Baby High Chairs

Nowadays, more and more parents are opting to take wooden high chairs for their new-born. The times have gone when parents used to buy those plastic, bright colored chairs or the chrome plated highs. Actually, the mindset is changing and the parents now know that the wooden chairs go well with their other furniture stuff, the pieces they had chosen after so much of mind work.

Who can deny the point that wooden furniture is stylish and on the other hand, metal ones go incongruous with the other wooden items you have chosen. Yes, metal chairs have one advantage i.e. they are foldable and hence, portable. But, isn’t it that you don’t find them mixing well in the room or the storage places?

When you go for the common furniture, you seem to keep some or the other point in your mind and mind it, wooden items will fit them positively. The normal selections for dining room furniture are Oak, Maple and Cherry. The high chairs come good in these types and their finish job is great, it matches other furniture. No matter you like modern or old fashioned items, wooden ones will always go well.

Now, coming to the babies, their high chairs must be wooden, the specialists say that. Along with this, there are some other points to be kept in mind. The high chair must have single-handed operable front tray release, which will help you get the baby in and out of it easily.

One more point to be kept in mind is that the workmanship needs to be there. A wooden item is durable not only because of the wood used, but also due to the workmanship. Those of high quality will have their joints in natural joints, like dovetail ones. These are much better than the screwed ones. A five strap harness is ideal for keeping the baby annexed to the chair, until, of course, you want him out. A high chair must also be stable.

The wooden chairs have some problems though. One problem is of shifting the wooden chairs over the carpeted areas, which is comparatively very easy with the plastic/metal chairs. Also, the height adjustment feature misses out in the wooden chairs, available again in the plastic and metal ones.

Wooden high chairs come up in varieties with more styles and configurations. Lots of models are available in the market. In order to get a good bargain, do some homework. Prepare lists and then select the chair models.
