To Extend or Not to Extend
An extending Oak dining Table can give that extra bit of room. If you have guests coming round? extend it. Need more room? extend it. Too much food on the table? extend it. Having the option to do this makes the extending dining table so much more appealing. Also even though the table is extendable, it doesn't lose any quality! So it's a win win situation! So if the option is there to get an extending dining table, do it.
Which Style you should be going for?
This is a very subjective question as it always comes down to personal taste really, however this may help steer that decision. With so many collections of Oak Dining Sets, you need to get the right one! If you're looking for that more rustic classic look then the French Chateau or the Cotswold Collections are perfect. With that darker finish, it has a really warm look to it and gives you a hint of days from yesteryear.
If you lie somewhere in the middle, finding you would like a taste of both Richmond and Kuba are the types to be looking at. They have a very mild look to them, and blend with that beige/cream style of a modern home. So there's something for everyone after all.
Which colour Dining Chairs?
Dining Chairs are always awkward to choose, purely down to the amount of choice there is! A darker table, Brown Leather Dining Chairs always seem to work best as they don't completely dull it down, and compliment it perfectly. For a lighter Dining Table, Ivory Leather Dining Chairs are perfect, as they enhance the brightness of the dining table really blending in with the set. For those mid-brown coloured dining tables, the Black Leather Dining Chairs work a dream.
