Yvonne Carter March 30, 2020 Bar Stools
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.
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.
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.
Last, but certainly not least—how many bar stools should you buy? You'll base your answer on the size of your kitchen and island, the size of the stools themselves, the size of your family and your entertaining style.
Think of the design of the bar stools you'll be choosing. How tall do you want them to be? Do you prefer a bar stool with a back? Would you like bar stools that swivel? A swivel top can be particularly nice if your kitchen is part of a large space in which you entertain, as they will allow your guests (and you) to turn and join conversations behind you in the room.
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The "Cheaper" leathers used in furniture are often "corrected" leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a "brand" mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
