If you’re thinking that bar stools are only suitable for bars or pool halls, think again. I’ve recently completed a new project in the family home where I customized our kitchen to great effect. If you don’t believe then check out some of the photos below which I’ve aggregated from elsewhere online – all showing how a set of bar stools can really transform a living space.
Fixed Bar Stools
This idea comes courtesy of Elena Travis at the Funky Chair bar stools retailer website – she asked me to let my readers know about her own bar stools website – more than happy to do so! In this photo you can see some fixed bar stools in a red color. These would more suit a bar, but if you want your kitchen to actually look and feel like a bar then they are a great shout. Fixed bar stools tend to be more expensive than standard ones to consider that before making too many plans.
Bar stools have many great uses around the home, and can turn a room into a stylish seating area for guests. There are many reasons why you should decorate your home with bar stools. Here’s just a few of the reasons why you need to buy bar stools right now.
Kitchen Bar Stools
Bar stools can be used in almost any room. You can keep them in your kitchen or dining areas for meals. They can be kept in the basement or games room for a drinks station during parties and games. They can easily be moved from room to room, unlike bulky living room furniture. You can set them up in the bedroom if you wish to have a little hideaway in there.
Particularly useful if you share your home with room mates, but don’t always feel like socializing in the early morning. Another great use for them is in the bathroom, particularly in the morning, when you’re still sleepy. You can sit on one and do your makeup. This is also a handy idea for those with back injuries, as they’ll provide a bit of support, while you get ready in the morning.

One of the best reasons to buy bar stools is for the comfort of your home. If you lack a lot of space, you may be trying to eat your meals on the couch, which can get a bit messy at times. Setting up bar stools around your kitchen counter, or a nook, or buying a special matching bar table will increase the comfort of your home. You’ll feel more relaxed when you actually have a special spot in your home to eat meals, as well as a cool spot to entertain your friends.
Bar stools are compact, so they’ll fit into almost any space. When not in use, they can be tucked under a matching bar table, or under the overhang of a countertop. Some can be stacked and placed in the corner, or against the wall, giving you more walking space in your room. In a pinch, you can even use them with your dining room table.
Bar stools can be added to a room for ambiance. They come in a wide range of natural and man-made materials, plus a variety of colors and design options. You can find almost any style to enhance the interior design of your room. If you find one of your rooms is missing something, bar stools could provide that welcoming touch.
Price ranges for bar stools can be anywhere from $30 for a cheap department store model, to hundreds of dollars for chrome finishes with genuine leather padded cushions, arm rests and back support. You can find bar stools in your budget range at any local furniture store. Just remember to times it by two or four when shopping for your stools, as you’ll want to buy more than one.
There are many reasons why you’d wish to purchase bar stools for your home, but the main one is that they’re so versatile that you can easily move them from room to room, as they provide a dash of character to your home.
