How to choose the best bar stool for your space

Are you searching for bar stools that will perfectly suit your space? There’s a lot to consider, including the material, colour and style. Whether you’re renovating your kitchen and installing a beautiful dining area, or need additional seating for upcoming Christmas parties, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at our top tips for choosing the perfect bar stools.

For a rustic look: rattan

If your home is full of rustic charm, then the best option is a beautiful woven rattan bar stool that will sit perfectly within the space. Rattan furniture is hugely popular thanks to its versatility – a natural blonde colour will suit almost any colour scheme. There are many styles to choose from, including round and square designs.

For a country style: oak

Does your kitchen ooze country charm? Then opt for a delicately carved oak style that will complement the rest of the space. Those wanting a traditional country cottage look will love cross back counter stools in either traditional wood or painted styles. Pair with a comfy check pattern cushion for the perfect combination of style and comfort. 

For an industrial edge: metal

If you want to create a modern look, choose a carefully crafted industrial style bar stool. Thanks to the popularity of the industrial interior design trend, there are plenty of options to choose from. Black and grey designs are the safest bet for an industrial style – opt for stools with sleek metal legs and seats made from iron. Pop a shaggy cushion on the seat to make your guests feel at home.

For a luxurious feel: leather

Those that want to make their home feel super luxurious will love a bar stool that’s been handcrafted using genuine leather. The great thing about this material is it not only looks great but is extremely comfortable too. Choose a warm tan colour in a country style kitchen or chocolate brown for a modern space.

For a cosy vibe: knit

Want to feel snug and cosy during the winter months? A chunky knit stool may be just what you’re looking for. Typically featuring a non-back knit seat and wooden legs, this style is perfect for a Scandinavian style space. Perfect for moving from room to room when you entertain!
