Choosing Chairs
Establish a budget
Determine the budget you have to work with. This helps to narrow your search.
Measure your space
Plan out where the chairs will be placed and measure the space to be sure they will fit. Tape off the space as a visual guide.
Choose the right fabric
What will you be using the chair for? If you have kids or pets, go with family-friendly and easy-to-clean fabrics like vinyl.
Pick the right color
Use a color wheel or chart to decide on complementary colors for a themed look or make a statement with contrasting colors.
Educate yourself
Before buying chairs, read as much as you can about the different styles, as there are plenty to choose from.
