How To Choose Dining Chairs For Your Home
Choosing furniture for your home is no easy task, and dining chairs are no exception. Unlike other furniture like sofas, dining chairs are usually regarded as complementary pieces as opposed to centrepieces like dining tables. However, that should not get in your way of owning dining chairs with gorgeous designs. All it takes is some careful consideration and a wild imagination.
Choose a look and feel
Most of the time, the theme or colour palette of your home will have already been decided before you shop for furniture. All hope isn’t lost, however, as there is always the option of playing with colour contrast. In simpler terms, colour contrast is the difference between two colours. It could be subtle or dramatic, depending on your personal style.
When colour contrast is done properly, both colours will end up complementing each other. For instance, if your dining room is painted in blue, you can always go for dining chairs in colours like yellow. By default, the dining chair will stand out already. If your dining room is painted in green, wooden dining chairs will elevate the space like never before. Alternatively, if your home is in a minimalist or Scandinavian theme, you should consider playing with different shades of grey or brown; these colours will create a hygge experience that gives your home that warm and cosy feeling.
Extra tip: If you are trying to decide on a look and feel for a smaller home, we recommend chairs that take up less visual space. Wire chairs are the best in this category as they are see-through chairs.
Decide on your preferred comfort level
Dining chairs come in all shapes, sizes, and materials, which is why comfort levels will vary.
Take for example, armchairs and side chairs. One comes with an arm rest while the other doesn’t. However, it doesn’t mean that side chairs are uncomfortable, as not everyone likes the idea of arm rests.
Another example would be dining chairs with upholstered seats and wooden or plastic chairs. Some feel that upholstered seats are much more soft and comfortable, while others feel that wooden or plastic dining chairs do not heat up as fast.
There’s also the option of back support. The norm is to go for mid back chairs, but those who prefer to chit chat while enjoying their meal might appreciate high back dining chairs, instead.
Did you know that there are also different types of foams used in dining chairs? One of the better quality ones is moulded foam as it makes long hours of sitting extra comfy.
Decide on the size
The next step is to find the balance between your wants and needs. By default, armchairs are more obstructive in nature, as the chairs need to be pulled further back from the table in order to accommodate users as they get in and out of the chair. Furthermore, some homes are smaller than others, which means that there’s less space to work with. For this, stackable dining chairs will do just fine, as you can simply stack them up when not needed. Alternatively, you may opt for smaller dining chairs, as it makes it easier for you to tuck the chairs under the table to save space when not in need.
Think of potential maintenance
Wanting your furniture to appear timeless is perfectly fine, but there’s a lot of maintenance involved. However, that’s not the case for easy-to-clean dining chairs. Chairs made of plastic or synthetic leather are easier to clean, so search for those if maintenance is a concern.
