Adirondack Chair: Straight Versus Curved.

adirondack chair curved vs straight


Owning a home is a dream of many, whether single or a couple and nesting a few beautiful children. With owning a home comes very many choices that one has to make. From the color of the house, how the yard will look like, if it’s a home that is not starting out from the ground, how you’re going to renovate it to fit your requirements.

Among these very many choices that you have to make s the choice of furniture that is going to decorate your place. For areas like the living room, this takes some doing as you have to coordinate with your drapes and the colors of the wall. Sometimes it’s just a bit too much and you have to take a break away from it all.

Taking a break will usually mean going out into the patio to enjoy the best that fresh air has to give to you. Aside from just a break and an opportunity to gain perspective from things, you also get the chance to unwind and just be. Don’t underrate how important that is.

However, out here, you also have to make a choice as to what you want. Luckily, the choices here are much simpler as these are simple furniture that will last you years before needing replacement. This simplifies it but also places some real pressure on you to make the right choice. Good thing is once you get it right, this is an area you never have to think about for years to come.

Ah yes, here comes a choice that every home owner has to make. Should you get an Adirondack chair that has a straight back, or one that has a curved back? Well, each has its own merits and demerits.

Historically, these chairs have always been constructed with straight backs. These types of chair are preferred for their simplicity and ease of production. If you have always been handy with tools, then this might be a project that you can take on yourself while you build your house. It’s also a good way to make use of all the spare wood that would otherwise be wasted when the house is done.

On the other hand, a curved back chair requires some bit more planning and machining to achieve. To achieve that perfect curved, a lot of planning has to be put into it. And it’s all because the Adirondack is not built using a single piece of wood, but several slats nailed to a frame.

If you’re the hands-on type, then this will require some extra planning from you. It will also require you to have a bit more skill than the usual DIY types as those curves are not easy to achieve. This will definitely make things a bit more difficult if you are a perfectionist who wants the curves to be as beautiful as the NBC logo.

The thing is though, it’s the aesthetics that will have more of a say than the amount of work put into it. A curved back is generally more elegant than a straight back.
