Choosing The Perfect Dining Room Set

Dining Room Sets

The dining room is one of the most important rooms of the home. Not only is it a place where most of your dining takes place, but it’s also a room where great conversation takes place. When you think about it, the dining room is the space where many of your most cherished home memories will take place. Thus, when choosing a new dining room set, you need to take the process very seriously.

But where do you start? That’s where we come in. Below are a few tips to aid you on your quest to picking the ideal dining room set for the home. Follow our advice, and you will cherish your new dining room set for many years to come.

The table

The centrepiece of your entire dining room, you need to take a few things into consideration when choosing your table: most notably how many people will be using the table regularly. Ensure the table fits snuggly into your dining room area as well, all the while allowing enough room for family members/guests to find their seats (more on seats in a moment) and to sit food appropriately. Measure the space where you want your dining room table to sit, and we can find you a proper table that will fit perfectly into your desired space.

Determine if your table will be used for other purposes besides meals. For example, if your table is practically an extension of your family room or kitchen, it’s safe to say that it will also be used for other tasks such as homework, playing games, prepping food, etc. Thus, you will want a dining room table that has a more casual style and a surface that cannot be easily damaged.

Dining room seats 

A dining room table without the proper seating is like a ship without a sail: it may look beautiful, but if you can’t sit at the table properly, the entire table/seating set is worthless. Choose dining room seating that compliments the style of your dining room table and blends properly. You also need to consider how firm you want your dining room chairs to be. Do you prefer soft, upholstered seating that is comfortable but is susceptible to stains, or firm, stain-free wooden chairs? It’s a choice only you can decide for yourself.

China cabinet

Choosing a China cabinet depends solely on your preferred style. Do you want a classic look? Consider purchasing a China cabinet made out of blonde wood. Prefer a more romantic look? You may want a China cabinet with a dark, espresso finish.

Unsure about what you will be storing in the cabinet? Play it safe and chose a cabinet that sports adjustable shelves. This will ensure that no matter what you want to store, you will have the flexibility to store it in the proper manner.

Just like your dining table, you must also measure the space you want to place the China cabinet. Once again, measure your space and bring them to us so we can find a perfect China cabinet for your home.

This also applies to your buffet and sideboards selections as well.


Bring your space together by choosing the ideal chandelier for the room. The chandelier should blend in perfectly with your home’s architectural style. For example, if your home has a modern look, consider choosing a chandelier that has a simple, clean, and contemporary look.

Ensure that you have about 30-inches between your dining room table and the bottom of your chandelier’s fixture, and that you can place it above the middle of the dining room table. Moreover, choose a chandelier that matches the style of your dining room table. For instance, if your table is a brown, oval shape in a architecturally traditional home, consider purchasing a round chandelier with a dark, wood finish.

Finally, choose a chandelier that offers the best amount of light possible. You don’t want your dining room area to be too light or too dark, so ensure that your chandelier is able to fill the space with the proper amount of light. If you want to be certain that your chandelier provides your guests with the perfect amount of light, consider installing a dimmer switch into your dining room area.
