Tips For Choosing Dining Tables & Chairs
The first thing you’ll want to keep in mind when picking out a dining table and chairs for your space is scale! You want your dining table and chair picks to complement each other, and neither should overpower the other. Take account of measurements if you’re ordering online, especially when it comes to height. You want enough room underneath the dining table for guests to sit comfortably on the chair without hitting the underside of the table. If you opt for a cushioned or upholstered dining chair, take cushion height into account, too!
Next, consider style and color/wood tones. In our projects, we prefer dining tables and chairs that coordinate but don’t match. For example, pair black wood chairs with a light wood table, or slipcovered chairs with a solid wood table. When it comes to style, try to stay in the same general design style for your chairs and table. If your table is more modern, opt for equally modern chairs. If your chairs have mid-century lines, look for a table that echoes those elements.
