Although the dining room has lost its traditional majesty, it is still a fundamental room in the house. Today it is increasingly preferred to create a unique space between kitchen and living room, so the dining room is often not used to eat, but this does not mean that you do not have to furnish it!
Therefore, after seeing how to choose the dining table, it's time to deal with chairs. Also in this case the watchword is functionality: Chairs must be comfortable and then beautiful. Let’s see together how to combine these two aspects that do not always get along!
The standard dimensions of a chair are about 45 cm from the floor, 40 cm depth and 40/45 width, while the seatback must be at least 8 cm.
Taking note of these fundamental sizes, we start with a question: Who will really seat on our chairs?
If you are used to receiving guests and organizing dinners among friends in your home, the chair must be EXTRA-comfortable! Whatever the style, whatever the material, once you have finished the dinner with your tablemates they will only think “but how much comfortable are there chairs?!”
The answer is: As you prefer! Combined chairs contribute to create an overall effect, a harmonious and continuative space, in particular, just in the case of open space, industrial style tables and chairs blend in the spirit of the open chair and their presence is not too impressive.
If instead you want to play with styles and create a special space that can highlight the various elements of the room, opt for chairs that are not combined. This does not mean that there will be no harmony, on the contrary, we must be very careful to create the right options: If you have chosen an eccentric table make sure that chairs are discreet, or vice versa, if there are impressive it is preferable that the table goes into the background.
Another further good alternative that is trendy in recent times, are the mismatched chairs. In this way your personal taste will undoubtedly emerge from the décor, and you will also able to choose chairs without too many worries: It is important that you like it!
Obviously, you can mix up styles: Vintage, industrial, but also design or simple wooden chairs for school and the game is done. You can also mix up outdoor and interior chairs around your table, if you like it. In doing so, your dining room will be original and inimitable without a shadow of a doubt!
It is necessary that they are at the height of the table, it's up to you whether to choose a rise to make them sit at the same table of adults, or get a table for children and create a miniature of your dining table.
