it's readily available, durable and affordable. A metal tabletop or dining table frame is also a popular, trendy choice, while glass is usually seen as more elegant and formal. When making a final decision, consider your family's needs; if you have kids, avoid metal, since it often has sharp edges. And if you want to minimise clean-up time, avoid glass, since fingerprints and spills often require a full wipe down.

Should I buy metal, plastic, upholstered or wood seating?


As with table material, go with your family's comfort zone. Plastic is great for kids since it's softer and easier to clean if things get messy. Upholstered and slipcovered chairs add some much-needed colour, though they are less forgiving when it comes to spills. Wood is a common choice, though a wood chair without a seat cushion is often uncomfortable for long periods of time. In the end, style is important, but comfort should rise above all else.

Should I consider buying my dining table and chairs separately?


As there are lots of positives for both, it really comes down to you and your preferences. Purchasing a dining table set means that the table and chairs will match perfectly and everything will be in proportion, whereas purchasing your dining chairs and dining table separately gives you more artistic license, and the opportunity to shop around for pieces that meet your requirements and/or vision.

Regardless of whether you’re looking for extending dining table sets, modern dining table sets, round dining tables and chairs, or a dining table and 6 chairs, Houzz is bound to have the ideal dining table set for your home.
