If natural, earthy tones speak to you in general, then keep this look going in your bar stool choice. There are plenty of beautiful neutral bar stools out there.and you’ll know that, with its being neutral and all, you will love it in your home.
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.
The last element to take into consideration before purchasing kitchen counter stools is the style. Some designs have seat back, others don’t, some have armrests as opposed to others which are simple plus other distinctions such as between swivel and non-swivel stools, upholstered and non-upholstered models, adjustable and stationery designs, etc.
Other times, black is chosen because it allows a certain feature to blend in. The dark blue kitchen island featured here supports this idea. The black bar stools fit extremely well in the décor. They blend in but also stand out a little bit because of the color differences.
You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality.
Multiple options for swiveling bar stools exist they can swivel out from attachment to the counter itself (a space-saving function) or the bar stool’s seat can swivel on top of its own frame. Keep in mind arm rests if you opt for swiveling; if you have arm rests on your bar stool, they should be lower than your counter to keep from destroying the counter’s edge over time.
