Chairs should not be rickety or wobble. When the chair has a padded seat, the corners should be reinforced with screwed-in (not glued) corner blocks. Padded seats should be removable so the cover can be changed. Fabric covered chairs might not exactly be appealing if you have young children who are messy eaters. Leather is a superb option for quick cleanup, as is stain resistant microfiber upholstery. Slip covers on Parson's chairs are another easily cleaned option for the dining room.
Dining tables come in every shapes and sizes. When shopping for a new table, consider how big is your family, how big is your space and how you would like to use the table. Make sure you have a chair for each person in your family and space for at least two extras for guests. If you anticipate throwing a birthday party or having guests over for supper, you might choose table with leaves or an extension which means you can increase the size for special occasions and decrease it for everyday use.
