Being able to decorate your home with a coastal theme is a dream come true because it literally makes you feel like you’re on a vacation at the beach every single day. However, pulling off this style isn’t always easy, and you might sometimes feel the need for some inspiration. We totally get that and, if you’re opting for a tall kitchen island or a bar, then we have some stunning coastal bar stool ideas in store for you.

Coastal Bar Stool

The concept behind decorating in coastal style is pretty simple. You have to create a mixture between casual and comfortable furniture pieces, create a breezy vibe by using light colors and plenty of white and blue, and add plenty of props that are beach-themed. As far as coastal chairs are concerned, we’ve got you covered!

While not much in this photo is coastal-themed, the chairs would 100 percent match a beach vibe. Here, they are paired with dark wood floor boards in a kitchen that’s mostly decorated in traditional farmhouse style. However, the combination between rattan seating and wooden legs make these perfect for a beach-themed home.

These chairs are basically a larger version of the ones we showed you areas, with higher back seats and a stunning combination between a distressed-looking type of wood and rattan seating. Here, they are paired with a marble countertop but could easily work behind a bar made from wood veneer.

When you live by the coast, one of the best things is that you can pair coastal outdoor furniture with the actual view. Here, we see a large flipped kitchen window that connects to the patio where a few coastal-themed white wooden chairs compliments the improvised bar. The view to the left is certainly a bonus that puts you further in that dreamy beach sunset mood.

The combination between light blue and white make this kitchen perfectly aligned with our theme for today. The dark brown bar stools are compatible with the kitchen island countertop of a matching color, creating unity and tranquility across the entire setup. If properly coated, these chairs would be perfect for outdoor use as well.

This has to be one of our favorite setups, not only for the gorgeous coastal bar stool, but also due to the muted colors that perfectly match the style in question. Everything about this setup is full of ocean vibes: from the compass tile to the ship lap.

When thinking about the coast, a lot of people picture simplicity, but it doesn’t always have to be that way (and this picture is proof of that). Combining coastal colors with glam accents (such as the gold finish of the chair’s frame and legs), this inviting setup is perfect for serving drinks in this large sitting area.

One of the best things about choosing a coastal theme for your home is the fact that you can combine elements from other styles to create a totally unique and unexpected setup. Here, we see a kitchen decorated with white cabinets, marble countertops, and bar stools with upholstery colors that stay true to the coastal style.

With white being the predominant (non)color of choice, here we see just how dreamy a beach-style setup can be. The kitchen brings forth stainless steel appliances that come in contrast with the marble countertops and white kitchen cabinets, with everything being brought together by the rattan bar stools.

This has to be one of our most favorite setups, as every detail was carefully thought-of and chosen to match the coastal theme. The dark wooden floors create a beautiful contrast with the ship-themed glass tile backsplash, while the coastal stools with white and blue striped upholstery are just perfect.

Decorated in true coastal colors and reminiscent of the Greek Island of Santorini (where white and blue are the predominant colors), this kitchen is just a dream place! It comes with blue backsplash, white cabinets, and a kitchen island plus bar stool with matching tones of white and blue.

Counter & Bar Stool Set

Now that we got some inspo, let’s take a look at some actual coastal chairs, starting with a set composed of a solid wood counter with a wall-hugging design and four distressed blue chairs that have the perfect beach-themed color. The removable backing offers more possibilities in terms of coastal setup, and the price is just right.

When you want to stay true to the coastal style and decorate using mostly white furniture, the Juelz stool will fit right in with your plans. Its gentle hues and durable hardwood and wood composite construction offers generous and comfortable seating. The seating area is upholstered, while the back has an X-shaped design. The fact that this stool has a swivel feature is a mere bonus.

Backless Coastal Stools

Suitable for coastal and farmhouse designs, this set of two stools combines handwoven seating with a rustic appeal with white wooden frame and legs for that perfect beach-themed look. In fact, wicker and wood stool will always provide a combination that’s suitable for a coastal home style, so it’s definitely something you can’t go wrong with.

Coastal & Boho-Style Bar Stool

As we mentioned before, the beauty of coastal decor is that it can combine elements from other styles and you could still manage to pull it off with grace. For instance, this Boho-style bar stool would go perfectly inside a coastal-themed home simply because of its full rattan construction and natural wood look.

Zyaire Bar & Counter Stool

By now, I think it’s pretty clear that bar stools suitable for the coastal theme include natural wooden looks, rattan seating, white wooden frames, blue upholstery, or any combination of these. The Zyaire bar stool seems to have a little bit of everything, and that upholstery certainly makes it fit for an ocean-inspired theme.

Dark-Colored Rattan Stool

For those of you that favor rattan chairs because of their natural look, we have another product that you might really enjoy. With a natural appearance that stays true to the style, this chair will anchor down the light colors that are normally found in coastal setups, bringing everything together and drawing the attention of anyone who spots them.

X-Style Backrest Coastal Stool

With a cohesive look and a solid and manufactured wood design that seems so light and airy, this stool is the perfect addition to a coastal theme and can easily match any existing bar that could pertain to such a setup. The X-shaped backrest and the distressed appearance of the wood are certainly a sight for sore eyes.

Woven Plastic Bar Stool

With a backless design and a seat that’s made from woven plastic that fully imitates the appearance of rattan, this exquisite piece is another item worth considering if you’re setting up a coastal-themed indoor or outdoor bar. The rattan pole legs are just beautiful and have a natural look that makes me want to head down to the beach and enjoy some coconut water just by looking at it.

Solid Wood Bar Stool

We’ve talked so much about rattan chairs today that we almost omitted to underline just how beautifully a full wooden chair would fit into a beach-themed setup. While some would argue that this has a Bohemian design, you can’t tell me this wouldn’t go along perfectly with a white kitchen countertop and some navy blue pillows for the solid wood seating.

Raegan Solid Wood Stools

Suitable for both a farmhouse and a coastal-inspired home, these barstools may look delicate, but they are actually built to last. They come with footrests for a more comfortable seating position, hand-woven rush seats to match the theme in question, and solid wood legs and frames with colors that would blend right into a coastal-themed bar setup.

Conclusion

With so many different options to choose from, the only thing left to think about is how you’re going to combine the elements that could easily find their way into a coastal theme. Less complicated than other styles, with a more relaxed and dreamy vibe, and certainly meant to bring more light into your home, the coastal-inspired theme has a few basic rules to keep in mind. The rest is just finding the proper elements that you most like and making them blend in with the decor.
