Sally Hill 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.
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.
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.
You may love to invite friends for martinis, or you may be having over the guys for the big game. You might need kitchen stools, so you can use a counter as a breakfast bar. Or you may be adding a dining area to a part of your house you didn't think was going to be usable before. If you love to entertain, you know you need a home bar. How far you take it is up to you. The home bar furniture you choose should reflect your style and show your guests that they are welcome in your home. Here are tips to help you buy the right home bar furniture for you.
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.
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.
