Tips for selecting the perfect dining chair

January 9, 2014

When it comes to your dining room selecting the dining table is only half the battle. Having the perfect dining chair can make a whirl of difference and can completely transform the mood of your dining room. The shape, color, finish, material, and comfort level are all key components when looking for the right dining chair. The right combination of the above characteristics can say so much about your personality and style. When it comes to creating a specific look in your dining area, consider these tips.

Mix it up. If you have a rectangular table (which may or may not come with a leaf for extension), consider mixing 2 styles of chairs. I like to suggest an armless chair for the sides of the table and a heftier arm chair for the ends. This gives a more formal, sophisticated look to your space.

Consider a bench! Again, if you have a rectangular table, maybe a bench on one side is ideal, especially if you have a smaller dining area. It allows for more space and is perfect for the kids! You can add a cushion for more comfort or leave alone.

Think about versatility. If you have an open floor plan and entertain a lot, you may want to consider opting for dining chairs that can be used in your living or family room when entertaining. Look for fabrics or styles that will compliment your other seating.

Add your own personality! Your dining room is the perfect place to showcase your design style. Don’t be afraid to jazz it up with fun fabrics, bold colors, or a unique design. Look for inspirational spaces on Houzz, Pinterest, or retail catalogs.
