KITCHEN FURNITURE: Kitchen Chair Styles
"Pull a chair and make yourself comfortable" is the summary of an inviting invitation to relax and chat. However, choosing the right chairs for your dining room or kitchen table can be difficult. With so many options on the Internet, it's a good idea to narrow your choices so you can easily choose your favorite chairs instead of the regrets you buy.
To narrow down your choices, there are a few key things to consider:
1- Classic? Modern? Do you want this area to be more modern or classic? Formal designates a generally padded seat or a traditional wooden chair with or without upholstery. Everyday wicker can be wood or synthetic material.
2- Upholstered, padded or hard surface? Imagine how much time you'il spend in the chair. For dinner, family holiday or daily use - from breakfast to late night homework? A more comfortable and ergonomic seat is always the best, but it is really important if you spend hours on your desk.
3- Wood, metal, wicker? There are many options when it comes to chair materials. Wood is the most common steel / wood or wicker / wood combination. Most styles (traditional, contemporary, and more) offer more options in each material category. If you're searching online, many sites offer selection based on search criteria, including styles, materials, and more. These tools can be an easy way to narrow your selection.
4- Small, medium or large? When choosing a chair, consider the size. Both the size of the table / room and the size of the people who will use it.
5- With arms? Sleeveless? Finally, consider whether you want all / some of your chairs to have arms. It is common to use armchairs at the head of a rectangular or oval table. The arms add dimension to each chair, so if you want all of your chairs to have arms, take precautions to make sure they fit on your desk before you buy. A little research can help you narrow down your search and make you happy in your long-term decision.
