Picking the Right Bar Stools for Your Kitchen
Your kitchen— as wonderful as it is— looks bland. You spent a lot of time perfecting each little detail but you remain unsatisfied with the finished design. We might just have the solution to turn things around and ensure the only thing you feel when you see your kitchen is satisfaction.
Our Solution: Breakfast Bar Stools for Your Kitchen Island
Kitchen bar stools can liven up your kitchen environment. Your friends and family can keep you company while you cook a scrumptious meal. However, entertainment isn’t the only way you can use bar stools. The multi-purpose stools can function as a place to eat, do homework, grab a quick bite, and create extra seating space.
While All This Sounds Good, You’re Still Not in the Clear because another Problem Awaits You
With several bar stools for sale (we do have quite a collection), picking the right bar stools for your kitchen can be a dilemma. But not to worry because we’re here to make the entire process of buying breakfast bar stools in Ireland easier for you. So, let’s start!
Know Your Reason for Buying Breakfast Bar Stools
Why do you want to buy a bar stool for your kitchen and what function will it serve? Let’s break this down even further to help you find your reason.
- Do you want barstools to seat numerous people when hosting parties in your home?
- Do you want barstools to serve as an area where you can have your morning tea or coffee in peace?
- Do you want barstools for purely aesthetic reasons such as adding character to your kitchen?
If being honest, a kitchen island without barstools is like a lamp without a bulb. They just go together, so that’s reason enough to explore the vast market of breakfast bar stools in Ireland.
Before you start exploring, you need to know the difference between bar stools and kitchen bar stools.
The Difference between Kitchen Bar Stools and Bar Stools
We bet you didn’t know that a barstool was different from a kitchen bar stool, and you want the latter. What’s the difference between the two? It’s the height!
- A Kitchen Bar Stool measures between 61 to 69 centimetres from the floor to the seat.
- A Bar Stool measures between 71 to 81 centimetres from the floor to the seat.
However, these measurements can vary depending on a bar stool’s style. For instance, you can choose between adjustable breakfast bar stools or fixed bar stools. Now that’s clear, let’s tell you how to pick the best bar stool for your kitchen.
4 Tips for Choosing the Right Breakfast Bar Stools for Your Kitchen
You’re almost there! As soon as you learn how to choose the right kitchen bar stools, you can start your journey into the world of breakfast bar stools in Ireland. The following tips will aid in your search to selecting the perfect bar stool:
1. Pay Attention to Space
Here’s what you need to consider:
- Space between the bar stools and the kitchen island
- Space between each bar stool
Our rule of thumb: Leave around 23 to 28 centimetres of space between the kitchen island and your lap. This will give you plenty of wiggle room and it won’t feel congested.
Most breakfast bar stools have a width of about 40 centimetres but again, a bar stool’s style can increase the width. Therefore, measuring the space to find out how many bar stools you can fit under your kitchen is important.
We recommend leaving around 15 centimetres of space between each kitchen bar stool. For bar stools with a backrest, make sure you can slide the bar stool neatly under the kitchen island. Here’s a picture of one of our breakfast bar stools that demonstrates this:
2. Height Matters
We already told you about measuring height but since getting it right is so crucial, we wanted to elaborate on it a little further. Our bar stools on sale come in various heights. A very short bar stool won’t reach the kitchen island whereas a very tall bar stool will cause discomfort and you’ll struggle to fit your legs under the kitchen island.
To ensure you face neither of these issues, you need to get a bar stool that’s around 25 to 30 centimetres less than the height of your kitchen island.
3. Comfort is Key
Since bar stools will act as an additional space to entertain your guests, you want to provide them with comfortable seating. With comfort taking priority, these features eliminate all signs of discomfort:
- Upholstered seat with padded cushion
- Backrest, armrest, and leg rest
- Adjustable seat with 360-degree swivel
- Ergonomic design
You and your guests can sit for long hours without experiencing any aches and pains.
4. Design Brings the Whole Room Together
Your breakfast bar stools should not clash with your kitchen’s theme and layout. Instead, they need to complement each other. With bar stools available in various colours and material, finding one that seamlessly blends with your kitchen or enhances its best features won’t be a problem.
Just take a look at our extensive collection of adjustable and fixed bar stools. Both styles come in several colours such as wine red, grey, black, navy blue, yellow, and more. Adjustable barstools have a chrome polished leg and fixed bar stools have iron legs.
While all offer a backrest and footrest, not all offer an armrest. Moreover, you can get either upholstered velvet bar stools or faux leather bar stools. All these things will play a part when you search for kitchen bar stools.
