One of the best ways to encourage lingering after a meal is to provide comfortable furniture. Hard wooden chairs with no padding don't encourage people to sit for long periods of time, and you may find your family and friends eager to jump up from the table after a meal. If you choose soft furnishings or padding for wooden chairs, guests can sit back and relax without feeling uncomfortable. The table should be a comfortable height, with the edge not too low where it hits people's knees. Any larger pieces of furniture should match your colour scheme and feel warm and inviting and not too formal.
You may even like a bench. The choices are endless so be creative and choose something you would like. Even if you have a small dining room there are options. A small table against a wall is great for couples who don't need more than a couple chairs. Finding these sets is quite easy with a simple online search or by visiting your local furniture store.
Remember that to achieve a great new look in your dining room, you don't necessarily have to change out all of your furniture. Often, just a few striking new pieces are enough to give the space a new atmosphere. If you're only investing in a few new items, it's worth it to shell out a little extra money for something really high quality. You'll save on replacement and redecorating costs down the line. Don't be afraid to mix various styles to come up with something truly unique. If most of your furniture is cottage vintage, a few well-placed industrial design elements can create a strikingly dramatic look through juxtaposition.
