Considerations for Timber Dining Sets
Timber is a timeless material used for furniture and in this article, we are looking at what you should prioritise when choosing a timber dining set. You should also consider where you are planning to place the dining set.
An important factor to consider is the quality of timber used.
Some of the timber types that are known for their durability are teak, acacia and cedar. You need to select timber that has a high resistance to rot and insect damage. There are also coatings and finishes that can improve natural resistance of the timber. You can check with the manufacturer how the timber has been finished and what you can do to restore its colour and shine once it fades. The size of the dining set should also be considered. You need to have a good idea of how many seatings are needed. Make sure that the size of the dining set s proportional to where you are placing it. There has to be sufficient space to go around it. You will see so many designs and styles for timber dining tables and chairs but not everything will match the setting of the outdoor space you have. Consider whether you are going for a modern or traditional design. It is best to look for a timeless design instead of following trends as the style of the table and chairs will be appropriate for any time.
You should also consider the level of comfort.
Most of the time, outdoor spaces function as an extension of your living space. And if you have a large number of guests, they will spend a long time here even after the meal has concluded. So you need to make sure that the chairs have comfortable cushions or seat pads. The ergonomics of the dining set should also be considered. It is good if you can visit a showroom so that you can sit on the dining chair and see whether the dining table height is comfortable. If the showroom is far away and you are purchasing the set online, you can measure the dimensions of your indoor dining set to see what is comfortable for you and compare that with the dimensions given on the product page.
It can be very easy to live with a low maintenance dining set. This will bring down your maintenance work around the house. You can also make your job easier by covering the dining set with a waterproof cover when it is not in use. This way, you will not need to clean it every day. You can have the cover customized to the dining set dimensions so that it doesn’t look odd even when they are covered. You should also consider the budget available for the dining set. If you are planning to use this for a long time, it is best to prioritise quality over cost. However, you don’t always need to go for the most expensive pieces. Consider factors such as material quality and aesthetics and choose a furniture store that provides competitive prices.
