Why We Love Kitchen Counter & Bar Stools

The kitchen is the most deserving space of the home for a set of modern counter and bar stools. At the kitchen counter or positioned at the island, bar stools and counter stools offer comfortably elevated seating in a room that tends to see a lot of traffic and requires a lot of places to sit. Stools can also be companions to cafe tables and high top tables in breakfast nooks or compact eating areas. And the variety of stools, including swivel stools, options with backs and with or without arms, give you plenty of choices to choose from.

Functional and fashionable, a stool is an excellent choice of seating for the kitchen. Unlike a traditional side chair or arm chair, a bar stool sits a bit higher up and is ideal when placed at a high surface like kitchen counters and islands. And while you'll enjoy sitting higher up, you'll also love bringing exceptional style into the kitchen. From plush upholstered options that support extended sitting to sleek and minimalist designs fit for the modern kitchen, there's a stool here for you.

A Kitchen Counter Or Bar Stool For Every Style

Bar stools for kitchen islands come in all shapes, sizes and styles from renown design brands. To fit a mid-century themed kitchen, look to the retro inspired stools from Gus Modern. In all of its furniture offering, Gus Modern pays tribute to styles made popular in the middle of the century. Domitalia's swivel counter and bar stools offer a familiar look and many are suited with thick cushioning for added comfort. Philippe Starck's stools for Kartell combine color and durable polycarbonate construction that works in almost any kitchen's aesthetic. Calligaris stools prominently feature fine Italian craftsmanship and can serve as statement pieces in the kitchen too. Finally, for a contemporary collection of stools, be sure to see the Blu Dot assortment.

Choosing the Best Kitchen Stools

Choosing the best bar stools for the kitchen requires careful attention to the room's color, layout and sizes your counter or island can accommodate. First, introduce stools into the area that fit your existing color palette. Look to the color tones of your kitchen table, island or counter tops to find the best options to seamlessly blend in. Or, consider stools offering popping color vibes to make a statement in the space. Swivel bar stools are great for permanent placement, while stools with tall backs support comfortable sitting and the stools without arms store easily under the island when not in use. Upholstered bar stools, those with padded cushioning and flat, minimalist designs are available too. Finally, with a size, color and style on your mind, refine your stool choices by the most appropriate sizes for your island or counter. Remember to measure the height of the seat, not its back.

Other Great Options

If your kitchen does not offer island seating and you still prefer the height of a stool, check out the selection of bar tables. A bar table and stool set up is the perfect solution for breakfast nooks or compact areas of the kitchen. Similar to this assortment of stools, bar tables are offered in modern and contemporary styles to suit your home. Make sure your island is brightly illuminated for kitchen-oriented tasks too. Kitchen island lighting is often linear in its form or you may consider stringing multiple mini pendants together to achieve the same effect. With the right combination of furniture and lighting, you'll have a desirable and welcoming kitchen.
