So we’ve teamed up with Cult Furniture and their selection of designer stools to help you find the best bar stools for your home.
As bar stools come in a range of different shapes and styles, it’s important that you consider your needs, the height of your kitchen bar, and the style of your space before you make a decision.
There three main types of bar stools. These are backless, upholstered, and swivel.
Being the most versatile and inexpensive option, these are the most common stool design. Great for saving space and perfect if you prefer to keep stools underneath your counter. They’re also lightweight, making them easy to move around and clean.
These stools are upholstered in soft fabrics such as velvet and are usually cushioned, making them a superior option for comfort. Available in a range of rich colours and patterns, these stools add an air of formality to your space.
Swivel stools are the most convenient stools you can get, as you can turn the seat, these stools are easier to get into. They’re also the more social option, as you and your guests can easily swivel around to face each other. Because of this, you won’t need to physically move your stools, given how heavy stools can be this is very handy.
Most bar stools are made of either wood or metal.
Wooden ba rstools are a solid option that can fit with nearly any aesthetic, especially mid-century and Scandinavian interiors.
Metal bar stools typically have a sleek silhouette, making them great for smaller spaces and industrial or modern interiors. On-trend tones such as brass or copper can add a warming tone to your kitchen.
