If you’ve ever agonized over choosing the right bar stool for your space, you’re not alone. It’s a seemingly simple concept.with about a million variables that could take your overall design down different pathways.
The design of this kitchen island evenly divides the space between the three Twist swivel stools. Also, the design of the stools allows them to have adjustable height and this pretty much solves both problems we’ve discussed so far. But when the island has an undulating design such as in this case, the irregular shape makes it difficult to evenly distribute the stools and to offer each one the same type of comfort.
Similarly, these spare metal bar stools are topped with a wooden seat that has splashes of color that also evoke a recycled feel. Whether or not you use them with the matching bar, they will inject some subtle color into your kitchen or bar area.
So the height is an important criteria when choosing a bar stool, especially if you opt for a custom countertop height. But there’s more to counter-height stools than just that. Other measurements need to be taken into consideration as well. For example, make sure you space out the stools in a comfortable manner. The space between the center of a stool to the center of the one next to it should be between 26” and 30”.
We’re now going to step away from all the different styles and talk a little about suspended bar stools. They don’t exactly fit in a particular style because they can have all sorts of designs and yet their defining feature will be the fact that they’re suspended. It’s a characteristic that can be applied to modern and contemporary furniture but also to traditional and even rustic or industrial pieces. One of the defining characteristics of these pieces is the fact they they are space-saving and very functional.
Wicker is usually used to manufacture outdoor furniture. However, it can be just as beautiful and charming when used indoors. We have prepared a selection of wicker bar and kitchen island stools which bring a very nice rustic but also tropical feel into the room.
The list of black bar stools continues with a design that’s simple and contemporary. Called Churchill, this piece is a creation of Uhuru Design and ever since it appeared back in 2012 it has become a stylish addition to contemporary homes that balance style and function in a natural way.
The balance in this kitchen is the result of great cooperation between all the materials, finishes and colors. The white bar stools add soft curves to the décor while the rest of the furniture maintains clean lines. The rounded seats on these bar stools are definitely just what the space needed to feel welcoming and cozy. This proves that shape is often more powerful than color when it comes to creating a unique interior design.
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.
The curves of the Onda barstool give it a very sophisticated look and that’s because the overall design is very simple. The white version is particularly attractive but the stool comes in a variety of other colors.
The Jailhouse Back Wood Seat Swivel Stool featured here would be a good option in that case. Their design makes them coordinate well with farmhouse kitchens. Make sure you measure everything correctly. You need to measure the height of the counter from the floor to the underside. This will help you determine the proper bar stool height so it’s best to measure twice just to make sure.
After going through two styles dominated by rough designs and rather bland colors we now redirect our attention towards the mid-century modern designs which incorporate a little bit more colors, bold shades as well as more delicate and subtle looks. They maintain a timeless design and have a classical allure but they also tend to be more graphical and modern. When talking about bar stools, this translates as sleek and simplistic creations often featuring dynamic colors in order to become a focal point in the overall décor.
Bar stools don’t have to be basic. There are many stylish ways to provide seating for your friends and family at a bar or counter in your home. Whether you choose one with a back or without, you can find lots of options for modern bar stools, rustic bar stools, and everything in between.
