The dining room is the centre of your home. It's where you'll entertain guest, share meals with the family and enjoy meals after a long day at work.

If you want your dining room to reflect all of your personalised needs for a space to eat and gather, you must choose the right dining furniture. Here are some tips to help select the perfect dining set.

Find The Perfect Dining Chairs

Dining room chairs should be carefully selected based on the number of people that will eat in your dining room and whether or not you need additional chairs on occasion. Popular dining chair options from Relax House include Ara Chair Solid Ash Frame Black Upholstered Padded Seat, Frankie - Modern Wire Dining Chair - Black, and Campo Scandinavian Timber Dining Chair - Natural American Ash - White. 

If you prefer the flexibility of being able to choose the number of chairs for the dining room table, you should probably select stackable dining chairs. For a more sophisticated dining room, modern chairs that feature wood frames are probably the best options. You should carefully measure the height of your dining room table to ensure that the chairs will fit comfortably under the table, as well.

Dining Table

The dining table is the most important piece of furniture for the dining room, aside from the dining chairs. As you search for the right dining table, you should consider the shape of the table that you prefer. For smaller dining rooms, a round table will likely work best and allow you to make the most of the space that you have. For a larger dining room, select a rectangular dining table. 

At Relax House, you'll find glass, wood and melamine tabletop options. If you have children or pets, a melamine tabletop is ideal for a dining room table, such as the Massa Table Rectangle 120x80cm Natural Solid Beechwood Legs / Black Melamine Top because it is easy to clean and it is less likely to be damaged. 

Mix and Match Dining Chairs and Dining Tables

Finding the right style for your dining room furniture does not mean that everything has to match. In fact, you can purchase more than one type of dining chair and a third design for the dining room table itself. Mixing and matching can make the dining room seem more eclectic, if you prefer contemporary casual style for the design of your dining room. 

Putting It All Together

As you decide which design styles will look best your home, it is important that you coordinate all of the pieces so that they work well together. Finding dining room furniture that offers both style and function is also important if you tend to entertain frequently in your dining room.

Additionally, you should select dining room furniture that will stand up to the wear and tear of everyday use. Select furniture that can be more easily clean and will not attract stains and wear, such as plastic or light woods. Wipe down spills immediately to protect your furniture using the right cleaning supplies for the material.

You can also complete the look of your dining room by selecting the right lighting to accompany your dining set. Pendant lamps can add sophisticated modern style to your dining room, creating an intimate setting that is perfect for winding down in the evening or entertaining guests.
