Yasmin Collins March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
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.
A beautiful bar stool isn't that useful use if it doesn't fit under your counter or bar. So start by measuring your bar or counter's height. The key is to account for legroom when choosing a size.
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.
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.
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.
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.
