If you are thinking of doing the job yourself you need to have the know-how of the process to get it done as well as have the time to put into the project of taking apart the old chairs and replacing the cloth, and likely the padding underneath, with new materials. There are plenty of books out there on how to do this process and you may even be able to find a video or two online that will walk you through the process of reupholstering your dining chairs.
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.
Covers for dining chairs have a lot of benefits. First, they not only change the look of the chair underneath, but also protect it, putting another layer between guests and your furniture. Secondly, if you like to change your table settings seasonally, or even more often, you can also make sets of covers for dining room chairs to go with each and every theme and season change that you want to celebrate. Your guests will marvel when every time they come to your home it looks as if you have completely renovated and purchased a whole new room of dining furniture to fit the mood.
