How to Find the Perfect Barstool

Last updated 6 years ago

Create a stylish and functional bar area by shopping for barstools that truly complement the space. Many people eat meals at their kitchen bars, which is why it is so important to make sure you have the right stools. When you are in the furniture store, use these tips to help you find perfect barstools for your space:

Shop for Comfort

As with all the other furniture in your home, it is important to find pieces that are comfortable. Test out a few different styles in the furniture store, so you can be sure that you are choosing the most comfortable option. After all, you do not want to buy uncomfortable barstools that no one ever uses!

Take Measurements

One of the most important characteristics of a barstool is its height. You want to find seats that are tall enough to reach the bar but not so tall that you cannot sit underneath it. Before you start to shop, take measurements of the bar area. Look at the specs on a few different stool styles to be sure you are buying the right size.

Find Your Style

Once you have narrowed down your selection, you should choose stools that complement the décor in the rest of the room. If your home has a Southwestern appeal, consider stools with a natural finish. If you have a traditional décor, consider a stool that has arms and a back. Stay true to your preferred aesthetic, and you will find seats that work with the rest of the room.
