How to choose the chairs for dining room or kitchen

Coronado Dining Side Chairs in Oak

Dining chairs can set the tone for a dining room or kitchen. If you need chairs for the dining area or kitchen, you should remember that the chairs are a kind of furniture that is exposed to the maximum loads. Take your time as the properly and carefully selected dining chairs can serve you for years to come.

In general, the dining table dictates the style to the chairs. If you have a wooden dining table, even the most comfortable plastic chairs will be completely out of place. In this case, buy wooden side chairs with a classic design. It is more convenient to acquire a dining table and chairs at a time, and not necessarily that they were from the same collection.


When choosing chairs you should decide what you want them to be: solid or upholstered? Both the options have its advantages. Keep in mind that the padded seats are sagged with time and they will require repair. Solid chairs serve much longer.

A great solution for a small or fully furnished dining room is transparent plastic chairs. They have one great advantage - if you get tired of their appearance, sew a cover and put on them.

If you have young children or have your meal in the kitchen every day, choose the dining chairs with easily washable upholstery.
