Kitchen Table Bar Stools - Perfect for Small Kitchens in the Modern
With today’s modern kitchens we are
looking for more versatility in the furniture that we buy, especially when working with a limited space like a
small apartment or a small kitchen. That's just one of the reasons the use of bar stools in the kitchen is
becoming more popular these days. As a breakfast bar or even the main dining area in as small kitchen bar
stools for use in the kitchen add quite a bit of flexibility. They make perfect small kitchen tables for rooms with limited space.
If you are shopping online for a new bar stool there are a couple of things you
need to keep in mind.
Bar Stool Styles for the Small Kitchen
You will find a variety of different designs available that will work well in the
kitchen but it depends on how you plan to use them as to what style you want. If you are shopping for stools that
will be used around a bar style island or a counter top you will want to look for a taller bar stool and one that
doesn't have any arms. If you are planning on using a bar stool as a chair around a counter height table then you
want a stool with the features of a traditional chair - like arms - to provide for more comfort.
Kitchen Bar Stool Sizes
Traditionally you find that bar stools are
from approximately 24 inches to 36 inches high, some barstools are also available with an adjustable function
which is a very nice feature is you need to use the same bar stools for both children and adults.To make sure
you are getting the proper size you want to ensure that you have about 12 inches of spaces from the counter
top to the seat of the stool. This distance allows you to sit comfortably at the counter.
Materials & Textures for Kitchen Bar Stools
There are a variety of choices available when it comes to materials. Typically you
choose a material that will coordinate well with your existing decor. Online you can find wrought iron, wood and
metal of course are the most common.
The type of material texture you choose will be greatly influenced by your design
goals. Are you trying to make the barstools the center of attention to draw the eye to a specific focal point in
the room? Or do you want the barstools to blend in with the decor and be primarily
Speaking of being functional. The choices you make in terms of style and materials
will also be influenced by you plans for using the stools. Are they to be the primary setting for the counter top
area, or just a place for friends to sit occasionally while watching the Saturday football game on TV? Are they
going to be subject to abuse - kids dropping ketchup and mustard on them or are adults, responsible we hope, the
primary users. Whether you choose cloth or leather or other types of materials will be influenced by these factors.
I always go for a material that is easy to clean and will wear well.
