Change Your Cabinet Color To A Lighter Shade

If you have dark cabinets in your kitchen, it cannot be easy to find wood dining chairs that will complement, and have a solid wood frame.

You want your chairs to match the rest of the decor…but not in an "all in white" kind of way!

A great trick in achieving this look is painting over your dark cabinets with a lighter shade of the same hue.


For example, if you have dark brown cabinets, paint them a lighter shade of brown!

A creamy gold is another color that would work well with this look without being too matchy-matchy with your decor.

Here are some tips on how to choose which dining chairs will work best with your current decor!


Why Should You Do This?

Painting over your cabinets with a lighter paint color will open up a space and create a fresh look.

Likewise, the dining chairs you choose should fit this change in style by being either white or cream themselves to contrast.

If you go with this look, you can buy the Chatfield black, modern dining chair to complete the look.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many dining chairs do I need?

If you're having a dining room party, it's best to have six or eight available chairs. If you live in a small home and only cook and eat by yourself, four is enough!


How much should my budget be for purchasing new chairs?

Expensive doesn't always mean that something will look good with your dining room furniture and decor.

If you find chairs that are the perfect color and functional, don't pass up on them because they're a low price!


Should my dining chair be comfortable?

Yes! After all, chairs are your seats when eating.

So you want to make sure that they're high-end and made of really soft materials like velvet or leather.


How many dining chairs should I have?

You need at least two, but four or six is optimal for hosting parties and dinners with friends and family!


What do you put underneath your dining chair to protect the floor?

A dining chair mat is a great choice to protect your floor from scratches and scuff marks.

They come in a variety of colors that will match any decor!


What do I need to know about dining room chairs?

Many times, you'll see chairs that look big and sturdy, but when they arrive at your door, you'll realize they're tiny and not what you wanted!


Last Thoughts

It's been a long time coming, but you've finally decided to take on that daunting task of redesigning your dining room.

You're at the point where you know what furniture pieces are going into the space, and now it's up to you to decide which colors will be used in this area.


One thing we recommend is taking cues from what's already there; if your chairs have a certain color palette (e.g., pink), then it would make sense for your walls and cabinets to follow suit!

This way, all of your hard work designing new furnishings won't go unnoticed when people come over for dinner or any other occasion!
