by Coley Home coleyhome

One of the main spaces of the home is the dining room Furniture; it is one of the meeting areas and for it to be perfect, it must have the right furniture. There is a whole world of furniture that can be used in this space, but to help you choose the right ones we share some ideas.


Style or Functionality


The first question that will have to be deciphered about dining room furniture is the priority over style or practicality. Is it worth more that the furniture looks good or meets the lifestyle needs of the family?


The furniture chosen for the dining room will largely depend on the general style of the property , whether it is a house or an apartment, and whether a separate or integrated dining room is preferred as part of the living room furniture

 Type of dining room


As mentioned in the previous point, another important aspect to consider so that the dining room furniture is correct is the type of dining room: integrated or separate . For a home with a separate dining room, the options are hardwood furniture and upholstery in noble fabrics or leather for a classic decoration, or glass and steel for a modern and chic home.


One idea may be to incorporate genuine antiques , they work very well with both decorating styles. Furniture is, in addition to furniture, an investment for the future.


On the other hand, an integrated dining room is ideal for a busy young family, with an open-plan living room and a dedicated dining space . The dining room table should support three or even four meals a day, in addition to offering a surface that sometimes becomes a workspace, family games or office.


Wood is a good alternative in terms of material for this dining room model, it is best to opt for a light color. Light country-style furniture is inexpensive and cheerful, as well as elegant and nearly indestructible.




Although in the previous point we suggest wood as the ideal material for dining room furniture, there are also other materials that are a good option. Chrome or a metal-framed table and a ceramic top or vinyl-upholstered chairs are an alternative. Glass tables are suitable for a couple without children.


Also stone materials such as marble, quartz and granite are highly recommended. These types of materials are shock resistant, have great durability as well as beauty and versatility.


 Important details


It is also important to take into account some details that will be very helpful in deciding on the final furniture for this space.




To choose chairs the legs are important, the types of legs that we recommend are those of metal, wood or plastic . One idea may be to lay down a carpet to protect the floors.




Dining sets come in a variety of heights, your best bet is to go for something in between that provides comfort for everyone, even your guests. Some tables have an average height of 80 cm, although there are higher or lower.


If the table has six chairs, the measurement should be around 150 cm on the longest side and 80 cm on the narrowest side. Another recommendation is that the dining room have an approximate space of 60 cm between the chairs .




The rectangular and oval tables are recommended for large families , as they have the capacity to receive 6 to 12 people and add chairs to the sides, if necessary. In addition, they provide more space, are very comfortable and spacious.


On the contrary, round tables allow people to be closer. The oval ones have rounded edges, this gives them a more elegant look.


Square tables are perfect for a small or confined space , as well as a dining set with chairs without armrests. Rectangular tables can be accompanied by high-backed chairs and armrests.


Now you know what to look for to make sure that the dining room furniture is the perfect one for your home, so that the whole family can spend many pleasant moments in company. At Coley home furniture we have a wide variety of furniture for that home you want, check our catalog and contact us.
