The right seating for your dining room can be hard to find, especially if you’re limited in the space you have available. This is why more people are ditching the dining chair in favour of dining stools instead.
Not only is a stool a space saving design, it can be versatile, comfortable and oh so stylish.
How to choose the right dining stool?
When it comes to finding a dining stool to suit your home, there are few things that need to be considered.
Style - Are you looking for a seating option to match the décor of your whole home, do you want it to stand out and be a bit of a feature? Knowing the style you’re going for will make it easier to pick the material and design of your dining stool.
Dining style –Do you dine at a traditional table, a tall one, or perhaps at the kitchen counter? Is your table tall and narrow, or low and large? If you already have a dining table or surface in mind or at home, it’s important to make sure that your new stools will be an appropriate height. A good rule of thumb is to look for a stool that is between 20-30cm lower than the dining surface you will be using, This will let people of most heights be able to comfortable sit at your table.
Comfort – If you’re planning on having guests over or like the idea of long meals, then comfort is absolutely key. Stools are available in a huge range of materials and styles including padded seating and backed or backless designs. You want something that is going to make your guests want to stay seated at the table.
Material – Mealtimes can be messy, especially if the kids are around, so keep this in mind when choosing the material of your dining stool. While upholstered fabrics can be scotch guarded, materials such as wood and metal are a lot easier to keep clean.
