Years ago, formal dining rooms were an absolute necessity in many homes as it was the center place for entertaining friends and family. Today, the trends have changed drastically, with increasingly casual open-concept combined dining room-living room-kitchens as a popular design. If you do have a dining room and wish to give it a less formal, more youthful vibe that still feels cool and gathered, blending dining room seats is the ideal way to accomplish that! Here’s the solution to the problem:
- SAME COLOR, DIFFERENT CHAIRS:
If you wish to have a curated vibe then have different chairs all in the same color. In my experience, buying a bunch of chairs from my relatives or auctions, painting them is the best option. Always prefer bright color to paint the different chairs to keep the look alive.
- SAME CHAIRS, DIFFERENT COLORS:
The best way to bring a sense of casual chic is to use the same chair but in different, modern colors. A fairly easy thing to do if you buy a brand-new set of chairs, particularly if they’re painted wood, painted steel, or have a plastic or fabric seat.
- RETRO + MODERN TOUCH:
Another way to make an impression of your dining room is to blend the styles of chairs you place around the table. You could create lot of visual interest by doing this. Try some curvy mid-century modern inspired chairs!
- BENCH IT!
Whenever you need a bit of change, have the courage to take a step forward and replace chairs with bench. Not always, the home looks lovely with a formal touch, this a great option for a very informal feel. The bench provides you with the opportunity to being able to squeeze in more people at your table. Don’t forget to throw a blanket as it not only makes sitting more comfortably, they’re also a perfect way to add style and color!
