Frequently Asked Questions about Dining Room Furniture
Q1. What Questions Do You Need to Answer When Shopping for Dining Room Furniture
Buying good dining furniture in Toronto is an investment – often a lifetime investment. Some of your fondest memories will be made in your dining room during those hearty family meals, so make sure your dining room furniture sets the right mood. To get an idea of what to look for, it helps to answer the following key questions:
How often will the dinner table be used?
For everyday use, go for one that is strong, and select chairs that can stand up to daily use. A more delicate and detailed table is perfect for a table that will only be used for entertaining and formal events.
How many people do you wish to accommodate at the table?
Select a table that can accommodate the typical number of guests you expect or one that allows you to insert additional sections to make it longer. Keep in mind if you plan to expand your table like this, you will need extra chairs.
What size table and chairs comfortably fit in your room?
There is nothing wrong with having a large table. However, make sure you leave at least 36 inches around the table to fit standard dining room chairs or more for bigger chairs, and room for people to pass behind if needed.
What is the style of your dining area?
Your dining room furniture needs to harmonize with the style of the room – not necessarily match. You want the furniture to look like it belongs.
What type of chairs do you wish to use around the table?
You do not need to match your table and chairs perfectly. The only real guide is whatever you’re comfortable with and the look or feel you want to achieve.
Q2. How Do You Arrange Furniture in A Dining Room?
It depends. Ideally, you want to comfortably accommodate as many people as needed. In this case, you want to duplicate the shape of the room with the shape of the table. For example, a rectangular table in a dining room with the same proportions ensures you make the best of the available space. Also, remember to include storage such as bookcases or cabinets along the perimeter.
Q3. How Do I Keep My Dining Room from Feeling Like A Conference Room?
An evening dinner with family or friends should never feel like a business conference. To ensure your dining room feels more like a home, include additional decorations such as wine cabinets, sideboards, bookcases, or hutches.
Q4. Do Dining Chairs Need to Match the Table?
Matching in some sense is good when it comes to furniture. However, it is also great to create some contrast. Otherwise, you risk every piece of furniture looking the same, which can be boring to the eye. Try having something common between different furniture pieces, such as the shape, colour, wood used, or texture.
Q5. How Much Clearance Do You Need Between the Table and the Chair?
A standard dining chair is 18 inches tall, while a standard dining table is 30 inches. This leaves a 12-inch gap between the top of the table and the top of the chair. Keep in mind this distance changes depending on the table's thickness and whether it has an apron. When you put the table and chairs together, the distance from the bottom of the table to the top of the chair seat should be between 8 and 10 inches. This is sufficient clearance for the guests to sit comfortably and allow some movement.
