Family dinner night is a great idea for busy families. Experts encourage families to spend time together at the dinner table. Dinner together is a great bonding time for parents and their children. In addition, children learn manners and social skills from eating at the family dinner table. However, all the yummy food can end up on your chairs. Protecting kitchen chairs from spilt foods can make dinner less stressful.
Vinyl Chair Covers
Creating your own vinyl chair covers is easy. Simply measure the chair seat, and then cut a vinyl or plastic piece of the same size to go over the chair cushion. While this is not fancy, it will protect the cloth on your kitchen chairs. Use Velcro to secure the plastic or vinyl to your chairs. The covers can be removed after dinner.
Slip covers can be made with a simple fabric and pattern from the Internet or a sewing or craft book. Draw a design of the chair on paper before trying to find a pattern. Make sure you choose the correct pattern and colour if the covers will permanently stay on the chair. Pick a non-slip sturdy fabric that can take a lot of wear and tear. Denim and corduroy are great choices.
Buy Your Own Seat Covers
Measure your kitchen chair and draw the chair design on paper so you can match the seat cover to your chair. There are various online sites, such as Amazon, Bizrate, and Nextag, which sell kitchen chair seat covers. Also check with local furniture stores for seat covers that will fit your chairs.
Pillow cases can be used as a quick and effective chair cover. The larger the pillow case, the better. A large pillow case will fit a smaller or medium size kitchen chair. This is a great temporary way to protect kitchen chairs from children's dinner messes. Simply slip the pillow case over the back of the chair and pull it over the seat.
