I have 6 chairs. My kitchen and dining is 1 area. There are skylights and windows as well.

What colors are nearby? Are you trying to match anything? Will you have a rug?

The chair fabric need to be chosen in context. In interiors, you need 1-3 star/focal/prominent objects ("A" players) per room, like a fabulous chandelier or fireplace or incredible rug or bold draperies, then 30% "B" players and the balance "C" - neutral/background.

To upholster chairs, first decide where your "A" players are, then go from there. Right now your chairs are wearing fabric which makes them "C" players...which is fine if you already have other stars. But if most of your color/interest in the dining room needs to come from the chairs, the fabric choice will be very different.

My room color is Maison Blanche. My granite pic is posted as well. I don't like curtains as I love natural light. Also have not thought about a rug. I didn't think it was an option since the kitchen and dining is 1 area. My granite has gray, bright orange, light orange in it. I would love recommendations on a chandelier too. I will post more pics.

You definitely can have a rug for just the dining area. I like rug there as long as you don't have messy eaters (toddlers etc.) at the table. Perfectly fine for kitchen to be bare boards, or have a little kitchen mat, and dining to have a nice area rug.

Sounds like your kitchen is light and bright. Finding a fun print with similar colors as your counters would be nice. Look for Crypton fabric in a great print it holds up to kids and pets. http://www.cryptonfabric.com/
