How to Select the Perfect Dining Room Set

In many ways, your dining room is the heart of your home. Not only is it a place where you can enjoy family meals, but it also serves as a space for friendly conversations, holiday entertaining, and so much more. Considering how much time you and your family will be spending in your dining room, it is important that you select your dining room furniture set with care. Here are some simple tips that will help ensure that the dining set you choose is the right fit for you.

Establish a Price Range

When searching for a new dining set, it’s best to set a price range before you even start to shop. By starting out with a set price range, it will limit your temptation to overspend. At Harlem Furniture, we can provide you with a wide range of affordable options, so no matter what your budget, you can expect to find an abundance of options to choose from. Believe it not, we have five-piece dining room sets available for less than $200!


Consider Table Size and Shape

Before purchasing a new dining set, measure the room where it will be placed. You will want to make sure there are at least two feet between the dining table and the wall to ensure your guests have enough room to easily get in and out of their chairs. Table shape is also important, depending on the size of the room. Rectangular tables are generally well-suited for larger rooms, and they can accommodate a sizable number of guests, especially if you purchase one with a leaf extension. Round dining tables are a good fit for smaller spaces, and the shape helps create an intimate atmosphere where guests can easily converse with one another.


Consider Seating Options

At Harlem Furniture, we sell dining room sets with a diverse selection of seating options. In addition to dining sets with high back chairs, we also sell dining sets with bar stools, counter stools, and benches. Bar stools and counter stools will give your dining room a more casual feel, while high back chairs are the best option for formal dining rooms. Dining benches are versatile and they can match almost any style of d├ęcor. Dining room benches are a particularly kid-friendly seating option, as children can easily slide on and off with little effort.
