Tips for Finding the Best Barstools for Your New Kitchen

Barstools can be used in a variety of ways in your kitchen, dining area, and breakfast nook. The right barstool can complement your space and keep up with the aesthetic of the room, while the wrong ones may look out of place or be an eyesore. With so many different styles, types and sizes of barstools available, you may be unsure how to find the best ones for your new kitchen. Here are a few tips that will guide you to the perfect additions.

Consider Where the Barstool Will Be Positioned

One of the first factors to consider is where the barstool will be placed. This will help you determine the right type of barstool and as well as the height of barstool. If you are placing the barstool in front of an eat-in countertop, you need to ensure the height aligns with that countertop. If you are placing the barstools in front of a window, you should consider no-back stools to prevent them from blocking the view. 

Select the Right Material

The material you select for your barstools has a huge influence on the overall look and feel of the space, so make sure to consider the aesthetic of your kitchen or dining room. If your kitchen has a modern or trendy feel to it, metal barstools may help keep up with this theme. If your kitchen or dining room has a classic or country look to it, wood stools may be the best way to complement the existing features in the space. If you are a trendsetter or have an artsy and unique kitchen or dining space, acrylic barstools are cutting edge, making them a great option for you.

Think About How the Barstools Will Get Used

Lastly, consider how the barstools will get used. If the barstool is in a breakfast nook, it may only get used for a few minutes while you grab a bite to eat. If the barstool is placed in an area where people will socialize and watch a football game, it may be used for hours on end. The frequency in which it gets used helps you determine whether to go for style or comfort when picking a barstool. This will also help you determine how durable the material on the stool needs to be.
