Another option is to keep the chairs you have, but change the way they look by putting a cover over them. Gone are the days of big bulky covers that look as if you have tossed a garbage bag over your chairs. Today's covers for dining room chairs have a much more sleek and refined look and many have adjustments and ties so they will look like they were custom made for your chair. If you have the time and are good at sewing, you can even make some that are customized to your dining chairs. By being able to work with a pattern at home, and with the chairs, you can create a perfect fit.
Dining chairs are always more likely to break as compared to dining tables. After more than a year of handling and use, the chairs naturally suffer abrasions, scratches and material outwear. Even if you do not have the budget to buy new dining chairs every time; refurnishing old dining chairs with applicable stuff and hardware is a good idea. New seat covers, fabric and other accessories for refurbishing dining chairs are readily available in the market.
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.
