In order to feel comfortable, the correct and appropriate dimensions are very important. Good dining chairs should have a certain width, seat depth and seat height. Starting from a table height of 75 centimeters, which most of the dining chairs have, a seat should be height of 46-47 centimeters. Wide range of dining chairs can have slight variations in these dimensions, depending on the style and manufacturer.
The seat width of a dining room chair ranges from 45 to 60 centimeters. The seat width should fit the table length, while a standard dimension of the dining chairs is 70 centimeters. The height of the dining chairs’ back can be very different. The extent of the chair’s back ranges from 80 to over 100 centimeters, again depending on style and production. Upholstered dining chairs are often slightly higher in the back than the classic wooden chairs.
What is the point of tasty food if you do not sit well? At a convivial evening with the best friends, this is very important besides a good glass of wine, a refined pasta recipe and the interesting stories. For such an evening, good dining chairs are simply more than necessary if you want to have a pleasant evening.
A dining chair appears to be at first glance, a relatively simple piece of furniture with four legs – a seat of just half a square meter. On the contrary – dining chairs have to be a comfortable support and they must simultaneously be harmonized to table and room, according to proportions. This is not an easy task at all, so many people often seek for professional help.
Based on an average table height of 75 cm, dining chairs have a seat height of about 46 to 47cm. At this seat height, you feel comfortable when you sit down at the table. One can put arms on the tabletop and relax or easily use a knife and fork – which is one of the aspects for the determining whether the table is the right for you – at least if one is not an average basketball player. The pillow or the surface of the chair can be of various materials, but have in mind that on a completely straight seat, you would always slip forward. Thus, you will not feel totally comfortable and safe.
Anyway, whatever you choose just make sure that the chairs are blended with the surroundings. If you consider, let’s say, more elegant style, we recommend white dining chairs.
