Most kitchens, besides being part of an open floor plan, also feature a bar area. It’s a space that presents several advantages. For example, it’s a multifunctional space. You can use it as a work surface but also as a breakfast area or work space. Moreover, it’s perfect for those that also use the kitchen as a social space and for entertainment. But a bar means nothing without the right bar stools.
There are numerous designs, shapes, sizes and colors to choose from. Before making a decision, there are several factors to take into consideration. For example, the bar stools should be both stylish and comfortable. If you choose one in the detriment of the other you’ll always regret it. Then you should also think whether you want the bar stools to match the bar and the rest of the kitchen décor or if you want them to be bold and to stand out. It’s easy to use bar stools as focal points. You just need to find an eye-catching design or to opt for bold and vibrant colors.
The bar stools also need to be sturdy and strong. Metal frames and structures work best. The actual design need to be carefully chosen. Depending on the style you have chosen for the décor and on the atmosphere you are trying to create, you can either opt for something minimalist and simple, for something with clean and straight lines, something with delicate lines and curved features or for something with a striking design and a unique look.
