Best Bar Stools For Kitchen
The first thing you need to know is how tall the bar stools should be. There are two standard heights, counter height and bar height.
Counter height bar stools tend to be about 24 inches tall. This leaves room above the stool for your legs before the counter top starts.
Bar height stools are usually about 29 inches. You will know which one you have if you have a counter that extends from an island or a peninsula in one straight line. That’s what I have in my kitchen.
If you have a counter that jumps up to another level then you most likely have bar height. It’s a good idea to measure and double check either way.
If you don’t have a ton of room in your kitchen and breakfast nook/dining area then you will want to opt for bar stools that easily slide under the counter top.
I love this bar stool because it’s the barstool equivalent of my favorite dining chair, the Paige dining chair from World Market. I love the distressed finish and the linen color upholstered top. This stool comes in several colors and both counter heights.
I bought this bar stool years ago. It’s from Target and it looked perfect in my old kitchen, as well as my kitchen in my current house. This bar stool is perfect if you have kids! No upholstery so it’s super easy to clean and if it gets a little distress to it that only adds to the character of the stool.
These are also great for kids and since they are made of metal, they are super durable! They also stack so you can purchase a bunch and stack them up for when not in use. Great for entertaining! They also come in several colors.
Stools With Backs
If you have the room having a bar stool with a back is very comfortable. Here are some great options that are upholstered.
These faux leather chairs are stunning with the camel color and the bold toned base. I love these!
These rattan bar stools are the perfect addition for a boho or coastal feel.
These X back bar stools are super stylish while being comfortable at the same time.
This is one of the most popular styles of barstools on the market right now. If you are on Instagram and follow many decor accounts then you have seen them. They are from Serena and Lilly and are perfect for Coastal, Transitional, or Modern design styles.
