Oly Via. Dining room. September 27th , 2017.
Growing up in the land of Southern Hospitality, I thought I would never in my life propose the idea of repurposing the dining room. Having an eat-in kitchen, I like many others can count on two hands the number of times we use the dining room each year. Why deem a room necessary when its only useful 10 days out of 365.
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.
The most comfortable seat height for a dining chair is when there is 10 to 12 inches between the top of the seat and the top of the dining table. If your chair is 18 to 20 inches from the floor to the top of the seat, it will fit well under a standard table.
For an instant playroom, bring in a couple of storage units for organization. Choose a table that isn’t too delicate and looks better after a few beatings. Remember the worn look is on-trend these days. When company comes for dinner, cover table with a pretty tablecloth and scrub crayon markings from the wall. Last, add ambiance. Everything looks better in candlelight.
Generally, the length of time any one person can sit comfortably on a dining chair is three to four hours less if the chair has no padding. Your chairs may already come with a fixed upholstered seat cushion; if not, having a detachable cushion made is not difficult. The insert should be firm and generous, as this not only will enhance the structure of the cushion but will keep your friends and family from visiting the chiropractor.
