The Perfect Solid Oak Dining Table Set

Your dining room can serve many purposes, from a daily place to enjoy a family meal to an area to entertain guests at holidays or special occasions. It follows that your dining room table should be as versatile as the room it’s placed in.

When searching for a dining room table for your home you’ll want to consider a few questions:

  • how often will you use your dining room?
  • what size is the space you have to fill?
  • what other furniture is already in your dining area?

Once you’ve answered these questions, it’s time to find your new favorite dining table!

Utilizing Your Space

When searching for the perfect dining table for your space, keep in mind the size and shape of your room. If you’re planning to have your dining table accenting an existing nook in a larger room, you’ll want to make sure the one you choose isn’t too wide or too long.

Additionally, consider the shape of your table. Smooth, rounded tables fit well and add an elegant touch to nook spaces. They also allow ease of movement around the table. If your dining room is a large, open space, a large rectangular table will help fit the space better as well as present an impressive focal point in the room.

Choosing Species and Stain

When choosing a species and stain for your dining room table set you’ll want to take a moment to consider the other furniture in the space, and how you want your new furniture to interact with it. If your dining room curio cabinets and other furniture are made of a dark wood and you want your new furniture to match, consider cherry or oak with a dark ebony stain. If your furniture is a lighter hue consider elm or hickory with a provincial stain.

Another option is to choose a shade that doesn’t match in order to make your dining room table set really stand out. Choosing furniture made of the same species as your existing furniture but accented with a different stain is one way to maintain a connection between your furniture pieces while still allowing your new pieces to bring a new look to the space.

Choosing Quality

When choosing any new furniture, and especially dining room sets that will be used often throughout the years, you’ll want to choose something that will maintain its appearance and function for as long as possible. 

Amish furniture is handcrafted using time-tested carpentry techniques that yield beautiful and strong furniture that lasts for generations. Everything from the carefully chosen natural materials to the final compilation of the piece is done with longevity and beauty as the goal.

Shopping American-Made Furniture

Once you’ve determined what you want in your dining room table set, and have an idea of the size, style, and species you’re looking for, if you, like many modern homeowners, want to shop 100% American-made products, consider Amish furniture.

Amish furniture is made by Amish Americans right here in the U.S.A. from start to finish. Amish craftsmen maintain their own natural wood sources and craft their furniture pieces by hand in carpentry shops within their communities. When you bring home Amish furniture, you’re not only bringing home quality, you’re also supporting a fellow American and their family.
