When it comes to picking out new chairs for your dining room table there are a few things you need to consider. If you’re planning to use them with an existing dining room table, or you’re getting a new table separately it’s important to make sure the chairs match, not in color but functionality.
Check the height
It’s important to measure how high your existing or separate table is. When it comes to picking out chairs for your table, you want to make sure that your chairs fit under your table. While it’s important to find dining room chairs that fit under the table, it’s also important to find chairs that have a functional chair seat height. You want to make sure that your family or dinner guests can fit in their seats under the table, and also be high enough to reach food, but not low enough that they feel like they’re sitting a bucket.
Check the width
If you want a certain number of chairs to fit around your dining room table, you’ll need to measure the width of your seats. You want to make sure that guests can fit around the table, but not be completely wedged in. You want to make sure that they have room to pull their chairs in and out from the table.
Make it comfy
A new trend popping up for dining room chairs is to have a higher couch or love seat as part of the seating. If you’re looking to create more of an informal breakfast nook, a love seat is a great way to go. Back a table up to the love seat and put two or three chairs on the other side of the table, and you’ll have the best of both worlds.
Benches are a great way to add comfort and more seating to your dining room table. There are a couple different ways you can organize them. Trying a bench on one side of the table is a great way to try it out. If you’re ready to commit to benches, try adding benches at the ends of the tables, or only on the sides. The key to styling benches with dining room tables, is to have chairs in with them.
A great new trend in dining room tables is experimenting with different colored chairs. Try finding a wide variety of colors that fit with your dining room. Another great way to try this is to choose from a smaller palate and try two to three colors.
If you’re looking for an even bigger change up, try using different styles of chairs together, old fashioned, modern, farmhouse. Sometimes the clash of styles goes great together. Try mixing and matching different chairs for an updated and modern look in your dining room.
