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.
Bar stools generally come in three different heights. The first type is the short bar stool. In this category you’ll find the table height stools that are 16-23” high and are suitable for 28-30” high surfaces. They can be a good alternative to regular chairs.
Some bar stool designs are more suitable for small spaces than others. A good example is the Lucy counter stool which, with its sleek and versatile design can seamlessly integrate in small kitchens as well as in other areas where space is limited.
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.
