Metal, wood, even leather the combination of the primary materials for industrial style are perfect for a variety of bar stools. If the style of your space happens to be leaning toward industrial already, enjoy the many bar stool options that complement that design.
In traditional or rustic interiors, however, the accent is not as much on the sophisticated looks as it is on the way an element matches everything else around it and on the way it integrates in the whole décor composition.
So the height is an important criteria when choosing a bar stool, especially if you opt for a custom countertop height. But there’s more to counter-height stools than just that. Other measurements need to be taken into consideration as well. For example, make sure you space out the stools in a comfortable manner. The space between the center of a stool to the center of the one next to it should be between 26” and 30”.
Bar stools are pretty controversial, not exactly something you’d expect for something so common and widely used. They’ve become a must-have for a lot of modern and contemporary kitchens and then of course we have the bars and man caves that make the most of them. There’s a surprisingly big number of variations related to the design and structure of the bar stool. A common debate is the choice between backless bar stools and those with backrests. Each type has its own pros and cons.
A good strategy is to pair white with more white. So if you have a kitchen with white cabinetry and a white island, then perhaps a set of white bar stools would be the right choice in such a case.
Another rustic bar stool with a more casual vibe is this one from Bella Rustica. The lively color and hand-tooled leather accent down the middle add special details to this piece, as does the nailhead trim. For those who prefer a backrest on their bar stool, this counter-height stool from Go Home has a slim profile and spare back. The more substantial wood construction makes this a good choice for a casual living space.
