Style Features. Styles vary depending on the manufacturer. For example you might choose a trestle table when creating a country look in your home. These dining room sets are often constructed out of reclaimed wood to give them a rustic and primitive appearance. Benches may line this type of furniture for informal seating. More traditional options include wood with a rich and glossy finish and ornate carvings on the legs. For dining room sets with modern appeal consider metals and glass for both legs and tops.
One thing you might want to do is be sure to decide on a room design that makes the most out of small spaces. One principle feature to avoid with small dining rooms is clutter due to the fact that it tends to make the room seem a great deal smaller.
Traditionally dining room sets were composed of a large rectangular table surrounded by chairs. The two chairs at either head had arms while the chairs along the sides were armless. The furniture is almost always made of wood and prior to the 19th century unique to each home. While custom pieces are still available today they can be prohibitively expensive. Here is a look at some of the more common styles of tables and chairs that are available today.
