It’s Not One Size Fits All when Selecting the Correct Height Barstool

Islands and bars can be at different heights, so can barstools. When selecting the perfect barstool for your design there are a few points to keep in mind as with any design plan. They are the mood, the function, and the style of the room. First, the mood: is it a casual kitchen or a sophisticated wine tasting room? For a casual kitchen island, a wooden or woven bar height stool would be perfect. However, for an upscale sophisticated modern wine tasting room. Using a slick leather bar height stool would fit the mood perfectly.


Secondly, you must consider the function of the stools in the design. Maybe you have an amazing view from your breakfast table. Contemplate selecting a countertop height kitchen table and countertop height chairs to capture the view while dining. This way they will be interchangeable with the island counter height chairs when needed. Lastly, the style of the design will be a key factor when selecting your bar stool. Therefore, ask yourself and your family a few questions. How do you feel about a swivel bar stool? Also, do you like arms with your seating? Answering these simple questions will go a long way in choosing the correct barstool for your home.
