The Right Dining Setting for your Family

June 26, 2013

Finding the right dining room furniture for your family’s needs is similar to purchasing a new mattress for the bedroom or lounge suite for the living area – it will be used daily and comfortability is paramount.  The dining room table is the place where your family can gather over a meal and discuss the day, host a dinner party with friends, read the newspaper and even, double as a desk for the kids’ homework or your own home office.  These are just a few of the reasons why it’s so important to really think about the practicality of your new dining setting.

Size may seem obvious as settings may range from 5 pieces to 9 pieces, but if your family is growing, consider going up a size or buying some extra chairs that you can store and use later.  Some ranges offer a square or a rectangle dining room table.  Take the Jamaica 9pce Dining Setting… it is available in a 2100mm x 1050mm rectangle shape or a 1500mm x 1500mm square shape.  Different shaped tables are appealing as YOU can decide which will fit in your dining area, kitchen or open living area as opposed to having to just accept one shape and style.  Plus, there are round tables, which are ideal for kitchens or smaller spaces and extension dining settings (that come in handy for parties and extended family gatherings)!

To accompany your dining room table, you can select from a range of chairs including fully upholstered, padded or timber.  The range of dining settings at Thriftway Furniture Megastore Geelong is diverse and there is everything from contemporary to luxuriously formal to rustic-country.  Many people have been long-time devotees to pine dining settings, but it’s important to note that hardwood has now become more affordable and durable in comparison to pine.  These are just a few of the things to think about when finding the right dining table for your family.  We also have a fantastic range of lounge suites and living room furniture to complement your new dining area.
