Bar Stools at FurnishMyHome.uk
The rising popularity of the bar stools has been a big story of the past decade, with kitchen counter tables becoming a trend for quick & casual dining. But wherever you have a high dining surface, a bar stool is a handy way to provide some seating without taking up too much room. They’re an effortlessly cool addition to any kitchen or dining room, and make for handy extra seats when you’re entertaining guests.
There are a few considerations when you’re choosing a bar stool, so let’s go through them one by one.
Consider the height of the bar stool
First, there’s the height. Tall bar stools can be a struggle for kids or people with mobility issues, so bear that in mind when you’re choosing. Many of them are adjustable, which is achieved via a hydraulic lever beneath the seat, so you can make it your own if you like. Most bar stools also come with a footrest, for those who don’t want to leave their calves dangling – it can also help you to mount the chair, too.
Do you want it to swivel?
Second, do you want it to swivel? It’s very common for a bar stool to rotate 360 degrees, and it’s a great feature that can help you get on it and then twist it around to face the table. Not all do rotate, though, in the traditional bar stool style. They’re still high, but because they’re in a fixed position, you might find yourself having to squeeze into a space to get your legs under the table.
Choosing the right style
Finally, there’s the style. FurnishMyHome.uk has a wide range of styles and looks to choose from. You can opt for a solid wooden style, for example, for a proper bar look. Stools also come with or without backs, and the back itself can be a full chair height or, most commonly, just reach the small of your back to provide some support and stop you slipping backwards.
In terms of looks, you can go for the complete chrome cocktail bar look, which is always a popular choice, or you can choose something drawn more from cafe culture, a dark brown leather look that’s always cool.
