How to choose the perfect dining chairs?
This week we want to talk about things you have to take into account when choosing the dining room chairs. There is a great doubt to choose these pieces about their design, number of units, materials and prints, among others. Therefore we have decided to give some tips to make your choice easier.
We know that this task is not easy, especially when we want to keep time and not get tired of them. You have to be very clear about the style and character of the house, once fixed everything is chosen around your style. It is essential to have a color palette of the house to know what tones we will choose. If we have a house with light and neutral tones we can contrast with more striking fabrics and fabrics than if we have opted for bright colors.
If the walls are dark colors, it is preferable to choose simpler chairs. With this recommended the use of natural materials and organic forms that do not have much complexity of form. So we balance the space and we do not overload it. If on the contrary we have based on a selection of beige and broken white colors, we will give more life to the area. It could be a wise choice to use more elaborate and colorful fabrics together with golden finishes. It is not necessary that all chairs are the same, we can choose different models with different shapes, colors and heights.
Regarding the number of chairs, the set is six units. We can place three chairs facing the other three or put two at the ends of the table. Keep in mind that each guest must be able to move comfortably, you must calculate the length of the table with respect to the number and width of the chairs. In case of narrowness, it is preferable to choose four pieces.
For the choice of materials, in The Room Studio we always opt for the natural ones. Especially we like to choose light wood for the body of the chair, which we contrast with a good carpet as a base. In turn, it can also be combined upholstering the seat. Many times it will be the best option since after a certain time we can reupholster it with other colors and patterns because we have tired of the drawing or due to wear. This will have a much better expense than buying one again.
Finally, before buying any chair it is essential to try it. It is important to check that the height of our table matches the height of these. In addition, its shape is subjective depending on who proves it so it must adapt to our needs and comfort.
