The most important thing to consider when looking for dining chairs is the fact that they must match the table. Most people purchase dining chairs in a set with a dining room table. Some retailers even have some tables and chairs that can offer a mix and match deal. This allows shoppers to change up their dining room set if they do not want an exact match between the chairs and the table. Matching the table means the obvious things like color of the wood and style, but it also means size and height. Some chairs offer seats that do not sit at the right height for some tables. The only way to really know for sure is to try the dining chairs with the table that you intend to match them with.
Another important factor of selecting dining room chairs is comfort. Some people fall in love with a particular table, but the chairs that go with it are just not very comfortable. This may be one situation when it is a good idea to try to match different chairs with the table. Sometimes having a more comfortable seat is a bit more important than having the exact chairs that are supposed to go with a specific table.
One fact that will impact how long the chairs will last is construction. It is very important to understand how chairs are constructed and be able to spot a poorly constructed chair. For example, wood chairs should be constructed with dowels or teeth connecting the pieces of wood. Compare a chair with construction like that to a chair with just flat edges that are glued or screwed together. There is certainly no comparison because the chair with just flat edges touching will break much sooner than the other chair. For metal chairs, always look for joints that are welded rather than screwed or bolted. Screws and bolts can be stripped after a time, but welds are made to hold for a very long time if they are done properly. High quality welds will be located in very inconspicuous places in the chair, and there will be several of them.
The type of material is also very important when looking for dining chairs. If you are shopping for wood chairs, always look for a chair that is solid wood. Solid wood chairs will stand the test of time, while chairs made of other materials like plywood will not. When in doubt about whether a specific chair is solid wood or not, pick the chair up to see how heavy it is. A solid wood chair should be a lot heavier than a plywood chair. Heavier is also better in the case of metal chairs. Higher quality metal tends to be heavier than lower quality metal.
It is also very easy to save a little bit of money off some dining room chairs. Always check the scratch and dent section of the retailer for chairs that may have a small scratch on them. Tiny nicks save quite a bit of money.
