You can increase both the utility and charm of your kitchen island with bar stools. Bar stools lend themselves to a variety of styles – just decide the message your kitchen bar stool should send, and select your stools accordingly.
Your kitchen bar stools can simply say, “I’m a handy place to sit while resting a minute or while preparing food.” A simple wooden stool sized to your height and the height of the island sends a message of simplicity. Consider a Shaker-styled stool that retains its natural wood coloring, protected by varnish or similar coating. It is easy to clean, attractive, and sends a message that your kitchen is focused on food preparation.
Want something a little fancier than your basic utility stool? Layer paint in different colors over that basic stool, sandpaper its edges to let the layers of paint show through, and now you have a conversation piece as well as a sturdy place to rest. Or, if you would like a stool that has a back and a padded cushion, select a model that has a swivel seat and a back, and add a chintz seat cushion and backrest.
