Generally, rattan dining chair also is known as the wicker chair. Wicker is a type of rigid material made of weaved plant stalks or branches, most often used for baskets of furniture. The most common wicker furniture is those made of rattan, and that kind of furniture has long been globally popular over the past decades.
Even in this modern interior design era, wicker rattan dining chairs have remained popular. Combined with the modern shades, no one can resist rattan dining chairs to make their dining room looks comfortable and fabulous. Rattan dining chairs bring modern vibes and classic ethnic style in a single case.
Rattan wicker dining chairs will complement nearly any light and casual interior style, including a farmhouse, Scandinavian, country, to coastal style. Their natural color and appearance will add the cozy and comfortable vibes to your kitchen and dining room.
Rattan dining room chairs is a perfect starting point for a dining room remodelling project. You can change the look of your dining room simply by painting your rattan dining chairs in any color you desire. It’s pretty simple and easy. All you need is an interior-exterior spray paint (matte or glossy, depends on the resulting look you desire) and 220-grit sandpaper.
The first step is you need to give the wicker chairs a light sanding, if yours have a clear top coat, or have been painted previously. The sanding process will help the paint adhere. Next step, spay-paint the top of the piece, then let them dry completely (it usually takes about an hour). Then flip those rattan chairs over and do the same on the underside. Repeat this process as many time as needed tp coat all the hidden areas. And now you have a set of “brand-new” rattan wicker dining chairs.
To match your dining room general design, you need to choose a specific style of the rattan chairs. There are a lot of wicker chairs to choose, such as rattan side dining room chairs, rattan parsons chairs, wicker arm chairs, and more. You can also use upholstery or padded cushions for comfort and ergonomy.
The advantages of having rattan dining room chairs are that the material is very flexible and have a good endurance. Rattan also looks lighter and more casual than wood or iron.
