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.
Here's another unique DIY bar stool that might be perfect for you if you're into the industrial-chic style. Besides the wooden seat, the rest of the stool is made up of metal pipes. The materials cost more than lumber but you can't beat the unique look you get when you're finished.
There's more to ensuring your stool makes sense in your space than height. You'll also want to consider bar stool sizes. Ideally, it's good to have enough distance between each stool to accommodate counter height stool dimensions and also bar height stool dimensions.
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.
We recommend measuring the distance from the floor to the underside of your counter before ordering so you can narrow your product search to either bar height or counter height models.
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.
