The chair itself has to be in comparative proportion to your room you're placing it in. If you've got a large area, with heavy furniture, then a compact, thin-armed chair will appear delicate and out of place. If you've got a small room, then an armchair that's got thick arms and curved features will overpower all of your furniture. Either way, a room will appear and feel off-balance.
When choosing armchairs for small spaces you need to ensure the size of those armchairs don't dominate the overall proportions of the room they are intended for. It's not just the size either, but the style that you need to be careful of. When choosing armchairs for small spaces, ensure you choose armchairs with thin arms, freestanding legs rather than legs that are hidden by flaps of upholstery. And when it is a choice between curves and straight lines, forget about the curves - when you want to fit armchairs for small spaces, always go for clean straight lines. You may even consider choosing armchairs with no arms at all - that is bound to save you some space, albeit not a great deal but it will also trick the eye into believing there's more than there is.
Now mark and cut out the slots which house the back panel. These are 165mm long, 13mm wide, and run at an angel of 82° to the top edges of the side panels. Use the methods detailed above to mark and cut them accurately.
In a larger place this is not as important, however you should still get the measurements of any armchairs for sale to ensure that you'll be able to leave enough room round the piece for flow and safety.
A great rule of thumb is the fact that the bigger your space, the 'heavier' your armchair could be (and the other way round). A study covered with walls of book shelves and wood panels can accommodate a heavy, dominating chair. Look at armchairs for sale who have rich detailing and more classic design. For a more modern space, especially a smaller space, look for free standing legs and slimmer arm rests, and straight, clean lines.
Conservatories are difficult to contend with, furniture-wise. Do you make the conservatory a secondary summer dining area, a bright working space, or a living room without a TV?
