Furniture Ideas For Dining Room

Posted by Kero at Tuesday, September 28, 2010
All matters pertaining to our move to the capital is being finalized. The office branch is currently being renovated and we now have new community in sight to look for a place to stay. For now, Hubby asked me to check on our furnitures - which is worth it to bring with us to our new place and which goes away.

I immediately thought of two things: we need bigger closet ward robe and a new set of dining table. Hubby said that our new place most probably includes a built-in-wardrobe since those are the new designs of apartments in that area. That leaves me then to look around for a proper new dining set. You see, our dining table is small and folds up. We bought it with a sole idea that after eating, we fold to have more space. Now that my son is growing up and happily joins dinner, I think we need a bigger one and something that looks decent.

As I read on pointers how to choose a new dining furniture, I gather that it should be: convenient, affordable, durable, stylish, with quality, and should not make the room over-crowded. I decided then to look for an oval shape wooden table. One without corner is definitely safer when you have a kid running around the house. Plus, I read on Feng-shui that oval-shaped dining table induces more gentle energy. We definitely need such thing while staying in the super-city.

Here's what I have in mind. I saw the set while browsing through a furniture catalogue. I love chairs with high back and I like the country house feel that goes with the set.

But Hubby also thinks this monochromatic wood and leather set is elegant and comfortable. Hmmnn, he always likes the seat soft and cushioned so maybe this will be more like it.

Once we decide which design, I shall move on to look for table cloth. A Feng-shui tip also reveals that it is a great way to encourage closeness among diners rather than individual place mats.

The selection of an Oval shape furniture is a great idea as it provides more safety and further it looks more comfortable and will take less space then a square one. Further cushioned furniture is a great idea as it will increase the look of the dinning room.

Decide on the color of the Dining table according to the color of the walls in your new home, Also keep in mind the comfort of the chair which comes with the dining table.

Just make sure the dining furniture doesn't clash withe the rest of the furniture in that room.
