1 Evaluate the size and shape

 

Round, square or extensible table? Snack top or counter? Choosing modern chairs of the right size and/or height and combining them with the design of the table is crucial to delimiting spaces, moving freely and creating an intimate and welcoming atmosphere, worthy of a royal banquet.

 

If you usually eat alone or share meals with a few friends, you may also decide to add chairs, perhaps alternating different shapes, only when guests arrive: thanks to their silhouettes, which are simple but never understated, modern kitchen chairs can also be stacked. The tidiness will be appreciated!

2 Consider the upholstery

 

When it comes to the materials, different types of modern chairs are available to fit in perfectly with the kitchen furniture. In general, the rule is that the structure, seat and back must all have the same upholstery, thereby ensuring a minimal and contemporary style: should it be fabric or Plexiglas? In addition to your taste, the choice should also reflect how the chair will be used.

 

If, for example, you like to experiment at the hob and often bake, our advice is to choose a material that is hard-wearing and, above all, easy to clean. On the other hand, if your kitchen is always kept neat and tidy, you may like to opt for trendy, modern chairs in coloured velvet.
