An Easy Guide to Choosing Kitchen Chairs and Stools
When it comes to choosing the stools and chairs to have in your kitchen, you will be spoilt for choice as there are so many options to choose from. Which one should you pick? Here is a look at some considerations to bear in mind.
There are many colors you can choose. But do not just look for your favorite color and settle for it. Choose a color that compliments the décor in your kitchen. A good choice is white kitchen stools. These will fit in any kind of kitchen regardless of the colors used in the décor.
There are kitchen stools made out of wood, metal and other materials. On top you can find fabric, leather, wood and other kinds of finishing. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. One of the best options is white leather counter stools. These look awesome, are sturdy and stain-resistant. They are easy to clean and do not absorb odor. Another good choice is white metal counter stools which look amazing and will last a very long time.
If your kitchen has a beautiful island design that you would like to show off, choose kitchen stools and chairs that are backless. This way they will not dominate the kitchen and hide the beautiful design. These can be easily tucked under the overhang and remain invisible till it is time to use them. However, if the design is one you would like to compliment go for seats that have a well designed backrest. If the kitchen sitting area is used often like by kids doing homework, consider getting seats with a backrest, foot rest and are padded for extra comfort.
Height of the counter
The height of the counter on the kitchen will determine the height of the stool and chair you will get for use in the kitchen. For a counter standing at 28-30″ buy chairs that are 18″ tall whereas for counters 36-39″ in height, the right stool to buy is one that is 24-26″ in height. On the other hand bars that are 40-42″ in height are best suited by stools 28-30″ in height. Generally, there should be a space of 10-12″ between the chair’s sitting surface and the counter or table.
