  • High Back Dining Chairs Can Be Most Comfortable
  • Did Anyone Mention Extra Cushioning?
  • Material Matters
  • Colour and Theme - The final choice


Follow these points and be ready to offer your loved ones comfort and style all at one place - your precious dining area.


1. First Take Measurements


Choosing a dining chair design without considering the size of your dining area is the worst move to start with.

Even the most exquisite piece would look bad if it is stuffed up in a room, while an ordinary dining chair can beautifully revamp your dining area if placed right.

You cannot choose four-wide chairs when you are a family of six; therefore, always keep in mind how many dining chairs you need before selecting any design.


The ultimate seating comfort lies in having one chair per family member.

The average dining chair width ranges from 40 to 50cm, but if you are looking for more comfortable dining chairs, you must go for the ones having a width in the 50 - 63 cm range.

Never style chairs side by side and leave at least 15cm space between each chair so that everyone will have enough room to move in and out of the chair without having to disturb others.


If you have a smaller dining area, but you need to incorporate many chairs, always opt for armless dining chairs to save up space.

Armless dining chairs give a clean look and require less space as compared to the other heavy designs.

2. Selecting The Dining Chair Frame


When it comes to the dining chair frame, comfort is a highly subjective word.

A person who loves dining chairs with arms would never feel comfortable on an armless dining chair, no matter how posh the design is and vice versa.


You may ask your family's input before adding to the cart.

Most people prefer dining chairs with arms and rate them more comfortable because it provides an extra elbow rest.

Further frame features depend upon your requirements.


For instance, if you have more child members than adults, you may go for the dining chair frame with a leg support handle beneath the chair for added comfort.

Similarly, padded dining chairs work best for those who use their dining area for office work and have to sit on the chair for long hours.


It can always be wise to invest in a dining chair made up of a solid wood frame for extra durability.

The dining chair is a one-time investment, so it shouldn't start looking worn out in just a couple of months which happens in hollow wood frames and low-quality dining chairs.
