The main choice for dining room chairs is wood, and you'll often find that this is the predominant choice of material for them. Oak is a very common one because it is a classic style of wood which is very easy to care for and is very durable and strong so that you can be confident your chair will last you as lifetime. This oak is often grown specifically for furniture making so is grown to be strong and top quality for an attractive finish. The same goes for other cuts of wood such as pine or mahogany. Pine is a very cheap kind of wood which can be great for dining rooms because the soft colour of pine is very attractive. Mahogany is at the other end of the scale and is very expensive and stylish, and if you have an old fashioned style dining room that is styled with a period look then the luscious dark wood of mahogany is definitely the thing you're looking for as your chairs will look very good in it.
For those looking for something a little more low key, there's always estate sales and yard sales. These are great places to find hidden treasures. Do some searching and you can find some classic fixeruppers. Many chairs can be sanded and painted over; you can add slips or reupholster the seat covers. Additionally, you could add throw pillows for a more cozy, comfortable look. Consider painting a set of similar chairs different colors for a more compelling look. Try sticking to primary colors for a Mondrian-inspired look; or if you prefer one color, try gradations, paint the chairs different shades to achieve a Pantone-ish gradient. Or, if you've found an assortment of mismatched chairs, paint them one uniform color to give the dining room a unified look; each chair retains its distinctive shape and personality, adding depth to the room. For an assortment of mix matched chairs, such as low lying stools, high back chairs etc, stick to a close range of shades. The hodge podge already makes your chairs stand out, so you want to keep things together by choosing one shade, for example, dark walnut or light blonde.
Some of the chairs are available in modern, contemporary and colonial styles apart from traditional ones. They come with square backs and straight legs. Also before you buy any of these chairs, you must make sure that you have taken the measurements of room so that you can buy chairs with the right height and width. The room should not look congested and occupied and you can also take the measurements of the dining table so that the chairs that you select can be pulled slightly under the table.
