Maggie Lopez March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
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.
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.
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.
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.
What material do you want your bar stools to be made of? For a traditional look, choose oak or other wood and stain or seal it to suit your tastes. Sleek lines in painted wood or metal will complement a contemporary kitchen. Or you can create an eclectic look by choosing bar stools in a contrasting style or color to the rest of your kitchen's decor. You'll also want to consider whether you want cushioned seats on your barstools. Fabric cushions add comfort, but they can be a hassle to clean after food spills. You can choose leather or vinyl instead. If you have children, you'll want your stools, including the seats, to be durable. A bar stool with a curved wooden seat can be just as comfortable—if not more so—than a cushioned seat.
You pride yourself on the effortless and slightly eclectic decoration of your home. You can mix the modern with the traditional for a look that's uniquely your own. You don't want anything over-the-top; sleek construction and easy styling are a must for you.
