Wood Chair

Updated on September 3, 2010

A simple Wood chair can add elegance and style to any home, they may be a far cry from standard metal or chrome chairs but their wooden grain and fine varnished finish is a welcome asset to any home. But before you decide on one you may well need to consider the area in which you will have your wooden chair weather it be for inside or outside purposes. There are a range of contemporary and modern styles one can choose from to suite your own personal style and character so when choosing wooden chairs for you home make sure you will be looking at your chair in the same way as when you first purchased it and the reasons why you bought it in the first place. As well as elegance the color you choose will also have a effect on your own personal taste and character and will show through to your visitors. It maybe a good idea to use a natural grain polish to bring out the look of the chair, and coat it with a protective plastic coating for longevity.

Types Of Wooden Chairs

Most wooden chairs are there to compliment the living or dinning room area of the home, you can get many styles of wooden chairs from wood folding chairs to wood rocking chairs even a wood office chair to show your workmates you have a little style. Most wood chairs are simply there to show a statement and to complement the home but if are planning on using your wooden chairs for practical purposes then you might just consider ones that can be used for a certain area say a wood kitchen chair or high chair for the dinning room, or a wood desk chair for the kids room or a fine wood rocking chair for the lounge with arm rests for extra comfort. Or even a wood folding chair for convenience for those out door BBQ s and picnics.

Surrounding Area

If you have a house that is fashioned with a lot of wood than you may well choose to buy a set of wood dinning chairs to suite the surrounding area and to complement the rest of the existing wood in your dinning room. Or if you already have any rooms that need wooden chairs to match with already existing wood, than a simple wooden chair will do wonders to add style to any room in the house. Wooden chairs far out weigh modern chairs in terms of looks and style, people tend to look at them as if they are in a trance ,hypnotized by the grain and fine polished finished that these chairs portray.

Practical Purposes

Decide what purpose your chair will be used for if it is in a dinning room than you may want to consider a arm rest with back padding, or if you are deciding to get one for the lounge area than one that is fully padded to add extra comfort for those long sittings is a wise decision, or what about one that is fully padded that also reclines for that out door or patio area these will need to hold up to outside conditions as well as look great. If you choose to have a wood chair for outside purposes than having it stained and varnished to protect it from wear and tear form the elements would be a good idea, or placing it under a sheltered area or having a covering for when it is not in use is also a wise idea. What ever you decide the choice is totally up to you , but make sure you consider how your wood chair will look around the surrounding area to compliment any other furniture you may have, so choose wisely for yourself as well as your home and you will have your very own wood chair that will look great for years to come.

      Yes i agree, there is a relationship with wood and nature and the two would compliment each other very well.

      Wooden chairs are also a great way to add an organic feel to your room without overtly adding plants or flowers.
