Priscilla Thompson March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
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.
Shape choices also abound. Some people prefer the look and feel of a classic, retro, rounded stool seat, while other like the solidity of a square or rectangle. Have you considered a super-comfortable curved, padded seat style? Backless, winged, or traditional chair back? How about the very updated, low-profile curved seats that are crafted of beautifully polished wood or acrylic?
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.
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).
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.
Here's a lower bar stool that still makes an impact with its chunky legs and square seat. A footrest is also included, so you still have the comfort of having somewhere to put your feet. It's a fairly simple plan, so you can build a few over a weekend.
