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.
It’s hard to pinpoint the detail that makes the Portland stool so interesting. Some would say it’s the swirly shape but other would argue it’s the simplicity of the design and the beauty of solid steel frame. Either way, this black bar stool definitely knows how to stand out, even if the colors may not help.
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.
You can take advantage of a neutral color such as black to emphasize other details in a bar stool’s design. For example, these ones have carved out backrests that give them a very stylish and elegant look and they all serve as focal points for the kitchen.
Once you got all measurements right, you need to decide how many stools you need. Figuring out the number is easy. You need to provide adequate spacing for people to eat, drink or socialize. A distance of around 26”-30” between the centers of the bar stools should be ideal.
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.
