Before purchasing a new dining table, read our guide to understand how many chairs can fit around various sizes of rectangular, round, oval, and square dining tables.
Assembling the perfect collection of dining room furniture for your home takes time and effort, but with Amish craftsmanship and solid wood construction, Countryside Amish Furniture can help bring your vision to life. We offer casual and formal Amish dining room sets, with traditional, modern, mission and rustic styles.
- Which shape dining table is best?
The most common dining table shape is generally rectangular with two armed end chairs and an even number of side chairs along the long sides. Oval tables are popular for more formal settings, and are often the go-to choice for narrow rooms. Square and round tables work well in smaller square shaped rooms, and are also a great solution when you have a small guest list. If you are planning on hosting frequent family events, you might even want to consider an expanding dining table.
- How much space do you need for a dining room set?
Dining sets come in all sizes, so it’s important to select the proper seating capacity based upon the space available. The overall size is often dictated by your personal preference, family size and overall usage. A small breakfast nook only needs a small table and chairs, while a formal dining room requires something more substantial. We recommend at least 30-36 inches measured from the nearest obstruction, whether it be a wall, door, window or furniture.
- How much does a dining room set cost?
Oftentimes the furniture you decide to buy, if it's high-quality and well-made, will last through generations. If purchasing a complete set, the cost to furnish a dining room will range from around $7,000 to $15,000. This price range includes the essentials for a dining space seating 6-8 guests: a dining table, seating, and a storage/display piece such as a china cabinet or sideboard. The cost will vary based on the seating capacity, material used for construction, and personal design preferences.
- What is included in a dining room set?
A formal dining room set typically includes a table with chairs or benches in the center of the room. Other furniture pieces, such as consoles, china cabinets, and buffets make storing china and serving food easier. More informal dining sets, often known as dinettes or breakfast nooks, consist of smaller tables and fewer chairs; this set is typically placed within the confines of a kitchen or living space for meals.
Enjoying a meal with your friends, family, or guests is easier when you have the right dining room furniture set. Comfortable chairs and a durable dining table make it easy to entertain whenever you wish. The best solid hardwood dining collections combine both function and style so that you can sit comfortably and enjoy the company of your loved ones. Countryside Amish Furniture’s dining room suites, such as an oak dining room set, come in many different shapes, sizes, and styles so that you can find the perfect one for your home.
