Sally Hill March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
When choosing bar stools, consider a few things: Do you want chairs with backs? How tall do they need to be? How many do you need or have room for? Do you want the stools to swivel? Do you want a style that blends with your kitchen's decor, or something that contrasts? What size will you need to ensure the look is proportional to your bar and the rest of the room?
Of course your home has entertaining space. Of course you love having people over. Of course you want everyone to be happy, sitting in blissfully in your great-looking party space. So, get your bar stool game on. When choosing a bar stool, comfort matters as much as the style. On a bar stool you're sitting higher, but you're there to relax. So the cushioning, seat shape and seat design all matter, as does the position of a great footrest, or foot bar. A metal plate on a wood footrest is also ideal, for saving wear and tear on the stool.
Bar stools and counter stools instantly call friends and family over to your entertaining space. Your first thought will probably be a matched set that features matching seat materials and frame styles (say, dark wood with a bourbon-colored seat). That's always a timeless option when you're designing a entertaining space. It's classic and easy on the eye, which is why we love that look. But there are other design concepts worth considering; we'll share a few here.
Shape choices also abound. Some people prefer the look and feel of a classic, retro, rounded stool seat, while other like the solidity of a square or rectangle. Have you considered a super-comfortable curved, padded seat style? Backless, winged, or traditional chair back? How about the very updated, low-profile curved seats that are crafted of beautifully polished wood or acrylic?
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.
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.
