Looking for the right stool for your kitchen? Then before you hit the online store, there are some factors like comfort, style, height etc. you will have to keep in mind. And in case you have no clue on how to go about it besides the criteria that it ‘should look good’ below mentioned in your ways to follow guide which will help you find the best stools for your kitchen, home and even your in-home bar.
First Comes the Height
Do you know the chair, bar or counter height? To know for sure which stool you need, make sure you measure the height of the table and the counter. Remember that you will need 9″-13″ between the seat and the counter for seating comfort.
Don’t clutter the space. There is no point in putting five stools next to each other if the guests keep bumping their elbows while eating. Depending on the width of the table, make sure you provide enough space for the guest to eat, drink without bumping into each other.
It’s Time to Think About the Style of Stool
What kind of stools catches your fancy? Something simple or a design statement? Do you want something discreet or flamboyant? The stools you want, do they really go with the vibe and décor of your kitchen? Answer these questions honestly before purchasing so that you don’t end up with buyer’s remorse.
Depends on the Kitchen Design
Remember that if your kitchen is small or your stools are going to be places in a narrow length of space, its best if you don’t overwhelm the space with excessive material but pick backless seating that can easily tuck away. But if you love to entertain and want something more lounge-worthy, choose a broad-backed stool with deep seating.
On the other hand, if you are going to use the stools in a space where food will be served, always opt for low maintenance material, such as leather, wood or metal. If you choose upholstered stools, choose a microfiber that easily wipes clean. Or, choose cushions that you can swap out.
Whether your kitchen is traditional, rustic, modern or contemporary, with a bit of research you will always find the right stools to complement the look. Avoid the trend of matching everything as it might come across as tacky.
