How To | Choosing Your Dining Room Table and Chairs

The style of your new dining room table and chairs will define the look of your dining area, so it is important that you choose suitable and attractive furniture items.

Matching and coordinating colours is a crucial design decision. A walnut table paired with chairs with cherry coloured legs could really clash and create an inharmonious design. The style of each piece should be taken into consideration as well. You can mix and match different eras and trends to form a balanced look. For example, a classic wood dining table can be beautifully paired with modern, sculptural dining chairs.

Another very critical aspect to make note of is the measurement of each piece. Your table should be long enough to comfortably fit all of your chairs, and the chairs shouldn’t have seats that are too high for the table. A good rule to follow is to leave 12 inches or 31 centimetres of leg room between the seats of the chairs to the bottom of the tabletop.

No matter how you want to coordinate your dining room furniture, Interior Secrets has the furniture and design inspiration to help you create the dining room of your dreams. Here are some examples:
