Wooden dining chairs are not just pleasing to the eye, they are durable, reliable, elegant, and are considered to be one of the most versatile options on the market.

Have a Planned Budget and Stick to It

You want to be able to enjoy your dining room when you have guests over or host family get-togethers, not feel guilty because you may have overspent. .
Check for Quality Craftsmanship
We guarantee the highest quality craftsmanship with all of our products here at Dining and Stools, however, if you shop elsewhere, avoid simply choosing chairs because of low price. Check for quality. Move the chair around a bit, sit on it and see if it has real structure. Verify the surface of the furniture; you want it to be smooth and beautiful. You should also check if it is comfortable to sit on. A good wooden dining chair should be in one piece, so avoid anything that glued or fastened together. If you do fall completely in love with a wooden chair that is pieced together, check the joints and make sure that the structure of the chair is sound and the craftsmanship is top of the line.
Consider Your Dining Room Size
The sizeof your dining room is another crucial thing you should consider. You don’t want to buy chairs for your dining set only to find out when you get them home that they make the set seem too big or small for the available space. When you choose your chairs, you want to make sure that there will be enough room around the table for guests to walk around comfortably or sit at the table and not have to smash themselves in so others can walk behind them. It’s a good idea to know the dimensions of your dining room when you come in so we can help you find the perfect set to meet your needs.
Choose the Correct Type of Wood
Wooden dining chairs are manufactured from different types of hardwoods such as mahogany, oak, beech, cherry and hard maple, to softwoods like cedar, pine and redwood. Choosing a wood type that complements not only your dining room table but the other wood used in your dining room is a move any smart interior decorator would make. If you have children, you may want to consider chairs made from hardwood. These chairs are definitely stronger, more durable, and better able to handle the wear and tear of an active family with young ones.
Choosing a Wood Finish
The primary purpose of a wood finish is to make the chair last longer, prevent it from damage, and improve its beauty. Choose a dining room chair with the type of wood finish that corresponds with your taste and compliments your existing table. If you are a green earth advocate, you can choose chairs with natural finishes. If you want long lasting protection, you can select a varnish, stain or dyed wood. Wood finishes made with wax, oil and wood preservers are equally as good.
