Priscilla Thompson March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
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?
Here's a free bar stool plan that builds a traditional bar stool with a round seat and two levels of footrests. The finished chair is 33-inches tall, making it a great pick for going under a countertop. This free plan is extremely detailed, giving lots of information on what you need before you get started, the cuts you need to make, assembly, and finishing.
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 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.
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.
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?
