Furnishing a kitchen counter, or a home bar, with bar stools offers a convenient spot for people to sit without necessarily taking up too much space. Bar stools should be able to fit under, or close to, the counter or bar when they are not being used.
How to Choose a Bar Stool
Height is probably the most important aspect to consider when purchasing new bar stools. Ideally you want your bar stool to coordinate with the height of your counter top so one can sit comfortably at the kitchen counter or bar table. Always measure the counter or bar height where the new bar height stools will be used before you go out and buy new bar height stools.
When considering the aesthetics of a bar stool, there are plenty of designs and materials to choose from. At California Stools, Bars, and Dinettes we stock wooden bar stools, metal bar stools, cherry bar stools, bar stools with backs, swivel counter bar stools, wrought iron bar stools and more!
If you’re not sure what type of bar stool would fit, a simple wooden bar stool would be a good option since these are generally well suited for most rooms. Material choices for wooden bar stools include oak, cherry, walnut, ash and mahogany—each with a special character to go with the core theme of the room. If you’re looking for a more economical option, you might consider a wooden bar stool made from raw pine which you can finish in any color.
If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious you might want to look at the swivel bar stools with high backs and padded bar stool cushions. These upholstered bar stools with backs give you the additional benefit of a seat back, providing a sense of comfort to go with the convenience of propping yourself up at the bar table or kitchen counter.
