Choosing the Look
The first step is to choose the look you’re going for. Although there are a pretty wide variety of chairs to choose from, it really comes down to two philosophies:
One, you can go for a similar look as your dining room table. This gives a nice, coordinated look to the whole room. If the table is made of wood, then get wooden chairs. If the table is angular, then get angular chairs, etc.
Another approach is to deliberately choose a different look from the rest of the dining table. Generally you don’t want to go too far off, but if you have a white table, choosing black chairs can give a very nice contrast effect.
If you have a glass table, having wooden chairs that use empty space as part of the design can continue the “empty space” effect that the glass table creates.
So on and so forth. Spend a little bit of time thinking about how the chairs you’re buying might fit into the overall design of the dining room.
What to Consider When Buying a Chair
There are quite a few things to consider when you’re buying a chair that people sometimes skip over. Here’s a list of all the things you might consider when you’re buying a chair.
Armrests – There are free form chairs, then there are chairs with arm rests. Which do you want to choose?
Material – Generally, you want to stick with the same material as the dining table is made of, unless you’re deliberately choosing a different material to go with. As a rule of thumb, wood goes with wood, metal goes with metal, etc.
Color - Another key factor is the color of the chairs. Again, as a rule of thumb the color should match the rest of the set.
Quality – Well made chairs with good materials are important. We’ve all had to sit on a wobbly chair at some point. It really makes the dining experience unpleasant to be wobbling on an unstable chair. Make sure you purchase chairs made of high quality materials.
Design Style – What’s the overall “feel” of the chair? Does it feel curvy? Spacious? Does it feel sharp? Or does it feel “clean”? The overall “feel” of the chairs should complement the overall feel of the dining table and the room.
Cushioning – You can get bareback chairs without cushions, or you could get cushioned chairs that give a padded seating experience. It’s a matter of personal preference and what you think your guests would enjoy.
Choosing the Right Chairs at the Right Price
Dining room chairs really add to the vibe of a room – But how much should you pay for them?
As a rule of thumb, paying more for higher quality workmanship is generally a good investment. Take a look around the various available chairs on the web and see what kind of price you want to pay.
Generally, if you buy your chairs online you’ll be able to get high quality chairs for much less than if you shopped at a retailer, because their overheads are so much lower.
To Sum it All Up
To sum it up, go over the list above and have an idea in your mind of what kind of chair you want to purchase. Then go to the website and see what’s available that might fit well in your dining room. It’s that simple!
