Bar stools are not just bar stools: Gone are the days when the bar stool was only to be found in bad bars and cool individual kitchens. Nowadays, a counter is an integral part of many modern kitchens. Especially in open-plan kitchens it serves as an optical room divider and invites you for a drink or a quick snack. And what could be better than a seat for a bar counter, as a bar stool? A bar stool sets a stylistic accent next to the counter. Due to the variety of designs, the right stool is available for every style of living – from classic glossy black through futuristic shapes to bright colors. Depending on your taste, the stool can be made of stainless steel, aluminum, plastic or wood. Even with the material of the seat and back of the bar stool fan knows no bounds. Whether easy-care artificial leather, different colored fabrics or even the raw wood, depends on your own preferences.
If the barstool is to be used as a replacement for a chair, a backrest is recommended to make seating more comfortable – ergonomic shapes of the seat also contribute to greater comfort. Important is the height of the bar stool on which the footrest is located. If it does not fit your height, sitting on the stool can be very uncomfortable. It is therefore recommended to check the stool for comfort prior to purchase. Especially practical and versatile are height-adjustable bar stools, which thus adapt to the size of the user.
