As one of the most well-used pieces of furniture in the home, and arguably the most important, when it comes to buying a dining table there are many different factors to consider. The saying “buy well, buy once” couldn’t be truer – a dining table is certainly an investment piece of furniture, but if you buy the right one, it can last a lifetime.

Whether you want a glass, marble, metal or solid wood, the possibilities are endless when it comes to choosing the right material for your dining table. However, there are a few things you should take into consideration before making that big purchase.

Buying wooden dining room sets online can be intimidating. This is a dining set that will stay in your family for generations, the fear of messing it up can be overwhelming! There are so many questions.

  • What type of wood should you get?
  • Can it be stained to any colour?
  • Do you want an extendable dining room table?
  • Should you get a 6-seater dining table of a 8-seater dining table?


A wooden dining table is perhaps one of the most popular choices when it comes to dining tables, and it’s not without reason. Wood is classic, durable and is easy to repair if it gets damaged. Not only that, but it’s also incredibly beautiful. There are so many different variations of wood to choose from, whether it’s Pine, Walnut or Oak. Each piece of wood has a natural grain that shows character and depth, and as no two pieces of wood are the same you get a unique table that you won’t find anywhere else. However, when it comes to solid-wood tables, you need to be careful of moisture. If drink or food is spilt, it must be wiped up immediately as it can eventually lead the wood to split and swell overtime – be especially wary of watermarks left by cups!


Another element of the dining table you need to consider are the table legs. People often forget that the table legs and supports can dictate how many people you can sit around the table.

When you view a dining room table, sit at it and make sure you can cross your legs. Take into account taller members of your family or guests and make sure there is enough room for longer legs.

A table with thin legs in each corner will be easier to fit chairs in that a chunkier or ornate design or intricate base.
