Dining Room Chairs
Dining room chairs play a vital role in the dining room. How they look and fit in the room is important, but it’s also imperative that they be comfortable. Here are some things you need to know about dining room chairs before you buy.
Dining room tables are usually 30″ high while the standard seat height of dining room chairs is 18″. This distance between the seat height and table surface makes it comfortable for most people to sit but always test out tables and chairs together before buying.
Dining Room Chair Styles There are so many different styles of dining room chairs that it would be impossible to name them all, but there are a few that are particularly common. Queen Anne, Regency, Windsor, Mid-Century, Chippendale, and Ladder-back styles are all common and can frequently be found in stores (see BHG.com for examples of each). Also very popular are Parsons chairs, which are simple and streamlined and very easy to upholster or slipcover. But these aren’t the only options.
It’s not uncommon to see upholstered armchairs, club chairs and even wing chairs at either end of a dining room table. Nor is it uncommon to see upholstered chairs all around the table.
