Breakfast bars–they’re not just for breakfast! In fact, these handy spaces are often seen as a bonus when it comes to extra seating. The perfect place for guests to sit and keep the chef company during gatherings and an ideal spot for a casual meal, breakfast bars are a true decorating perk. But how do you punctuate them with style? Perhaps it’s with the perfect set of kitchen stools. Or maybe it involves emulating the look of your favorite restaurant bar!
We begin with wooden bars, a popular choice given the warmth they add to a room. How do you accessorize them? There are countless options… Below we see a special project called the Zero Energy House. Note the streamlined look of the wooden bar, as well as the choice to pair it with white padded seats to create a contrast of dark and light.
Determine the desired height – First of all, you need to determine the height of the bar chair or stool you wish to introduce to the space. Generally, the height varies between 24 inches and 30 inches. According to the experts, the ideal height of a stool or chair should be 10 inches lower than the height of the counter or the table. Consider comfort and style – Try and select chairs and stools with a design that matches your comfort and style. The options you may choose from includes chairs with high back, low back, without or with arms, 360 rotating capacity or those with partial swivel. In addition, also ensure that the stool you choose also matches well with the furniture, upholstery and look of the room.
