Bard of your home? How about trying a new set of dining chairs? With Christmas coming up, it's a good time to make a few investments around the house. With this in mind, we've compiled a list of things to consider when buying a dining chair. After all, the chairs you choose will be with you for years to come, so it's worth taking the time to ensure that they're both timeless and physically enduring.
It goes without saying that looks matter, so it's important to pick something that won't date quickly. Something voguish and unorthodox may seem like a good idea now but elegance and understatement are key to any kitchen victory. You can't go far wrong with a black satin finish, though if you're seeking something bolder, pillar-box reds and zesty greens will add a burst of character without appearing garish. Moreover, if you fancy something with a bit of history behind it, then you'll be pleased to hear that there's a number of retro designs to choose from. Eames-style dining chairs replicate the works of their namesake with startling accuracy, enabling you to customise your home as you like it.
Comfort is another important factor. Like the sofa, the dining chair is intended for use over long periods so it pays to pick out something that's both ample and accommodating. The size of the backrest plays a vital role in determining how cosy your seat is, so don't be afraid to go large if relaxation is the order of the day. Similarly, rich upholstery is conducive to a more immersive experience. Thickly padded real leather seats exude nothing but indulgence, and are characterised by peerless quality and ergonomic shapes.
Space plays an important role in determining how many chairs you can fit into a given area. Somewhat inevitably, chairs with armrests take up more room than those without, so be sure to bear this in mind if you're after the full armchair experience. If visual space is at a premium then take a look at some Acrylic Perspex Dining Chairs. At once transparent and hard-wearing, they offer all the support of regular models whilst appearing to take up half the room.
More modern dining chairs are often equipped with additional features, and these are similarly worth a look if you're seeking something with an edge. If you tend to throw your fair share of dinner parties then you may prefer to choose something with adjustable components. Gas lift dining chairs allow you to change the position of your seat, fusing the innovative appeal of contemporary bar furniture with the innate warmth of more traditional options.
If you're still struggling to come to a decision then not to worry. There's nothing quite like seeing things for yourself, which is why it's worth popping in to Atlantic Shopping's showroom with one of the largest ranges of bar stools in the UK. Located in Central Birmingham, it's just a short drive away for many of you and showcases a vast range of items for your perusal. All things considered, you're left with just one question - what are you waiting for?
