Dining Tables & Chair Sets

Always buy dining tables and chairs at the same time

If you’re thinking about buying a dining table, there are several things to consider before you part with your money. It’s always best to buy dining tables and chairs together, for example, and you need to be very sure about how you’re going to use your table and where it’s going to go, so that you buy the most appropriate dining table and chair set for your needs.

Rules for Buying Dining Tables and Chairs

Of course, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to buying dining room furniture, but there are several things you should think about before you buy:

Dining room table and chairs sets

Your dining room table isn’t a stand-alone piece of furniture. In order for it to perform its most essential function, you need dining chairs. Buying a dining table and chair set is crucial if you are to keep the same style of furniture, have the same quality of furniture and get the practical things right. For example, you don’t want to buy chairs that are too low for people to sit at your table comfortably, or that don’t fit properly when pushed in. You want to ensure that the wood is the same colour and that the style matches. The wisest choice is to buy your dining table and chairs together as a dining set.

Extending dining tables

Do you want a table that extends so you can entertain more visitors and guests? Extending tables come in all shapes and sizes, and are very useful if you only occasionally have more than your general household members dining together. If you’re considering an extending table, make sure you find one that has a good mechanism so that you can extend the table easily and without scratching or damaging the wood. All of Oak Furniture Land’s extending tables are hand adjusted to ensure this high quality. You also need to ensure that you have the space in your dining area to extend the table properly so that you can get a real benefit from it. Extending dining tables need to be very robust so the best choice is high quality solid hardwood furniture, such as oak or mango.

Materials for Dining Tables and Chairs

In today’s furniture market, you can get dining tables and chairs made from a wide range of materials. The best of these by far is solid hardwood. Hardwood furniture, whether for your dining room or any other room in your home is durable, long-lasting and an excellent investment. If you’re looking for beauty and quality, hardwood dining tables and dining chairs with hardwood frames are your best option. High quality leather or seagrass upholstery is a nice touch for added comfort.

Use of your dining table and chair set

For many people, the dining room table doubles as a homework space, a computer desk, a coffee table and more. If your dining room table is going to be multi-purpose, make sure you take that into consideration when you’re buying. Our sales team are always happy to help should you have any questions about which dining tables are best suited to your circumstances.
