If you have a dining table and dining chairs set that have a very distinctive look, you may have realized you can change up the look of the dining table by adding a tablecloth, napkins and other accents, but the chairs still don't match. What if you have to replace your dining room table altogether? While you may be able to find the same wood color, if the accented look of the table clashes with the designs and upholstery on the chairs, it just won't work. So what's the solution? There are a few of them.
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.
Exceptional chairs require the special table. Currently the most appreciated by designers are the glass dining tables, which are universal and style enhancing. While choosing an appropriate table to your chairs set take care of the finish material: legs (eventually edges too) should be made of the same material which is used in chairs. In case you would like to mix the materials of chairs and table, remember that wood works good with mat metal or brass but with chrome - not necessarily. You can also freely connect the bright wood with both aluminium and chrome.
