Find the formality of matching dining table and chairs a bit conservative? Rather than spend your hard earned money on something that doesn’t inspire, why not mix and match your dining room furniture? It’s not as hard as it sounds; it’s all about finding common ground.
The key to successfully mixing and matching dining room furniture is an element of consistency. Interior designers will always ensure there is a key element that’s kept constant in the whole dining room set; whether it’s shape, colour palette, style or size. Keep this in mind as you read on and you will be a furniture-matching guru in no time.
Where to Start?
First and foremost, select a table that fits your style, purpose and dining room dimensions. Is your dining room large with plenty of space to move about? Then a long, rectangular table will be a good choice. Or do you only have a smaller dining room that is used by only a few people? Go with a square or circular table. Once you have selected a table, let’s get the match-making business started with the designer savoir-faire on how to choose dining chairs to match your table.
Tip #1: Choose a Style, Contrast with Colours
This is probably the easiest way to mix and match furniture; stick to a style and vary the colours. It’s also a great way to introduce colourful dining room chairs and add a pop of colour into the dining room without going overboard.
