Kitchen Chairs and Wood Dining Chairs Introduction
How to Choose the Best Brown Dining Chairs
Picking the best dining chairs is predominantly a matter of quality. The strength and craftsmanship of the chairs is very important. After all, no one wants their chair to break in the middle of a meal! Dining chairs are multifunctional pieces of furniture. While their main task will be to seat diners, they’re also easy to move around for use outside, in the kitchen, and in the living room. If you’re looking for something with a bit of a difference, try modern wood dining chairs. If a traditional style appeals to you more, try a set of solid wood dining chairs. Ask yourself what you’ll use your new chairs for. If they’re going to stay in the dining room, a set of elegant brown dining chairs is a good choice. A brown wood dining chair offers a traditional, classic appeal.
Not so sure if brown dining chairs are for you? Read on for our how-to guide on choosing the best wood dining chairs, in any color.
Size - Modern dining chairs come in many different sizes. This size is usually determined by the height of the dining table. Before shopping for chairs, measure your table’s height so that your family and guests won’t be sitting too low or too high.
Style - There is an eclectic mix of styles when it comes to dining and kitchen chairs. Retro, vintage, modern, mid-century, and Scandinavian are all popular choices right now. Pick a style that you love and that you know will go well with your existing decor.
Color - Wood dining chairs usually come in neutral or earth-toned colors. Untreated, light wood dining chairs offer a change from traditionally darker chairs and look great in a light and airy room. You’ll find many shades and tones to choose from including honey and mahogany.
Material - Wood dining chairs as the name implies, are made from strong brown hardwood: mahogany, oak, and beech are all popular woods. The woods are processed and sometimes stained to bring out the natural color of the wood. Hardwoods last longer than softer woods like pine.
How to Mix and Match Dining Chairs
An intriguing and eye-catching style right now is to mix and match dining chairs instead of going for a set of identical chairs. We love this trend for its quirkiness and fun factor. There is the potential for it to go wrong though, with that in mind, check out the following list of hints and tips on how to mix and match your way to style.
Same chairs, different colors: This one is an easy way to inject a bit of personality into your dining room. Simply find a set of matching dining room chairs, or repurpose your existing ones, then paint each in a different color. Primary colors are bold and go well in rooms with white or off-white walls.
Same color, different chairs: Another option which creates a cool and funky vibe is to go for different wooden chairs painted in exactly the same color. We love this look because it’s unexpected and very modern. It’s also super easy for you to do at home.
Highlight the host: Place larger and interesting chairs at either end of the table. You can paint these to make them a different color, or even upholster the seats in a funky fabric. Placing eye-catching chairs at the table ends creates interest in a dining room.
Mix retro and contemporary chairs: Consider arranging curvy, mid-century modern chairs with the sleek straight lines of contemporary chairs. Throw a few rustic beauties in for good measure and you’ll have an eclectic feast for the eyes. You could also lose the chairs and make use of benches for an informal, stylish feel.
Textual unity: Sometimes, the best way of bringing together different chairs is not by matching styles or through the use of the matching colors. A unified texture among your chairs, no matter how different the chairs are, will create a cohesive space. Try an interesting fabric or a distressed wood finish to create texture.
