We are so excited about the launch of our new blog! We’ve been thinking about ways to help our Dinette.com customers wade through all of those overwhelming decisions you face when choosing dining room furniture. The Style File is the answer. Through a host of topics (selected by you!), our designer will guide you through choosing your furniture style, space-saving tips, how to care for your furniture, and sure-fire ways to spot top-quality pieces.
Let’s start with the bare-bones basics: figuring out the type of dining room furniture that suits YOUR needs. Well, we say needs, but sometimes furniture can be a want! ;-)
Ask yourself a few questions before you start to browse. No, really, we mean before—no cheating and looking until you’ve figured out a few musts!
Where will the table go? What’s the general style of the room?
How big is the space you are putting your dinette set in? This will factor in when figuring out the size and shape. You’ll need to allow for a minimum of five feet from the edge of the table to the wall.
How long do you plan to keep the table? Is this a pass-on-as-an-heirloom purchase or one you need just for a few years?
How will you use the table? Do you need a cozy table for two, a family table for four, or an entertainment-friendly one that will seat twelve? (Or one that meets multiple needs—this is where leafs come in super handy!)
How much maintenance are you willing to do? This is important to think about when considering your table surface.
It’s early days for us, and we want to make sure we’re talking about the topics that are most relevant to you, so send us your feedback! Leave any questions, comments, or ideas for future blog posts in the comments below.
