The notion of the formal dining room has fallen somewhat out of favor in recent years. Since kitchens are trending more open and more casual, these days eating areas tend to be a bit more relaxed in terms of style. What that means, though, is that there’s a lot more room to get creative when designing a dining set, particularly when choosing the dining chairs. HomeThangs.com has introduced a new guide dressing up a dining area by mixing and matching the chairs.
Dining room furniture is often sold as a set, with a table and an even number of matching chairs. But the best way to make an eating area feel more relaxed and personalized is to abandon these conventional matching sets. Replacing the chairs at the head and foot of the table is a simple way to do this, and makes it possible to get a slightly more formal feel while sticking with mostly casual chairs. Similarly, replacing the chairs on one side of the table with a bench can create a relaxed, homey look while enhancing the table’s seating capacity.
For a more casual, eclectic look, consider buying dining chairs individually. Mixing and matching chairs in different sizes, styles, colors, and so on can add tons of personality to the space. To keep the set from looking too mismatched, choose chairs that are (or repaint them to be) the same color; the designs of the chairs will still stand out, but feel a bit more unified. Similarly, matching chairs painted in different colors (whether in rainbow shades or with a more ombre look) can add a playful touch to a casual dining room.
