Whether hosting family and friends or having a drink alone after a long work week, bar stools are an essential part of your home design. In addition to adding a stylish flair to your kitchen or dining room area, a barstool can prove to be helpful seating that can work in any area of your home when additional seating is required. At City Furniture, we have a wide selection of kitchen bar stools for you to choose from. Here are some things you should consider when seeking bar stools for sale.
Size Is Important
Generally speaking, barstools are divided into two distinct categories - counter height bar stools and bar height bar stools. Counter height bar stools are 23-28 inches tall and bar height bar stools are any that are greater than 28 inches. This is significant because the last thing you want to do is purchase cheap bar stools that won't fit correctly in your home. By ensuring that you purchase the correct size, you can save yourself time, money and frustration. Regardless of whether you’re seeking 24 inch bar stools or extra tall bar stools, you’ll be able to find them here.
Much like with dining room chairs, bar stools come in various styles. There are two ways to approach this. On one hand you can look for something that matches your decor perfectly. So, if you have a modern home, try adding metal bar stools with eye-catching curves or consider leather bar stools that age gracefully.
However, bar stools also give you an opportunity to break the rules a bit and provide a stark contrast to the rest of the room. For instance, in an all-black kitchen space, nothing pops like a set of white bar stools. You can also use barstools to infuse conflicting styles. Try adding rustic bar stools to a modern space and see how friends and family react to the bold move.
As you shop for barstools, remember that not all of them are created equal. While a backless barstool may look great in your space, your back pain may lead you to narrow your search to bar stools with backs.
If you're someone who likes to play board games at your bar area, make sure the barstools you settle on are upholstered with comfortable seats. While wooden bar stools may look great, they aren't the most comfortable after a few hours of sitting.
