Wood­en chairs for the kitchen have been deserved­ly the best pur­chase for the din­ing area for many years. Price, design and uphol­stery options form a vari­ety of mod­els and allow you to choose fur­ni­ture suit­able for inte­ri­ors in dif­fer­ent styles.Wooden chairs for the kitchen

Advantages of wooden chairs — classic is always in fashion

Think­ing about choos­ing a high-qual­i­ty and com­fort­able set for eat­ing in the kitchen, many peo­ple imag­ine a large din­ing table with com­fort­able wood­en chairs.

Tra­di­tion­al wood­en fur­ni­ture is high-sta­tus, envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly and lasts for many years.

How to choose a wooden chair

Choos­ing from a vari­ety of mod­els of wood­en chairs, you need to answer a few ques­tions:

  1. Does the fur­ni­ture match the style of the kitchen?
  2. How does it com­pare with the size of the room? In a large kitchen or a ded­i­cat­ed din­ing area, mas­sive din­ing groups are appro­pri­ate; for a small room, it is bet­ter to pur­chase light sta­tion­ary or fold­ing wood­en chairs.
  3. What kind of floor­ing is used? If there is a risk of dam­age to the coat­ing when mov­ing fur­ni­ture, it is bet­ter to choose mod­els with spe­cial incon­spic­u­ous stick­ers on the legs.
  4. Is there a pos­si­bil­i­ty of water and splash­es on the fur­ni­ture dur­ing cook­ing? In such an area, it is bet­ter to install prac­ti­cal fur­ni­ture in soft col­ors with wash­able uphol­stery.


The design of wood­en chairs is based on sev­er­al har­mo­nious­ly inter­con­nect­ed ele­ments:

Seat. In the clas­sic ver­sion, the wood­en chair has a hard seat, in the mod­ern ver­sion, soft uphol­stery is allowed.
Back. There can be many options for the back­rest — depend­ing on the rel­a­tive posi­tion of the upper and low­er hor­i­zon­tal lin­tels and ver­ti­cal slats. Kitchen chairs with a wood­en back look dif­fer­ent, because the shape of the back can be straight, slight­ly curved — anatom­i­cal, fig­ured, inclined, etc.
Legs. The front and rear legs set the height at which the chair should be com­fort­able to sit on. The shape and sup­port char­ac­ter­is­tics of the rear legs are respon­si­ble for the sta­bil­i­ty of the entire struc­ture.
Tsar­gi. Tsar­gi — con­nect­ing cross­bars under the seat. There are front, rear and side.

wood quality

The high­est qual­i­ty is con­sid­ered nat­ur­al wood — sol­id wood. This is a sol­id and eco-friend­ly mate­r­i­al with a beau­ti­ful, pro­nounced tex­ture.

Now chairs are often made from sol­id birch, pine, oak, euca­lyp­tus, hevea. Mod­els from the mas­sif of a beech dif­fer in high qual­i­ty. This valu­able hard­wood is very aes­thet­ic, durable and strong.

A more afford­able wood option is veneer. The veneer is also made from nat­ur­al wood, but it is much thin­ner than sol­id wood, so it needs to be glued. Veneer prod­ucts com­bine cost-effec­tive­ness and long ser­vice life.

There is a com­bined mate­r­i­al of the chair frame — the array is cov­ered with veneer made of wood of the same species, such as birch. For greater prac­ti­cal­i­ty and dura­bil­i­ty, the tree is cov­ered with paint, enam­el, stain or var­nish.

Style and design

Wood­en chairs are the smartest choice for a clas­sic or neo­clas­si­cal room.

It would be appro­pri­ate to look at light, ele­gant wood­en fur­ni­ture in the inte­ri­or of Scan­di­na­vian and retro style, as well as Provence and min­i­mal­ism styles.

Mas­sive sim­ple mod­els are suit­able for coun­try-style inte­ri­ors.

Among the mod­ern design solu­tions are bar stools that go well with a kitchen island or bar counter in a mod­ern kitchen. Fash­ion­able and durable mod­els have a com­bined frame mate­r­i­al con­sist­ing of wood and met­al.

Upholstery and filler

The uphol­stery of wood­en chairs can be from the fol­low­ing mate­ri­als:

  • tex­tiles — velor, tapes­try, jacquard, microfiber, mat­ting, che­nille, etc.;
  • leather;
  • eco-leather;
  • faux leather and suede.

Mod­ern uphol­stery of kitchen fur­ni­ture is durable, does not stretch, is water­proof, wear-resis­tant, easy to clean.

Even tex­tile uphol­stery should not become an obsta­cle to pur­chase — due to poly­mer spray­ing or spe­cial fab­ric treat­ment, it does not lose its appear­ance after clean­ing.

The seat and back of the din­ing chair can be uphol­stered for added com­fort.

The filler for this kitchen fur­ni­ture can be both syn­thet­ic mate­ri­als — sheet foam rub­ber, syn­thet­ic win­ter­iz­er, bat­ting, latex — and nat­ur­al mate­ri­als: algae, horse­hair, coconut fiber.

How to take care of wood furniture

Wood­en fur­ni­ture is unpre­ten­tious in care, but does not tol­er­ate exces­sive mois­ture.

  1. The backs and legs should be wiped with a slight­ly damp soft cloth, and then dried with a dry cloth.
  2. Unvar­nished wood can only be cleaned with a dry soft cloth.
  3. Lac­quer sur­faces can be treat­ed with indus­tri­al pol­ish­es.
  4. Scratch­es can be removed by pol­ish­ing with a cloth, as well as using mas­tic and fur­ni­ture wax.
  5. Hard-to-remove whitish spots remain on wood­en fur­ni­ture if you put a mug of hot drink on it with­out a spe­cial stand. Such stains are removed with a mix­ture of alco­hol and veg­etable oil in a ratio of 1: 1, and then wiped with a dry cloth.
  6. Gen­uine and arti­fi­cial leather uphol­stery can be cleaned with deter­gent and water.
  7. If fur­ni­ture with fab­ric seat uphol­stery is cho­sen for the kitchen, it would be bet­ter to use spe­cial remov­able cov­ers that can be dry-cleaned or washed.

Kitchen chairs made of wood will please the own­ers for a long time with their dura­bil­i­ty, strength and appear­ance, if you fol­low the man­u­fac­tur­er’s rec­om­men­da­tions for the oper­a­tion and care of the fur­ni­ture.
