Choosing The Right Chair Cushions Hard wooden kitchen and dining room chairs beg to be softened with chair cushions, but choosing chair cushions that don’t overwhelm your kitchen set isn’t easy. You can pick up a set of chair cushions for $5 at the local dollar store – but will they fit into your room’s décor – or detract from your style? Face it – you get what you pay for. Cheap chair cushions have thinner padding, less durable fabric and shoddy workmanship. If you take the trouble to choose well-made, quality chair cushions for your kitchen or dining room set, you’ll be rewarded with a set that lasts longer, is far more comfortable and requires less care in the long run. What To Look For When Choosing Chair Cushions When choosing chair cushions for wooden chairs, take these things into account. - Pick the right size for the seat.
If the cushion is too small, it will be uncomfortable. If it’s too large, it will look bulky – and the edges of the chair seat will add to the wear on the fabric and cut the life of your cushions. - Make sure that any ties are sewn into the seam of the cushion. Chair ties take a lot of pulling and tugging when people sit and stand. If the ties are sewn into the seam, they’re far more likely to stay attached.
