It seems that everyone loves kitchen bar stools, and why shouldn’t they? They are frequently extremely stylish, comfortable and easy for both adults and children to move around, mount and descend off, all of which may lead you to consider them a staple of your dream kitchen.However, there can be a few tricky issues to think about when trying to choose the right kitchen bar stools, and we aren’t just referring to height. Here are a few examples of what we mean.How To Choose The Right Kitchen Bar Stools
What kind of bar stools would fit in with your kitchen decor?
Before you even think about the dimensions of the bar stools you require, you will need to consider what aesthetic and materials you desire them to have, and whether this would make them a good fit for the decor of your existing kitchen.
For a modern breakfast bar, a contemporary metal bar stool may represent the perfect investment. However, if you have a more traditional country kitchen, a suitably ‘old school’ wooden bar stool is a more obvious choice.
How will you be using your stools?
Many people buy kitchen bar stools with the idea that the home’s occupants and guests alike will sit on them to eat and drink. If this is the case for you, you should consider exactly who is likely to use your stools, and how.
Will your stools need to be resistant to food and drink spills? If so, a solid seat may be the best choice, although padded upholstery is also not out of the question if you opt for a sufficiently durable fabric such as leather or vinyl.
You might even go as far as choosing bar stools with backrests to which cushions can be easily tied, so that if required, the cushion covers can be removed and washed.
Finally, yes, you can’t ignore the matter of size
Much has been said about how to ensure your kitchen bar stools are neither too large, nor too small. Height can be a particular bugbear, and a good rule of thumb to ensure that an average adult can sit comfortably on your kitchen bar stools is to allow a gap of 25-30 centimetres between the top of the stool and the underside of the bar or table at which they will be seated.
