Metal is sleek. It’s modern. It’s industrial. Let’s face it–metal is timeless! We love the look of the metal kitchen bar below, which is really a contemporary island with a sink. Two black and chrome stools complete the look and tie in this seating area with the rest of the kitchen. We now turn our attention to the light, bright and vivid. Let’s start with the crisp look of the modern bistro kitchen below, complete with a marble island that doubles as a bar. Earthy wooden stools make it clear that this bistro space is definitely of the contemporary variety. Note the industrial pendant lighting that hangs overhead.
Breakfast is often cited as the most important meal of the day – and for good reason. It’s a jump-starter that provides the fuel you need to make it through your busy morning until it’s time for lunch. If you’re like most, you have just enough time to grab a granola bar or other similar food-on-the-go before heading out the door. However, by creating a cozy breakfast nook in your home you may be more apt to sit and savor your chosen breakfast meal each and every morning.
Our next set of featured images highlights kitchen bars that are anything but straightforward. In fact, they each have that “extra special something” that makes a memorable impression. There’s nothing like a bar with a view! Which is why the kitchen bar below stretches across a large window
Nostalgia is a very funny thing as it can sometimes gloss over the less comfortable and pleasant details and leaves most of us wanting to travel back in time to those so called good ol’ times when it was all jolly and simple. You can bring back your own favorite pub from your college days or that regular hangout you miss so much by recreating a similar atmosphere with your own home bar.
Yellow is often regarded as a color that’s happy and playful, and you can bet that your bar stools will stand out when you choose them in this color. Check out the stools in the first example below from Decoholic. Clever to add some lemons too! Whether you go light green or dark green, yellowish-green or bluish-green, the color just looks fantastic in so many situations. Tiny Me featured some very lovely bright green bar stools in a white kitchen, while Home DSGN shows a modern loft with a touch slightly lighter green for the bar stools at the kitchen island.
Granted there’s not a whole lot you can do to transform a bar stool, but simple tricks like switching out the seat cover every now and again could make all the difference in the kitchen. For summer, you can tie citrus colored cushions to the tops of the stools. And once winter is around the corner, swap out the vibrant colors for some cool, refreshing fabrics that allude to the snowy scene.
