Here's another unique DIY bar stool that might be perfect for you if you're into the industrial-chic style. Besides the wooden seat, the rest of the stool is made up of metal pipes. The materials cost more than lumber but you can't beat the unique look you get when you're finished.
Now it's time to learn how to measure for bar stools. Generally, you'll want to measure the height of a bar stool from the floor to the highest seating point. Once you have this figure, you'll need to measure from the floor to your countertop. With both of these measurements, you can determine, based on the prior chart, what stool works best for your space.
The key determining factor in what type of seating you'll have depends on your kitchen's layout. If the room is spacious, with a center island or bar, you'll have a wide range of kitchen or bar stools from which to choose. Let your decorating style lead you in your search for stools that will be the right fit. Larger eat-in kitchens may have room for both a bar and a dining table. If so, you can coordinate or complement the styles of your bar stools and chairs based on your decorating style.
If you'll use your stools where food is served, consider a low-maintenance material, such as leather, wood or metal. If you choose upholstered stools, choose a microfiber that easily wipes clean. Or, choose cushions that you can swap out. Whether the style of your kitchen is traditional, rustic or contemporary, you can find a stool that complements your look. There's no need to be too matchy-matchy. If, for example, your dining room is adjacent to your kitchen, it's not necessary to match the style of seating. And if you already have a lot of wood, try mixing it up with metal stools. Keep an open mind, and you'll find just the right look for your kitchen.
If you're looking for a bar stool that's different than all the rest, you'll want to check out this modern bar stool plan. You could use this bar stool anywhere but it makes a fantastic place to sit if you work at a standing-height desk. You'll just need some plywood and a few other materials to build this unique bar stool that can also be used as a step stool.
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The "Cheaper" leathers used in furniture are often "corrected" leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a "brand" mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
