Metal has many benefits as a bar stool medium. It is durable, easy to clean, and stylishly versatile. Metal bar stools also tend to be visually lighter-weight than other types of stools, which is definitely something to keep in mind.
Another type is the counter-height stool which is the one we’re more interested in. These stools are smaller than the ones used in bars and restaurants and they’re the best for kitchen islands. They measure between 24” and 27” in height. Then there’s also the bar-height stool which is the same one you see in bars. These can be used for standard built-in bars and have a height of 28” to 33”. The fourth type is the extra tall stool which is somewhere between 33” and 36” tall. In its case the name pretty much speaks for itself.
You can’t go wrong with metal and wood. Whether your kitchen is a rustic beauty or an industrial haven, these bar stools will bring it all your elements together perfectly.
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.
