If not, usually you risk getting bar stools that are too high for your kitchen counter. For example, although these classic Tolix stools complement this island really well, they seem a bit too high for it. This means you’d be sacrificing comfort.
For a color palette to be harmonious, there’s no need to match everything in an obvious way. These bar stools coordinate really well with the kitchen island and the whole décor in general. The seat is a combination of white and gray which are also the colors used throughout the room.
When you’ve got little people around the house, you really need a bar stool that will make things easy and safe for them. These metal stools provide a step up for little legs and a high back for safe sitting. Plus those microfiber seats will be easy for you to clean at the end of the day.
If your bar stool area is nearby other chairs, you might consider coordinating the seating throughout the space. This isn’t to say you should run out to the nearest furniture store and buy a set of identical-except-for-height chairs and stools. But you could consider keeping one style element similar for consistency, such as the wicker seats in this photo.
Counter-height tables are less common and their style is more casual. This allows them to create a more relaxed atmosphere which could be good for certain types of spaces. Also, they work well in small spaces since they appears to be taking less space because of their height and shape. You can use them in the kitchen where they would double as prep spaces.
Upholstered seats are, as a general rule, certainly more comfortable than their non-padded counterparts. But there are pros and cons when considering upholstery on a seat that sees more than its fair share of staining potential.
