From my professional experience as an interior designer, I know that today’s kitchen features are in really wide variety. One of the essentials in the modern kitchen is the kitchen island – a large rectangular or square construction, usually in the middle of the room, providing enough space for storage with its drawers and shelves. It’s surface is usually used for cooking or preparing meals.
Another great feature in today’s kitchen is the bar. There are many families that like having a small bar in their kitchen, so that they can use it either for displaying some interesting decorations or to use it for a quick cocktail and chat while cooking. Personally, I like to go back home, have a quick shower and then go the kitchen where my wife prepares the dinner. We together make a pleasant company to each other chatting. I just sit on the kitchen island on a bar stool, drink a quick beer and wait for her to make the dinner ready.
That’s why today I have collected some interesting examples of kitchen bar stools that everyone of us can use at home. They are great since they are able to provide the needed comfort for a short break. So, let’s have a look at these kitchen bar stools.
Kitchen Bar Stools – Why to Choose Them?
As I have already outline, they have many functional advantages. Kitchen bar stools can used either at the kitchen island or the kitchen bar, of course, if you have any. If you haven’t seen any bar stools I must outline their main features:
They are higher than the traditional chairs or armchairs because bars and islands are much higher than traditional coffee or dinner tables;
They have legs which help them lift the seat;
Most of them have backrests. Well, there are some traditional designs that exclude the backrest, but as overall it is a very common feature of bar stools.
Kitchen Bar Stools – What Style to Choose?
To be honest – it all depends on your home and more precisely, your kitchen interior design style. If you have a traditional or classic kitchen, maybe it’s best for you to search for those leather kitchen bar stools with buttons and ornate wooden frames. They are a little bit more expensive than the ordinary ones, but it’s because the cost of the materials and what is more – they provide unique elegance and luxury in your home.
On the other hand, if you live in a modern city condo or a minimalist or futuristic house, then you’d better think about those polished type of materials. Have in mind that kitchen bar stools that suit best in contemporary interiors are mainly made from glass, metal and mdf.
