Bar stools don’t have to be basic. There are many stylish ways to provide seating for your friends and family at a bar or counter in your home. Whether you choose one with a back or without, you can find lots of options for modern bar stools, rustic bar stools, and everything in between.
There are several different types of stools which could be used in combination with a kitchen island. Some have a classic or traditional design, with a simple wooden frame and an upholstered seat. Others are quirky with frames make of baseball bats and customized in all sorts of ways. In these cases they’re usually handcrafted and made to order which ensures that each piece is unique.
The same quirky white bar stool is featured in a modern setting, accompanying a fresh and cheerful kitchen decorated in tones of white, steel and with a few strong green and red accents.
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.
