When purchasing a great dinette set, people often have many questions that aren’t answered by the manufacturer. Sure, the ad tells you how much a certain set is and how many chairs it comes with but what about the other, unanswered questions?
First, people often use rugs or carpets under their dinette sets to protect the floors from getting scuffed under the moving of chairs. How large should this rug be? Ideally, you want a rug that when the chair is pulled out to a level that is comfortable for sitting back in the chair (i.e. the after dinner coffee position) that all four legs are still comfortably in the chair.
If you’re wondering what else you should buy for your dining room besides a great dinette set, there are so many different options available to you. First, the dinette set isn’t the only table that can be in your dining room. Try buying bar tables to set around the edges of your dining room for additional, informal seating. Be sure to keep it in the same style as the rest of the room though. If you are getting a very formal dining room with high backed chairs and formal carved leg chairs, don’t get barstools to sit around a table on the side of your set!
