Tips for choosing a dining chair

No longer are we restricted to buying our dining room chairs with the rest. You have two options: you can choose to buy a complete set of colourful modern dining chairs with the table and the table, or you can let your personal style shine through by choosing your own table and chairs.

These tips are from our experts to help you choose the right dining chair for you.

Be sure to choose the right dimensions

You will most likely want to select a dining chair that measures 43 cm in width to provide comfort for your derriere, especially if you plan to host dinner parties. It is best to pick dining chairs with a width of around 55 cm. However, if you are looking for armrests, it’s okay to go a little wider.

A seat that measures 40-45 centimetres in height and 30 centimetres away from the top of your table is a good choice. It is important to choose the right size for your room and dining table so the chair doesn’t feel cramped.

Consider the shape and design of your chair.

You should choose the right seat shape for your table. Round seats don’t work well with rectangular or square tables, while square or rectangular dining chairs will look great with any shape of table.

For those dining tables with curved legs and ornate patterns, curved cabriole legs are the best option to tie them all together.

Style and function are equally important

Dining chairs can be used in other rooms of your home, too. It is smart to select a dining chair that can be used in multiple areas of your home. This is both practical and stylish. You can use them as occasional chairs in your bedroom, study, hallway, or corner of your living room.

Make smart decisions about upholstery

It is important to choose dining chairs that are easy-to-clean and durable if you have pets or children. Slipcovered dining chairs can be a great idea, especially if they are made of linen or a cotton blend fabric that can be removed for dry clean.
