We understand that style is a personal thing, so some suggestions may be to look into a Victorian style or a more modern approach, if it fits with the rest of your house. Yes, this is another factor to think about, how is the rest of the house decorated? If the house were a contemporary design then the Victorian really would not work. The average family home though, usually keeps a dinner setting for six to eight people. Where the average size of a dining area is ten feet by ten feet and this will normally fit the smaller of the two tables for a sitting of six adults.

Different Rooms

If the area is small then we may consider seating for four with the furniture in the dining room reflecting a cozier feeling similar to that of a dinner. Unless there is an outside space that affords room for a larger setting. If the dining area were in a Florida type room with a view of the backyard garden then this would be a perfect place for Iron furniture with soft colors that flow into the patio decor. This style even works in an open area patio used for the dining room.

Almost any way we look at the design possibilities it all begins with the total package of the home. Nonetheless, if the house were a Spanish hacienda then one would go with that style of furniture throughout the house. However, if the dining room were in a patio setting then maybe something a little different would be in order. Remember form fits function, overall style of the rest of the house, the size of the available room and the size of the family. In addition, the frequency you host a dinner party as well as your budget are most important factors. Comfort and elegance are just as important when picking furniture for the dining room.
