Pastel colours have been running riot over the past year or so. From mint green, to candy pink, to luscious lemon; these shades are enough to make your mouth water. I don’t know about you, but I can just picture a doting mother and her daughter baking cupcakes in a kitchen like this. Black and white may seem like a safe option to go for, but when you bring gloss into the equation you not only maximise the shine but the style as well. Monochrome is bold, striking and contemporary, plus it’s relatively easy to use as well.
Because bar stools are a taller seating piece, they tend to be noticeable. A glossy modern stool or three can go a long way toward making an entire area feel more contemporary, if that is your aim. Metal, wood, even leather – the combination of the primary materials for industrial style are perfect for a variety of bar stools. If the style of your space happens to be leaning toward industrial already, enjoy the many bar stool options that complement that design. You might be best served by simply gravitating toward the type of bar stool that you love…just as you gravitate toward the variety of treasures you’ve already incorporated into your space. The bar stools will feel right at home. Fabric is definitely one of the easiest ways to bring in color and pattern into a space with bar stools. (Spaces that, typically, may be short on both of those design aspects.) Fabric bar stools tend to be comfortable and pretty, although probably the hardest to clean.
Even if the bar stool is the only color in the entire neutral space, it can be enough to add fresh life and personality. You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality. Metal has many benefits as a bar stool medium. It is durable, easy to clean, and stylishly versatile. Metal bar stools also tend to be visually lighter-weight than other types of stools, which is definitely something to keep in mind. By their very nature of being wood, wooden frame bar stools tend to carry more visual punch than other materials, which are able to be manipulated for weight-bearing capacities. Wooden frames can be quite versatile, as they look fantastic in a cottage setting as well as provide a lovely earthy contrast in a more contemporary one.
The seating you use in the kitchen should definitely be comfortable, but stylish too. Find the perfect mix between the two ideals by choosing dining chairs. These add an elegant touch to the room while creating a relaxed atmosphere.
