From kitsch to classic: the perfect kitchen bar stools
If you’ve ever found yourself needing a little sit down in the middle of cooking dinner then there’s one thing you have to treat yourself to: a kitchen bar stool. Kitchen bar stools aren’t just handy for taking a five minute break for a glass of water (or maybe even a glass of wine), they can instantly transform your kitchen, making them look trendier, more sophisticated and even more valuable.
The type of kitchen bar stool you’ll want will depend on what exactly you want to do with it. If you just want a chance to give your feet a quick break or have a seat for a cup of tea, a couple of biscuits, and a chat with friends then you’ll want something you can easily slip on and off of. Since you won’t need so much back support you can dedicate your kitchen bar stool search to finding something that looks incredible. Something like the Vogue bar stool is perfect. The contrast between the colour of the faux leather seat and the single, sturdy leg is very fashionable – the blue and white combination is particularly cool. Despite the minimal back support the stool is surprisingly comfortable, with a moulded foam padded seat.
If you want kitchen bar stools that you’ll occasionally use for eating you’ll need something with a little more back support so you feel more comfortable relaxing while having your dinner. The Carlo bar stool has an understated, elegant design that offers back support in abundance and a wide seat for additional comfort. While this bar stool may not scream out for attention it’s sure to catch the eye of friends and family thanks to it’s classic shape and soothing colours. If you plan to eat while on a bar stool there’s always the possibility it will get messy – thankfully the faux leather on the seat is wipe clean, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your meal and less time worrying about getting stains out of your furniture.
For something so comfortable it could almost be considered indulgent check out the Vitello bar stool. The backrest reclines just enough to allow you the chance to really sit back and relax without wanting a quick nap, but there’s nothing about this bar stool to suggest it’s for slackers. Deep luxurious padding and wonderfully soft faux leather give this bar stool a truly executive feel that will be right at home in the type of kitchen that sports a coffee machine of its own. The classic black model has a timeless quality that is hard to resist, but the more daring amongst you will love the opportunity to sit on this model in red, white or cream.
Kitchens aren’t always known for being the most comfortable of places –cooking, washing up, and mopping the floor is definitely more like work than play for most. With the addition of some kitchen bar stools you can make sure that you take the time out to reward yourself properly on occasion, while making what can sometimes be a quite clinical environment that much more pleasant.
