Hooker Furniture Dining Room Set
For many, the dining room is the heart of the home where people gather for casual meals every day and invite family and friends for holidays, celebrations and dinner parties. Whether you have a large formal dining room that accommodates a long dining room table, a cozy nook off the kitchen or a designated area in the great room, you can find comfortable dining room furniture to serve family members and welcome guests. Discount dining room furniture is available online and at dining room furniture stores in NJ.
Choose the Right Dining Room Table
Dining room tables come in a familiar oblong and rectangular shape, perfect for a spacious or narrow room. You can also use a traditional rectangular dining room table in a great room, if it does not interfere with the flow of traffic. A round table will work nicely in a smaller space or in a square room. Think of a sunny breakfast nook off the kitchen or a small area tucked away in a great room.
You can expand your seating space with a table that has either removable or self-storing leaves. Some roundtables come with a drop leaf that can be extended when necessary to accommodate guests. Before you make your selection, be sure that you have enough room to give each person at least two feet of tabletop space. You can find discount dining room furniture at dining room furniture stores in NJ.
Get Comfortable Chairs
If you buy a dining room set, the chairs will coordinate with the table. If you like a more eclectic look, make sure to choose chairs that have a similar style to your table. Before you make your purchase, make sure that the chair seats are at least 12 inches below the top of the table edge so that your guests will have enough legroom.
Think about getting chairs with armrests at the long end of the table that have upholstered backs and seats. All other chairs are generally armless, but they will probably have the same upholstered backs and seats.
Add Occasional Pieces
Once you have the basic dining room furniture, it is time to think about matching occasional pieces that add convenience and style to your dining room. If you have the space, get a buffet and/or china cabinet to store dishes, linens, serving pieces and tableware. A buffet provides a flat surface that can be used as a holding area, or to place dishes for guests to help themselves.
The Finishing Touch
Now that you have the right furniture to make your dining room functional and inviting, it is time to add some pizzazz to the room. Bring some color or pattern into your dining room with a vibrant area rug that will harmonize with the color palette in the rest of your home. Make sure the rug extends two feet or more beyond the sides of the table to accommodate the chairs. For most tables, an 8′
area rug is a good fit. Add artwork, mirrors and lighting for drama.
