Maggie Lopez March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
If you're looking to update your kitchen without renovating or spending big, barstools are the perfect place to start—and after some deep digging, we've found that it's possible to find great barstools (for the most part) under $100 that don't look cheap. This way, you'll have room in your budget to buy the two or four chairs your kitchen counter calls for. The key is to search for classic, understated silhouettes and quality materials that will let the countertop or pendant lights take center stage. Affordable furniture retailers like IKEA, Amazon, Wayfair, Target, and CB2 all boast gorgeous (and budget-friendly) barstools to complete your kitchen counter look without breaking the bank. Splurge on stunning fixtures or a marble benchtop, and save on these simple but serviceable chairs. The search is over: These are the 40 best cheap barstools on the internet.
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?
For starters, consider the decor and style of your kitchen. Is it modern or traditional? Do you want bar stools that will blend with or complement the room's other furnishings. Alternatively, would you prefer a style, material or color that will provide a contrast or a pop of color?
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.
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.
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.
