Sally Hill March 30, 2020 Bar Stools
Do you want to make a design statement or do you want more discreet seating? Do you want to match or layer materials in your kitchen? And do the stools you really want work in the space you have? Your answers can help you determine the style and height of stool that will ultimately work in your kitchen. If your stools are in a busy or narrow corridor or you don't want a tall profile that overwhelms your island, choose backless seating that can easily tuck under and away. But if you love to entertain and want something more lounge-worthy, choose a broad-backed stool with deep seating.
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.
This type of barstool has a seat mounted on a hydraulic column. At the touch of a lever, you can change the seat height, a plus for smaller children or when you need to accommodate guests of varying heights.
Life's a beach, and you want to keep it that way, both inside and outside your home. Bamboo detailing and rattan or wicker backing make up the comfortable seating that will feel right at home in your seaside retreat (even if you don't live near the coast).
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.
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.
