The Anne Quinn Experience
The great thing Anne Quinn is that we will meet with you one-on-one in our showroom, and step you through all the options to find the perfect dining table set for your space. Customers appreciate the help to pick a great looking set, but we also help you make the right choices for your practical needs. This is all done without being overwhelmed and not having to go to marriage counsellor after your visit.
The first consideration is the table style. At Anne Quinn we do sell some 4 legged tables but primarily we sell pedestal tables. The benefit of the pedestal tables is that the chairs fit neatly under the table without the interference of legs in the corners. With some pedestal tables the dining chairs fit in better than others, so that is something for you to keep in mind. Often we include pictures of the tables with chairs, so you can see if you’re okay with how far in, or out, the chairs tuck in.
Table Top Shape
You will need to pick the table shape that fits your space. Most of the tables we sell are rectangular but we also sell round tables, oval tables and square tables. There are also counter height tables and bar height tables available.
Part of the decision is choosing between the various wood types: Maple, Oak or Cherry. They are all good options and it comes down to personal preference with the look that you are after. Whether you pick a maple dining table, oak dining table, or cherry dining table all are considered hardwood and are durable. Maple is the most popular choice. With your maple dining table you can decide between a wormy maple, or smooth maple. The wormy maple is less expensive option. The wood has small worm holes in it. It creates a more rustic look that some customers like but some do not.
With your dining or kitchen table you can also pick the texture on the table. Maybe you are looking for a more clean look and you can pick a smooth finish. Or if you going for a more rustic dining table you can also add a texture to the table that can look quite smart. Also with the texture you won’t need to worry about small bumps and nicks. All those small imperfections actually enhance the look. We have large samples of each of the textures options at the showroom, so you can see and feel the texture in order to make your decision.
The next consideration is your table dimensions. Because each is custom table built for you it can be sized to fit your space perfectly. Whether you need a large table or narrow table we can accommodate the table to your space. It’s good to lay out some newspaper or tape on the floor to help you visualize the space better. You want to leave enough room to pull the chairs out comfortably and for guests to get around.
Extension table or not
Expandable dining tables are versatile and make things easier. To maximize the space in your room, you are probably better off having a smaller table as an everyday table. But when guests come over, such as for a birthday party or extended family, you don’t have to setup that extra folding table, you can simply just drop in a leaf and you are good to go.
Whether you are looking for 8 seater dining table, 10 seater dining table or 12 seater dining table the ability to add leaves gives you that flexibility. The size of your dining chairs is also a factor in how many chairs will fit around the table. Generally each 12” center leaf adds two more spots. End leaves are 16” and add two more guests on each end.
Dining Chairs or Dining Benches
With your dining table set, the next big purchase is dining chairs. Often the chairs can add up to be more than the table. These are quality built-in-Canada chairs and as often said, you get what you pay for. There is a lot to consider with your dining chair, style, quality and comfort. At our showroom we have samples of each of chair so you can try them to see if they work for you. If you pick upholstered chair there are lots of fabric options. You can also pick from a faux leather or real leather option as well. There are pros and cons to each. You also have the option of getting a bench. Benches offer a lot of flexibility with seating and can create a great unique look.
Sideboard or Buffet
The great thing with purchasing your custom dining table set from Anne Quinn, is that you can get the sideboard or buffet configured to fit your space perfectly.
Although, these are some things to consider when purchasing your dining table set, the best part of the Anne Quinn experience is going through the process with the sales rep, one-on-one to figure out what best works for you. After all, this is a lifetime purchase, so it’s great to have someone helping you along the way.
