Picking furniture for your bachelor pad can seem tedious. Here are a few simple things to remember for a dining area complete with practical pieces you love.
Dining room tables
An important tip to shopping for dining room furniture, it’s a better idea to buy a table first, and match the chairs to it, rather than the other way around.
Remember to take into consideration the size of the space you have for a table. You don’t want a table that no one can squeeze into because it’s too close to the wall. You want to have plenty of space to push out and pull in dining room chairs.
Basic finishes for dining room tables are clear or colored glass, metal or wood. Picking a table with a clear glass top can be a great idea for a smaller space. The clear glass will make the table look smaller than it actually is. Contemplate different shapes of dining room tables, like circular, square, rectangular, oval or others.
As always, when buying furniture, always make sure you can get it in the door of your home or apartment. Consider the size of doors or elevators or any other obstacles that may prevent you from getting a table into your home.
Dining room chairs
The choice of unique chairs can completely change the way your dining room looks. There are many types of chairs to try out, including upholstered, pedestal, metal and wood. You can also choose from different shapes or heights, chairs with arms or without and more.
Just because you’ve purchased a wood or metal table does not mean your chairs have to be the same. Wooden chairs at a metal table can have a great industrial affect, and vice versa with metal chairs at a wooden table.
Try out all your dining chair options before purchasing them. Make sure they’re comfortable and fit at the table you’ve purchased. Picking a fabric or material that can easily be wiped off makes for easy kitchen clean up as well, keeping your work to a minimum.
Creating your own bar
Also consider creating your own bar in your dining room by arranging glasses and bottles in a hutch. Another great alternative is adding bar stools to your kitchen counter. If you don’t have a bar table in your dining room or kitchen area, adding a long table at the end of your kitchen counter creates space for bar stools. The addition of leather, metal or wooden bar stools is a great upgrade to any kitchen.
