A Clear Guide To Follow This!
It all comes to this: you have your dining room set ready but somehow your dining room chairs don’t match or they’re not comfortable enough. This time around on our weekly signature we’re going to make sure you get the right dining room chair to have the best of your dining room design set!
Let’s get to the core business of the deal. When shopping for your brand new dining room, standard seat height is 18 inches. Be sure to take into account the apron of your table, the wooden panel that connects the legs to the top. Once you have this part ready, you’ll need to figure out how many chairs you’ll want around your table. So, leave 24 inches of room per chair. If you have a long table, then 72 inches will comfortably seat 6, and a 96-inch table comfortably seats 8, while a 120-inch table comfortably seats 10.
When it comes to comfort this means the bee’s knees as well – upholstered or un-upholstered dining chairs and its advantages and disadvantages… So, while a dining chair that isn’t upholstered is usually narrower and easier to fit around a smaller table an upholstered one will be more comfortable if you have long dinner parties.
Fabric & Finish
Of course, you’ll want your finishes to complement each other but not completely matching. One consistent element and one contrasting one is a perfect balance. According to ballardesigns, “Think about incorporating both one consistent element and one contrasting element. Contrast makes the space more exciting and interesting, while consistency will keep it from feeling hodge podge.”
Head Chair & Side Chairs
Head chairs are a great way to bring more pattern and personality into your dining room design. This is a great opportunity to: add a bold fabric, an unusual shape or a heavier style to ground your dining room style. Our suggestion: choose a head chair that feels heavier than your side chair.
This is a very delicate topic. Dining rooms are meant to be special and to gather people on the best of the occasions. This is the perfect opportunity to pack this area with colours, patterns and personality. This is the perfect way of using bolder dining chairs!
