Yvonne Carter April 1, 2020 Bar Stools
Last, but certainly not least—how many bar stools should you buy? You'll base your answer on the size of your kitchen and island, the size of the stools themselves, the size of your family and your entertaining style.
Whether you're outfitting your kitchen or your basement bar, finding the right counter or bar stool can be tough. You want something that's high-quality and durable, so that it can seat a revolving door of visiting friends and family members, and also impeccably designed to match the aesthetic of your home. Take our quiz below to figure out exactly what type of bar stool is right for you.
Here's a free bar stool plan that builds a traditional bar stool with a round seat and two levels of footrests. The finished chair is 33-inches tall, making it a great pick for going under a countertop. This free plan is extremely detailed, giving lots of information on what you need before you get started, the cuts you need to make, assembly, and finishing.
Another option for an eat-in kitchen is a banquette. This built-in piece of furniture can turn a corner of a large kitchen into a cozy eating nook. You can have a banquette along just one side of your table, or three sides, depending on your kitchen's design. You can also create the look of a banquette by sliding at least one bench under a side of your kitchen table.
If you'll just be using the stools for a few drinks and a little conversation, comfort isn't as big of a factor, so you can focus on style. Most of the time, you'll see the back of your bar stools, so choose something that has a rear view you like. Retro bar stools in brightly colored vinyl will give your home bar a whimsical feel — like a burger joint or an ice cream parlor. Wood bar stools can feel traditional or casual, depending on the type of wood and whether or not the seat is upholstered. Sleek metal bar stools with low backs can turn your home bar into a swanky hangout.
You enjoy the finer things in life, and bar stools are no exception. You want something with visual interest, quality craftsmanship and elegant details. It's important for every piece to match the rest of your home decor for a cohesive look that's as functional as it is ornate.
