So, you’re done with kitchen flooring, countertop installation, kitchen cabinet painting, and other things, then it is time to choose barstools for your kitchen. Kitchen barstools may sound insignificant and you think you can choose any type of stool from the lot but there is a lot that goes into choosing the right type of barstool for your kitchen bar. To find out more, keep on reading.
- The Right Dimensions
The first thing you need to keep in mind is what will be the dimensions of the barstool you are looking for. To know that, you need to know your kitchen and island dimensions. You need to know what height of the stool, the thickness of the bar, the thickness of the wood, what type of wood you want for your bar, etc. Dimensions are a very important factor to consider when buying bar stools for your kitchen because you don’t want to overpower everything else with obnoxious barstools, they should be a complimenting addition to your kitchen and with the barstools, your kitchen should look complete.
- Do You Want Back Support Or Not?
Here is another important question to ask yourself when buying bar stools for your kitchen, do you want them to have backrests or not? This option completely depends on you and everyone’s choice will be different. If you prefer a more comfortable barstool, then obviously a barstool with a backrest is your best choice. If you want something which is a little bit more on the classy and chic side, then a backless barstool is a good option. You can also get rustic barstools if you want to go for a farmhouse vibe. This choice solely depends on the buyer and their preferences.
- Finish Of The Stool
The wood finish of the stool is just as important. Do you want a glossy wood finish? Do you prefer a sawed wood finish? Do you like the look of a sanded wood finish? Does dark wood look better in your kitchen or light wood? These questions will ultimately decide whether the barstools you select will go with the kitchen or not. This is why you should always keep the finish of the wood in mind as well since it does add an extra effect to your kitchen bar.
- The Number Of Stools
Last but certainly not least, you need to evaluate how many stools you need for your kitchen bar. The thing to remember here is that you don’t want to overcrowd your bar. There should be ample stools, but not so much that the symmetry looks thrown off. For a conventional kitchen bar, 4 to 5 barstools are considered more than enough. If your kitchen is bigger or smaller, then you need to increase or decrease the number of stools, respectively. All in all, there should be a considerable amount of space between each stool, in general.
There you have it! With these tips, you are sure to find the perfect type of barstool for your kitchen bar, with the right dimensions, the right spacing, everything. It is better to choose them before doing kitchen cabinet painting and countertop selection so that they match with them.
