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
If you don‵t actually have a dining room, just an area that‵s an extension of the living room, then a small round table tucked in the corner might be sufficient and won‵t take up too much space, look out for oak furniture styles that are balanced on a pedestal instead of legs as they allow you to have the opportunity of adding extra chairs around the table when you need to make room for more guests.
For people with more confidence in their decorating skills, purchasing separate pieces is fine. However, for those that are not so confident, purchasing a set might be easier. Also, by mixing and matching pieces, the room may have a more eclectic look. On the other hand, purchasing a set may have somewhat of a more formal appearance. Again, this is up to the home owners to decide.
