Research ideas about how you want your dining room to look first bur remember, showrooms are massive and furniture can look quite small until you get home and realise you can’t get it through the front door and it doesn’t fit inside the desired area.

We give you a rundown of the different types available.

High-Gloss

High Gloss furniture is a new fashion trend for contemporary properties.  This furniture is typically made from wood with a smooth high gloss coating.  Surfaces are highly reflective and give a beautifully smooth and polished finish.  To protect this type of furniture, you should not drag anything across the surface and use heat resistant mats to place under hot dishes.  White high gloss furniture gives a clean, crisp and fresh look to any space and most retailers have a range of colours to suit your tastes.

Oak

Most wooden tables and chairs are solid and hard-wearing and will need care and attention to keep them looking in tip-top condition.  Once you make the investment, with the right care it could be a great investment.  Most retailers will either give you or will sell you a product to prolong the life of the furniture.  It should be used every six months. You should purchase cleaner and polish to keep it looking its best all year round.  You can purchase felt pads to protect your floors here.

Dining Chairs

Suede

Suede is a fabric that has a velvety feel and finish.  It is easy to look after; some items can be wiped down but light colours (if not looked after) can get quite dirty if you don’t look after it.  You can purchase felt pads to protect your floors here.

Leather

There are different styles and types of leather furniture.  In the United Kingdom, leather goods should come with a leather mark that identifies it as real leather.  Retailers pay to use this mark to show that the goods have been approved.  To keep leather looking its best, give it a dust with a soft brush and if you have any spills, wipe with a damp cloth.  Most retailers either give you or will sell you a product to prolong the life of the piece that should be used every six months.  You can purchase felt pads to protect your floors here.

  • Full-grain

With this type of leather, you should see variations in colour and distinctive markings.  Full-grain has a high-quality look and should feel supple.

  • Corrected grain

This type of leather has been buffed so you should not see any variations in colour or any distinctive markings.  It is easy to clean, cheaper than full-grain but much more hard-wearing if you have a family with young children.

  • Split leather

This type of leather is normally used on the surfaces of the furniture that is not used (i.e. the back and sides).  It is taken from the underside of the hide.

  • Faux leather

This type is not leather but has the look and feels like the real thing.  Faux leather is normally scratch-resistant and water-resistant.  It is much cheaper to buy than real leather.
