Barbara Stewart March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
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.
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.
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.
Few pieces of furniture are more frustrating to spend money on than items that come in multiples. Sure, it's easy to justify a large one-off splurge on a quality sofa or a statement chandelier, but furniture sets like barstools quickly add up. One $300 barstool might seem reasonable, but when you consider that you'll need a matching set of four, it suddenly becomes a costly buy.
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.
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.
