Finding the right breakfast bar stools for your kitchen is challenging because there are so many factors to consider, including height, style and comfort. For starters, consider the decor and style of your kitchen: is it modern or traditional? Do you want breakfast bar stools that will blend with or complement the room’s other furnishings?
Additionally, think of the design of the stools you’ll be choosing: how tall do you want them to be? Do you prefer a stool with a back? Would you like breakfast bar stools that swivel? A swivel top can be particularly nice if your kitchen is part of a large space.
Do you want to make a design statement or do you want more discreet seating? And do the stools you really want work in the space you have? Your answers can help you determine the style of stool that will ultimately work in your kitchen.
Below you will find 7 ideas to help you find the best stools for your kitchen island, breakfast bar or even your in-home pub.
If you want to place your stools in a busy or narrow corridor or you don’t want a look that overwhelms your island, choose backless seating that can easily tuck away. But if you love to entertain and want something more lounge-worthy, choose a broad-backed stool with deep seating.
If you’ll use your stools where food is served, consider a low-maintenance material, such as leather, wood or metal. If you choose upholstered stools, choose a microfiber that easily wipes clean. Or, choose cushions that you can swap out.
Whether the style of your kitchen is traditional, rustic or contemporary, you can find a stool that complements your look. There’s no need to be too matchy-matchy. If, for example, your dining room is adjacent to your kitchen, it’s not necessary to match the style of seating. And if you already have a lot of wood, try mixing it up with metal stools.
Now that you have had some suggestions, consider updating your breakfast area and keep an open mind, and you’ll find just the right look for your kitchen, with the perfect Breakfast Bar Stools.
