Certain materials are more prone to wear, which means they might not be able to endure the typical heavy use of a kitchen dining set. Here are some of the popular dining set materials to consider:

Wood: Nothing suits a traditional style dining set like solid wood. It’s often pricier than other materials, though it offers natural appeal and extreme sturdiness. An array of unique finishes gives wood great character, plus scratches and chips can be easily repaired.

Veneer: A veneer-style table is topped with a layer of hardwood, giving it an authentic look. The supporting layer, however, is typically plywood. A wood veneer cannot be refinished countless times like solid wood can, but it is less porous and less prone to scratching.

Stone: Natural stones such as marble and quartz offer unmatched appearance as part of a white dining room set or black dining room set. Stone tabletops exude luxury. They are also strong. You’ll want to add a sealant over a stone top to protect against the material’s porous nature.

Glass: Your dining room will benefit from a sense of openness with a glass table. The glass can be clear, frosted or tinted for your dining room table set. Glass tabletops can scratch or chip easily, though, and will likely have an abundance of fingerprints.
