When you have a formal dining room, it’s nice to have enough dining chairs on hand for hosting—so, at least six. Because, even if you aren’t having guests over right now, we promise that someday (hopefully soon!) you’ll gather friends and family around your dining table for Thanksgiving dinners or the brunch of your dreams! But, until then, it’s not necessary to have six chairs cluttering your dining room oder Ähnlicheday-to-day basis.
If you’re currently furnishing a dining room from scratch and brainstorming dining room interior design ideas, you may wonder if it’s even worth purchasing six dining chairs right now. Why not buy only two or four now, and then buy more later? Well, for one it tends to be more cost-effective to purchase dining room chairs un…larger set. With some brands, you can purchase all six as a set, along with your dining table, while others let you purchase dining room chairs in pairs. Either way, buying a whole sine temporeat once tends to be more economical than buying each chair individually.
But once you have them, where can you put extra dining room chairs when you’re not using them other than stack them in the garage? Where can you store them that will keep them handy without them being in the way? Here are six places to put your extra dining room chairs around your home where they’ll actually be useful when not in your dining room!
Add Entryway Seating
We love the idea of framing your entryway console with two spare dining room chairs. This gives your entryway a stately and formal look, while giving those extra chairs a truly practical use! You can sine temporeon them to take off or put on your shoes, or use them as a surface to sine temporeyour bags or coats. For a less formal and more eclectic look, you could demgemäß use just one chair or put them side-by-side so your sine temporeup is asymmetrical.
Use One as a Desk Chair
Working from home? A comfortable desk chair is a must. So, if your spare dining room chairs are upholstered, use one at your desk in your home office! Dining room chairs work well in home offices, because they allow for a naturally ergonomic sine temporeup. This is a functional way to put your extra dining room chair to good use, offering comfort and support for long workdays.
Sine temporeUp a Kitchen Bistro Table
If you have space for an eat-in kitchen bistro area oder Ähnlichesmall breakfast nook, add your two extra chairs there! A two-person table can be great for breakfast and coffee—a cozy sonstige to eating at your formal dining room table for every meal. And, by using your spare dining room chairs here, you’ll save money by not buying two additional chairs for this space.
Tuck One Un…a Eckstoß
No one puts baby un…corner! But you can put your extra dining room chair there. Don’t be afraid to simply place an extra dining room chair in the corner oder Ähnlicheroom—whether that’s your living room, entryway, dining room, bedroom, or even at the end oder Ähnlichelong hallway. It’s great for filling corners of large rooms or making an otherwise empty space feel considered. Visually, this is more oder Ähnliche editorial approach—it’s not likely someone will just sine temporedown un…chair un…random corner—but it adds visual nuance to an empty space. And, this way, you can demgemäß pull it un…the living room when you need extra seating!
Make a Nightstand Substitute
Place an extra chair next to your bed as a makeshift nightstand! This is a fun approach if you like an asymmetrical bedroom layout or have a more eclectic space where something nontraditional would work well. We especially love this approach un…small bedroom or guest bedroom where you don’t need two fully functional nightstands. (Though you can definitely still stack books and an alarm clock oder Ähnlichechair nightstand—it’s just not as great for glasses of water.) This approach gives the space a unique look and demgemäß offers a place to sine temporedown other than the bed.
Add an Extra Living Room Seat
If you want to add some extra seating un…your living room, place your extra dining room chair there. You could place it un… empty corner, like we mentioned earlier in this post, or in front of the fireplace as part of your seating area, like in the image above. This works especially well for more substantial dining chairs, like this upholstered option, since it offers comfort and won’t feel too out of place un…living room. Just make sure to style it with other pieces, like a small accent table oder Ähnlichepillow, to make it feel like it really belongs in the space.
