Stylish Dining Seats For Australian Homes

In today’s world, mix-and-match inspiration is in vogue alongside traditional decor styling. Whatever your taste, you will always be on trend with Amart Furniture dining seats designed for every type of modern Australian family.

What are different types of dining seat options?

Perfect dining seating isn’t a one-size-fits-all equation in today’s busy world where every household member has their own schedule and dietary preferences. It can be tricky to get the balance right for a comfortable dining space, so here are some dining seat ideas and options to get you started.

Measure your dining area: Assess the size of your dining room. Use a measuring tape to accurately determine how much space you have to work with.

Size up the space: Select your table size; Either a 4 seater, 6 seater, 8 seater, or a 10 seater dining table. Work out how many chairs can fit around the table, leaving around 16cm (6 inches) between each chair. Allow 90cm (36 inches) if possible between the chair and a wall or other furniture such as buffet tables, pantry storage or display cabinets.

Choose your dining chair style: Ask yourself some questions. Do you prefer simple or elaborate chairs? What is the overall look you are wanting to achieve? Do you prefer wood, leather, or upholstered fabric chairs?

Consider mixing and matching: Don’t be afraid to go for an eclectic approach where everyone gets their favourite style chair. There’s lots to choose from at Amart.

Consider interesting furniture options: Choices include a dining table with bench seats, fashionable seat covers, dining stools, or indoor/outdoor dining sets.

Do a quality check: Visit your nearest Amart furniture store and try out your favourite dining room chairs in person for the perfect fit. Sit down, shift around, lean back and enjoy!

Should dining chairs have arms?

Dining seats with arms, or small armchairs used in the dining room, can be perfect in larger dining rooms where there’s more room. If yours is a smaller space, it may be better to prioritise comfort of the dining chair seat and back, and choose dining seats without arms.

Dining room chairs with arms look great in formal and functional dining rooms. There’s no doubt that chairs with arms can provide support, comfort and relaxation to people sitting on them while eating.

How do you match a dining table and dining seats?

The choices are all yours with close to 140 dining seat options to choose from, online or in-store at your nearest Amart. The dining table will serve as your anchor point, so start from there and work outwards. Ideas include:

  • Contrast matching end chairs and side chairs
  • Mix materials and textures, such as a wooden table with white chairs
  • Soften the seats with throws and cushions
  • Choose interesting detailing or sculptural chair legs
  • Consider upholstered armchair-style dining seating for a classic look
  • Create a summery vibe with rattan or wicker chairs

How do you choose the right seating for a dining room?

Go with a dining set theme according to colour, chair height, or seat cover print. In tight spaces, you can introduce informal dining room appeal with a side counter table and dining bench seat. Choose tables and chairs with a common theme or element such as colour, undertone or finish to ensure they look good together.

However, you don’t need to choose furniture that shares all the same elements, unless you want to buy a matching set. Comfort is key for dining chairs that stand the test of time and allow you to spend quality time with family and friends.
