If you have a wet bar in the home or prefer a sleeker, contemporary look, then a leather bar stool and counter stool would be an excellent consideration. For this, you have many different styles such as the solid hardwood stool that features clean lines and a traditional scrolled back. These counter stools and barstools come with and without armrests and are available in a number of wood types and leather colors. Now, if you want something more industrial looking, you could change up the leather barstool and counter stool by choosing a tall model made from chrome, straight legs, no arms, and black leather seat.
What are these stools exactly? Popularly known as bar stools, counter stools are used where ever counters exist. Like some other types of stools used inside a home, they are basically high single seats with or without a backrest. They are primarily used for kitchen counters or mini-bars if available in your home. They are usually without arms but some designs may feature those with short arms. They are usually made of sturdy materials keeping their frequent use in consideration.
Of course the first thing you need to think about when choosing the perfect counter stools for your kitchen is what style do you want for your stools. Because counter height stools are available in so many different colors, shapes, patterns, and designs you be sure to find just the style youre looking for once you make a few decisions about the kind of stool you want. Do you want a kitchen stool with a back or would you prefer a backless one? Do you want a stool that swivels or one thats still? Would type material should the stool be made of? In order to make these decisions you have to first decide on the overall look of your kitchen and how the stools will fit in. For example if your kitchen has more of a contemporary, modern feel you may choose kitchen stools with a wrought iron finish to blend in with the modern theme. If your kitchen has a counter feel, you may want swivel counter stools in an oak wood finish. The important thing to remember when deciding on the style of the stool is to make sure that it blends in seamlessly with the look of the room.
Once youve made your decision on the right style stools for your kitchen, now you need to turn your attention to which color scheme will work best for the area. This is a very important decision because color plays a very important role in the look of any room. If you throw too many different colors together, you are going to end up with a mess. If you find yourself a bit confused as to the perfect color for your stools, choose the safe route and go with a neutral. Neutral colors can blend in with the look of just about any room. Choose colors like white, khaki, cream, or beige. On the other hand, if you feel a splash of bold color is just what you need for your kitchen you can go with counter stools in strong colors like red, green, blue, or black. Just be sure that they dont clash with the overall look.
First, swivel counter stools and bar stools are great in that you can get on and off easily and turn 360 degrees to get a view of the room from any vantage point. These stools offer a traditional classic appeal that works well with many types of décor. If you want a touch of elegance, you could choose the swivel bar stool and counter stool made from cherry or mahogany and upholstered seats with a rich, warm fabric. If you prefer something from the Mission period, then you could choose a stool with the slated backs.
The next thing to keep in mind is the height of the chair proportional to the table or counter where you will be sitting. You should make sure there is about 8-10 inches between the seat and the underside of the table or counter. If not, it will be a pinch, literally, every time you, or your guests, try to take a seat, as your legs will be pinched between the countertop and the chair. This will not make sitting at your counter an enjoyable event, and likely will lead you and everyone else avoiding this seating area.
