Bar stools are a practical way to add style and functionality to an open floor plan, a kitchen, a basement and a variety of other spaces. However, choosing the right type of bar stool is a challenging experience that has to do with a variety of details.
Then there’s also the bar height stools. They work well with bars and counter tops that are between 41” and 43” tall. They are typically used in restaurants and bars and they are taller than the average dining chair. There’s also a fourth category of extra tall bar stools which suit counters and bars that are 44” to 47” tall.
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.
Black is the go-to color when nothing else seems to fit or when you’re trying to create a timeless and simple design without standing out. The Cut stool by Gudmundur Ludvik is a safe choice although it does have plenty of character. It has a frame made of aluminum which makes it lightweight and easy to operate.
When both the bar stools and the bar are black, the result can turn out quite unimpressive. However, that’s not the case here because the stools definitely stand out. That’s due to their ornate design and the drama they add to the décor.
