Dining room chairs are very stressful to buy, and buying the right, comfortable chairs is quite a task. The chairs can cost a bomb and getting the right chairs become imperative. Luckily with today’s style trends, you have more options than ever for dining seating and they don’t have to include buying 12 antique chairs which would cost a king’s ransom.Dining areas in modern homes are becoming smaller and you need a smart dining room décor idea to make the most of it.
Here are some tips to help you-
Your chairs need not match your table. In fact, today it is more fashionable to have your chairs complement, but not match your table. Decide on your dining table first then pick up the chairs that match it. Determine how many people you need to seat on a regular basis and how many people your dining table can actually hold. Take note of were the legs of your table are located and how many chairs will fit around if you allow 24 inches for a chair.
Are you going to max out your table by getting enough seating or are you getting enough for your everyday meal and will use other chair options for big events? Are you going to keep all the chairs around the table or are you going to live them up against a wall or use them in some other rooms? So you have to decide as to what you are going to do and how to go about it. Most tables are of standard height and the dining chairs will go along with them so you don’t have to worry about that. However do measure the clearance height of your table, so your guests have enough space to cross their legs and enough leg room. If you have one of the taller tables, the counter or bar height tables then you will have a limited choice.
Make sure your chairs are sitting on the correct rug, so as not to cause a mishappening.
Matching side and arm was your grandmother’s style, but if you opt for it you have to get the entire set as buying some later will not be in sync. Non-matching chairs which match each other but not the table give you a great leeway, in purchasing and allows you to infuse your personal style. Using chairs that are all different around the table, this is not for everybody but if used in the proper manner can be very innovative stating its own style. They have a double advantage as they can serve in some other room when not needed.
Bench seating is very much in vogue, you can replace chairs on one side or more by mere benches. It works well in both contemporary and country homes. The big plus here is that you can squeeze some extra people here. It also works when you want to break the monotony and create something different.
The last but most important fact is that the chairs have to be comfortable, because if you cannot sit through a meal then it is not worth it. Take time in picking your chairs try sitting on them if after five minutes your back starts hurting then it is time to move on to a new set, no matter even if it looks like a million dollars.
