Choosing the right dining chairs
Dining chairs and the dining table are the focal points in the dining room. You must choose the right chair for your comfort and the good looks of the room.
The dining chair dimensions should be compatible with the dining table. The average height of a dining table is 30-inches. The space between the top of the dining chair and the tabletop is usually 8 to 12-inches which is the most comfortable. So, measure your table and choose chairs accordingly. Remember that upholstered chairs will compress slightly when you sit on them, and you should factor this into your calculations. It is easier to choose a dining table and chairs from the same manufacturer for the best compatibility.
Chair width and depth
When a dining table is not in use, the chairs are usually pushed under the table. The width and depth of the chairs determine if the chairs will fit comfortably under the table.
Dining chairs with arms
If the dining chair has arms, this will determine if you can fit the chair under a table. Dining chairs that fit under the table save space in the room when the table is not used. This is especially important if you have a smaller dining room.
Chairs that have very low backs in comparison to the table height look odd. Unless this is a look that you prefer, choose chairs with backs that extend at least 2-inches above the table height.
Chair style and colour
It is common to choose dining chairs that harmonise with the style and colour of the dining table. In some cases, intentional mismatches look attractive.
Keeping dining chairs clean
Maintain dining chairs according to the instructions of the manufacturer. If your dining chairs are upholstered, using removable and washable covers helps keep them looking fresh. If you use removable pads or cushions on your dining chairs, choose ones that are easy to launder.
Perfectly matching dining chairs
Dining chairs do not have to match if your decor style is eclectic. Mismatched chairs look attractive when they have something that ties them together. This could be a similar finish, colour or even matching upholstery.
Spacing dining chairs
When you arrange dining chairs side by side, they must have at least 24-inches between them when measured from the seat’s center. This spacing is essential to allow for enough elbow room. If your table is larger, you could be more generous with the spacing.
Dining benches vs dining chairs
Dining benches are handy for seating more people at a dining table. They easily accommodate a larger family or many children at the table without the need for extra chairs. Benches are also handy for seating an unexpected guest at the table quickly.
Extra dining chairs
If you have an extra dining chair, use your imagination and use it as a pot stand with a tray and pot. Extra dining chairs can also be used as side tables or gift tables.
