Wood, plastic, fiberglass. What your bar stool seat is made of can be anything, really. Not that this fact makes your decision any easier. But if you’re stuck, think about practicality if you want to be able to wipe it clean, something non-upholstered might be the way to go.
A lot of kitchens include islands which double as bars or breakfast tables. But deciding whether or not you want a kitchen island is not the only difficult part. Once that is done you need to focus on choosing the right kitchen counter stools so that they coordinate well with the décor and design while also being comfortable and functional.
For a more unusual twist, trumpet-shaped wooden bar stools (and matching bistro-height table) are an option. The shape is enhanced by the footrail that is only on one side which helps keep the profile slim. They’re great for a casual kitchen or bar area.
Hairpin legs and a live edge seat highlight this rustic bar stool. From the collection of UMA, it’s definitely a casual piece of furniture. From shiny and luxe, to rustic and recycled, there’s a bar stool that’s perfect for your kitchen or entertaining area. Don’t just choose a basic stool you can highlight your style and decor preferences with the right set.
When you need a nice contemporary stool for your family’s bar height counter, you need to think comfortable as well as durable. The metal legs on these stools will take anything you give them while the cushioned seats create an inviting scene.
Even though the stools with backs win when it comes to comfort, there’s more to consider when choosing a style for a particular space. Backless stools have their charm too. For instance, a lot of people prefer them for the simple fact that they look sleek and beautiful and that they don’t clutter the space visually. Backless bar stools are also practical in the sense that you can tuck them under the counter to save space. So now that you know a little about both types and that you’ve also seen some wonderful designs, which one do you prefer?
