Yvonne Carter April 4, 2020 Bar Stools
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.
Do you want kitchen bar stools with backs? You'll need to determine how this style of bar stool will fit under the overhang of your kitchen island, and whether or not it will overpower your island visually. You'll also need to consider your budget. Bar stools come in a wide range of prices, from discount-store price tags to custom-designed big-ticket pieces.
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.
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.
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.
