Oly Via. Dining room. September 26th , 2017.
For a bookworm, turning the dining room into a library may prove to be a useful solution. And if you also have family members who treat your house like a hotel, install a Murphy bed within your built-ins. This also helps to alleviate the problem of finding somewhere to stuff that pesky air mattress each morning.
These days, no matter what shape or materials are used, the average dining table measures 29 to 32 inches from the floor to the top of the table.
If you are buying off the showroom floor, a good way to judge the quality of an upholstered chair is to feel under the seat. If it’s hollow, it may not be worth your money. Feel for tightly woven webbing, usually made of jute or nylon, as this is the strongest. The coil springs are held together by this webbing. Stretchy, elastic webbing is a cheaper version and won’t last as long. A quality hardwood chair frame that has been doweled small, round wooden pegs, glued and screwed into the timber joints will last a lifetime.
The most comfortable seat size is around 15 0,5 inches across the back and 18 inches across the front. The seat should be 15 to 18 inches deep. If it is too deep, it will press against the back of the legs and cause slouching.
Once you have chosen your table, you can choose your chairs. Scale is equal to comfort, and the wrong chair will be a cruel, daily reminder of that.
