What’s to Know About Getting the Right Dining Room Chairs


Dining Room Chairs




Dining room chairs play a huge role in the dining room area. Their appearance and how they’ll fit in is very important, but as well as the amount of comfort they will offer. The following are things to know about getting the right chairs.

Chair Sizes

Most dining room tables are 30 inches high, while standard dining room chairs are normally 18 inches high. The distance between the height of chairs and the surface of the table is what determines the level of comfort people will get. This is something you’ll need to thoroughly consider before purchasing dining room chairs – as much as they may be appealing and enticing, they need to be of the right height in relation to the table to provide optimum comfort.

A thumb rule to keep in mind is that the back of your dining room chair must always be higher than the table’s surface.

Dining Room Chair Styles

There are numerous designs and styles of dining room chairs, making it impossible to name them all, except of course for a couple of popular ones. Regency, Queen Anne, Chippendale, Ladder-back , Mid-Century and Windsor are common styles of chairs, and these can be frequently found.

Upholstered Dining Room Chairs

These kind of dining room chairs add comfort, style and softness to the room. If you decide on using dining room chairs for your home, you also need to consider what will go into your dining room before getting the fabric. If you have kids in the house, then you may want to consider something like patterned fabric that can easily hide stains. Leather is another good alternative that can be wiped off easily.


With all these in mind, you can now go ahead and pick the right chairs to compliment the design and accent of your home. Also make sure to purchase chairs that blend with wall colors and overall outlook of your home.
