Do you want to make a design statement or do you want more discreet seating? Do you want to match or layer materials in your kitchen? And do the stools you really want work in the space you have? Your answers can help you determine the style and height of stool that will ultimately work in your kitchen. If your stools are in a busy or narrow corridor or you don't want a tall profile that overwhelms your island, choose backless seating that can easily tuck under and away. But if you love to entertain and want something more lounge-worthy, choose a broad-backed stool with deep seating.
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.
Think of the design of the bar stools you'll be choosing. How tall do you want them to be? Do you prefer a bar stool with a back? Would you like bar stools that swivel? A swivel top can be particularly nice if your kitchen is part of a large space in which you entertain, as they will allow your guests (and you) to turn and join conversations behind you in the room.
The shape and material of the base of a stool can change everything. Try the industrial or modern country contrast of a sleek metal base with a wood seat. Wood legs with a tweedy cloth seat feel chic and mid-century modern, in the same way wood plays up the natural textural elegance of leather and bonded leather. Bringing dark wood-and-leather stools into sleek, tile-and-steel contemporary space to add a sense of texture and elements-interplay is also in keeping with the new trend of “honest” natural materials design.
Your bar stool spacing is really important because it also determines how many bar stools you will need. Too much or too little space makes for awkward scenarios for your guests, so do them a solid and break out the tape measure.
Ask yourself similar questions when choosing kitchen chairs. Think about what meals will be eaten in your kitchen. Will these meals be more casual, with most of your entertaining done in a formal dining room? Do you have children (who can be messy)? Do you want these chairs to match your kitchen table, complement it or provide contrast? You have many choices, from contemporary metal to chairs with soft, fabric-covered cushions for seats.
