Almost all kitchen islands incorporate seating, for times spent relaxing, catching up with friends or breakfast with the family. Bar stools are essential for those high island worktops. If you spend the majority of your time living in your kitchen you need to look for well-designed versatile options.
Consider the aesthetic and style within your space. You don’t want the stools to be to be overbearing. There’s a multitude of materials to choose from. If you have a contemporary kitchen go for a simple and timeless design with faux leather or fabric finish. For more industrial kitchens add rich textures with raw wood, iron finishes and metal frames.
Know what you’re working with and measure your cabinet height before making decisions. There are many options out there to consider. As well as the height, think about whether your dream seating will resist stains and liquids. Go for durable finishes when they’re placed next to prep or cooking areas.
