When it comes to bar stool styles for our kitchen, choosing the right ones can seem challenging given so many options. But shopping for the perfect barstools doesn’t need to be complicated. In this article, you’ll discover ten styles that can work in almost every type of kitchen.
Bar Stool History & Popularity
Historically, bar stool origins date back to the 1930s to take full advantage of valuable real estate in front of bars. Often, pretty girls sat in them as eye candy to draw male patrons. Since then, the barstool went through numerous transformations and evolved into where they are today.
More so, with so many designs and shapes available, it’s often tricky selecting the perfect style for your home. With the kitchen island’s ever-growing popularity, bar stools made their way into our homes and our hearts. With the upsurge of kitchen islands, our homes needed the perfect chair that offered us the height and style we wanted.
Typically, most of us enjoy spending time around our kitchen islands when gathering with our families when grabbing a quick snack. The kitchen island quickly became the focal point of our kitchens with its many amenities and luxurious granite countertops.
Additionally, this is where we enjoy our stylish bar stools, especially for their comfort and ease of us. While we love them in kitchens, there are other areas where you can use them. Decorators now feature them in basement family rooms, a cozy accent nook or side table, and the trendy man cave.
With a wide range of styles and prices to choose from, bar stools will add style to any kitchen in your home. With that said, let’s take a look at some popular bar stool decor and options you’ll want to consider.
Backless Bar Stools
