As the beating heart of most homes, the kitchen is usually the go-to room favored by family and friends. It's the busy hub of homework, gourmet meals, unexpected visitors, and late-night chats. So, when you're choosing furnishings like bar stools or bar chairs, matching your existing decor and creating the right atmosphere is vitally important.
Think about colors and materials, as well as design and durability. Choose from our different seat designs, bar stools with high backs, swivel or stationary, to suit your needs. They are all features that will help to make your kitchen the coziest room in the house. Take a little time to choose an option that matches your lifestyle, will last the test of time, and everyone will enjoy using.
Consider the layout of your room—the very first thing is to work out how many stools you will need by measuring your space's width and height. Swivel and bar stools with high-backs will need more space between them, and rounded seats need slightly less than other shapes. Think about whether you want seating at either end of your counter and if you also want some spare for larger get-togethers.
The comfort factor of seat height—our bar stools come in all shapes, sizes, and heights. For the ultimate in comfort, measure from the ground to both the top and underside of your counter. Choose a stool height allowing for at least 25cm between the cushion top and the smaller measurement. Shorter bar chairs are typically better suited for the home and higher ones for commercial bars. For a family, look for designs offering a double footrest or height-adjustable seats.
Harmonize with style and upholstery—the fun part is finding something that enhances your space's overall look and style. Backless, low back and round seat designs are minimalist and natural. Bar stools with high backs or armrests are more classical and can be better if people will be sitting for long periods. Cushioning and fabric upholstery needs to coordinate and embellish. Be brave and experiment with materials and color for some bold design choices.
