There are so many
shapes, styles and price points in seating options for the Dining area. What will work best for your
lifestyle? Find out how to narrow down the choices and find the best
dining chairs for your home.
When searching for dining seating you have two main considerations. First, the style and finish of the dining table you'll be coordinating the chairs with, and second, your budget.
Style and finish is more fun than the budget, so we'll talk about that. (The budget is something that needs to be addressed, so make that decision before you start to shop.)

What is the style of your dining table?
Is it contemporary, with straight lines, glass top and black finish? Or perhaps you favor more of a country casual decor, and your dining table is a natural maple with an oval shape and curved legs.
The dining seating you select should follow the same overall decor style as the table, although they don't have to follow the exact same finish as the table.
For example, our country casual dining table described above could be accompanied with wood dining chairs that are finished in a dark green stain. They might have chair pads them, but that is a matter of preference.
As long as your overall color palette includes shades of medium green, these selections could look great.
Or, you might have a glass topped dining table with an iron base. Your dining room chairs could be an iron and wood combination, for example, if you wanted to create a more formal look.
If your dining table has lot of curve to it, there should be at least some curve to the style of dining seating as well. Same goes for mostly straight lines in the dining table. Keep the overall look consistent.
Another consideration in your search for great dining room chairs is the question of fabric on the chair.
You may want a fabric seat, some fabric on the back, or possibly a chair that is totally fabric, such as a Parsons Chair. Parsons style are great look in a traditional type dining room and can complement different styles and finishes of tables.
As an added note: you may want to consider Slipcovers if your existing dining chairs are still in good condition but you need a change in the room's decor.
Okay, now that you are full of knowledge about the different aspects of chairs for the dining area, it's time to find what will work for your home, decor and budget!
