Where Side Chairs Work Best

As an accenting piece of modern furniture, a side chair finds its home almost anywhere in yours. Near the front door, side chairs can take the place of a common bench and offer your guests a place to sit or to set their essentials. Dining rooms and kitchens are also typical spaces to find side chairs either sitting at the dining table or positioned in the breakfast nook. Without arms, side chairs can easily tuck under tables to conserve space and many are stackable too. These chairs create more seating options for decks and patios, making them a perfect choice for barbecues and outdoor dining occasions. Lastly, a good looking chair is always welcome in modern offices, be that in the home or away at a business location.

Choosing the Best Side Chairs

A modern side chair set is easy to add to your existing dining room layout and decor, however there are a few things you'll want to pay close attention to. These chairs are made in a variety of sizes and it's important to note a chair's dimensions including height, width and depth. If you need a chair to accommodate a taller dining table, you may want to consider a bar stool instead. And remember, a chair's height is measured by the height of the seat, not the height of the back. Include the seat's composition - upholstered or not - into your consideration set as well. You can then refine your choices by colors and finishes that best represent the space where you will be placing the chair.
