When you decide to choose solid wood dining furniture, you have to think about the style of the dining room and the type of wood to use.a lot of people choose to eat in their kitchen and use a formal dining room only for visitors and dinner parties. However Others have a combined living/dining room, and you can also find the ones who don’t have a dining room but always eat in the kitchen.
a modern style of dining table is definitely the best choice for you if you have a modern kitchen, with a solid wood frame, along with a black glass top or, if it must be wood, then oak with rosewood or American black cherry edging. If you are a fan of a formal dining room, and if it used regularly or only on those special, genuine solid hardwood or veneered dining tables would be the best pick ever.
a beautiful dining table with strong carved legs and a dark oak, cherry or walnut veneer on the top , nothing can beat that beautiful and chic look. choices of wood colors include Walnut, sapele mahogany and dark or silky oak which are considered good dark veneers to look for, while if you like the wood to have a lighter shade, then ash, American maple and silver beech gives beautiful graining when varnished. Waxing, varnishing or French polishing of veneers has a great effect on enhancing the grain and the color of wood veneers.
it is very important that you know the shade of wood you want (light or dark) and also the degree of finish: waxed, varnished or French polished. Another factor in your choice of wood will be the stability of the item. Dining tables are fairly stable but this can be improved by using a solid wooden framework that is manufactured using genuine carpentry joints rather than fixings.
You should bare in mind that its important to only use well-seasoned wood for furniture because that it will not absorb and lose moisture, and so become unstable through warping and cracking.
A beautifully polished mahogany dining table will look out of place in a rustic kitchen, just as a solid pine or untreated oak dining table would not suit a formal dining setting.thats why you should make sure that all the furniture in your dining room are matching in material and colors.
