Even though over the past couple of months, we have been entertaining less than usual, a dining table and dining room chairs are important. A dining room table has an important role to play in our homes, it is the place we enjoy family meals, do homework, play board games and make memories.
When it comes to selecting dining room chairs, the sky is the limit. Different wood options, different styles and designs, thousands of upholstery choices….. all the options can easily become overwhelming.

We have put together a list of things to consider before purchasing your dining room chairs.

 The dining room chairs in relation to your dining room table

When shopping for your perfect dining room chairs, start with your dining room table. It is important to consider the height of your dining room table. When sitting on your dining room chair you should still have sufficient room between the top of your legs and the bottom of your dining room table.  When purchasing your dining room chairs, take the height of the chair into account.

 The style of your dining chair

 With or without armrest?

A dining room chairis usually available with or without armrests. A choice that you should consider carefully! A dining room chair with armrestsis automatically higher than a dining room chair without armrests. Take this into account if you want to easily slide the chairs under the dining room table.
We offer a wide range of carver dining chairs at all of our Leather Gallery Showrooms. A carver dining chair refers to a dining chair with armrests. Carver dining chairs are predominantly found at the head of your dining room table – it is believed that the name is linked to the idea that the head of your family is normally the ‘meat carver’ and sits at the head of the table.

 Upholstery type

So many dining room chairs, so many upholstery options. A dining room chair with the upholstery that you like may not always be practical. Think carefully about what you find important. For example, if you have children, then a dining room chair that is easy to clean and keep is a real plus.
