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 want a new table and chairs or maybe your floor needs to be redone. Maybe you would like to make the room bigger decide if it would be in your budget to remove one of the walls. Make sure you understand the building codes and take caution of supporting the ceiling if you plan on removing a load bearing wall. When you have created the size of dining room you like you can go shopping for your furniture.
Choosing something that looks great may be nice, but if it is too small or uncomfortable your family is going to hate it. Choosing a set that fits with your home design is a plus when it come to the look of the room. A rustic pine set would look good in an old world style home. If you have a more modern home you could go with something a little trendier.
