Wood ages well and continues to look good even with some scratches and signs of wearing over time. However, it is usually expensive and heavy to move around. Glass tops give the illusion of space and look sophisticated and modern, but generally have to be given extra care from scratches and breakage. Veneer looks like wood, but does not warp and is less expensive. It is not as durable as wood, though.
On the other hand, although not quite as common today, there are some home owners for whom the dining room is more formal. For them, it is a separate area that is only used for company. A person´s best china is used in this room. This room will not get as much use as a less formal dining area so more delicate items can be chosen, rather than opting only for the most sturdy
Once it is decided on how the room will function, it will need a dining table and chairs. Home owners may purchase separate pieces such as a table from one collection and chairs from a completely different collection. Likewise, dining room sets are also available where the whole set can be purchased as one item.
