Tips for Selecting the Perfect Dining Chairs

Here are some simple steps to follow to ensure you’ll love your dining room chairs.

Step 1Select Your Table. By selecting your table first you can use it for style, material choice, size, and color inspiration when picking out the chairs.

Tables_New

1. Somerset Dining Table, $899.95
2. Westport Dining Table, $499.95
3. Lexington Dining Table, $999.95
4. Chatham Counter Height Dining Table, $399.95
5. Marietta Dining Table, $899.95
6. Ashcroft Dining Table, $599.95 

Step 2. Determine Chair Size. Once you know the size of your table, you can begin to figure out how many chairs you will need accommodate that space. A few things to keep in mind; the ideal seat height is 18”- 19”, keeping a minimum of 12” between the seat and the tabletop. Seat width can vary, but in general for maximum comfort, look for a chair with a width over 18″ and between 20”-24” deep.

 

Step 3. What’s Your Style? When selecting the right style for your chairs look to your dining table for some answers. If your table is a square or rectangular shape with crisp lines, look for chairs with similar straight legs and a square seat or back. If your table is round or oval look for chairs with more organic features like curved legs and an arched back. They do not have to be a perfect match, but keeping the design elements in common will tie them together.

Matching chairs offer a more traditional look but don’t be afraid to mix and match styles for a unique space. Paint them the same color for a cohesive blend like the chairs below.

Or just keep two different styles as head chairs at the either end of the table like here.

 Tip: When looking into upholstery for your dining chairs, keep it easy! You never
know when a spill or stain might happen. It is best to use leathers, polyester
blends, and machine washable slipcovers. You’ll want something that
will hold up to years of clean up and wear!

Tip: Don’t forget about benches! They add variety to your dining set by
creating additional seating and can be a great contrast with a pop of color.

Tip: Speaking of color, using colors from surrounding areas in your
home to match your dining set to (like above) can make your space
feel more cohesive especially in an open concept floor plan.

 

Step 4. Portability. Keep in mind that you’ll need to be able to move your chairs in and out from the table. If the chairs are too heavy this might make moving them cumbersome (especially for children and elderly persons). Slat back or cut-out back chairs make for an easy grip.

Reminder: Don’t forget comfort! After you’ve narrowed down your options sit on them for a while to make sure they will be a comfortable addition to your home! Want to see more chair options? Visit bostoninteriors.com to start browsing for your perfect match.
