This article looks at beautiful dining sets and discusses some of the main styles and materials that you might wish to consider when picking your home decor. It also focuses on the enduring beauty of oak.
Modern Dining Sets
Today’s dining sets offer something for everyone, from style through to functionality and budget. For example, many people today live in apartments and find that space is an issue. To tackle this, there are now modular dining sets for just two or four people, with chairs that tuck neatly under the table to leave no extra space and with entire sets taking up just a small corner of an open plan living space. To further give the illusion of space and light, these dining sets tend to have narrow legs and thinner table constructions, allowing the light to pass underneath and around them and also making the units easier to carry to upper floors.
Other popular dining set options include expanding dining suites with an oak dining chair and table. These allow the set to grow in size for larger dining occasions and for the table to fold out to accommodate extra guests. These tend to be very popular with larger family homes and with those who do a lot of entertaining.
Materials Of Choice
Classic materials include oak dining chair and table sets which are sturdy, long-lasting and offer all the natural beauty of this hard-wearing wood. Beech dining sets are very popular with those who like lighter shades and pine is the classic choice for country styling. Minimalists will often go for white gloss and stainless steel accents, whilst plastic sets are perfect for occasional and holiday use. The beauty of oak and other woods is they will last the test of time and an investment in a high quality dining set made from wood will often see it being passed down to another generation!

Looking After A Wooden Dining Set
If you choose to buy a pine, beech, composite or oak dining chair and table set, make sure you invest in its upkeep and care. The wood will often look more beautiful over time with regular waxing and oiling. You can gently sand away any stains, but remember to put hot drinks on coasters to avoid waxy stains from occurring. Try naturally scented waxes to provide a beautiful fragrance to the wood and shine the surface with a soft cloth, without adding too much of the wax or oil, which will otherwise attract dust. The protective surface will also repel water and make the surface water resistant, which is ideal for dining.
Wooden dining sets can often be surprisingly affordable too. If you buy a flat pack set, it will be on the cheaper side of your budget and be useful if you live on an upper floor and need to construct the set within the space. There are also superb sets made by master craftsmen using traditional joinery techniques and these are best moved by professional removals staff, as they tend to be particularly heavy and robust! Regardless of your preference, take your time reviewing the different styles and options and speak to the sales people for advice if necessary.
