The kitchen, for many people, is the heart of the home; the place for cheerful banter over a delicious breakfast, meal or supper. In today’s society, greater emphasis has been placed upon furnishing the home with items which are comfortable, functional and stylish. Breakfast bar stools are quickly becoming the nation’s favourite, available in an array of shapes, shades and sizes. Whether you’re looking to kit out your kitchen work surface or island, there’s bound to be a breakfast bar stool which will complement your kitchen effortlessly.
A potential customer may firstly consider the frame of the product. Some breakfast bar stools are mounted upon a chrome plated steel frame. The chrome finish is ideal for those who desire to have a fresh, sleek look within their kitchen. Alternatively, the muted tones of brushed steel metalwork is also very attractive to people, blending in wonderfully with surrounding pieces of furniture and working superbly with modern appliances and fittings. If you wish to enhance the traditional themes of your home, there are also stools with four legs, with many solid wood items in natural finishes. Breakfast bar heights come to an average of 90cm, and most stools adhere to this, but for those who appreciate having adjustable height, many come with gas lift mechanisms, activated by the use of a handy lever. These allow you to vary the height and spin through 360 degrees and are usually encased within a footrest stem, also useful for those who intend to spend extended periods of time seated.
Once the essentials have been accounted for, a potential customer may look at the design of the seat. There are a multitude of contemporary, chic items, or if you prefer a simple design, a subtly detailed minimalist style stool may be just the candidate. The seat of the stool is finished in a variety of ways. Some seats are draped in smooth faux leather, which can be easily maintained for regular use around the home. If you desire something even more luxurious, there are breakfast bar stools available in real leather. Underneath the seat cover is a pliable dense filling of high-density foam which makes the seat incredibly comfortable. Adding a splash of colour to your kitchen island has never been easier, now that breakfast bar stools come in an array of shades, such as red, yellow, green and purple. Some bar stools have a backrest, or armrests, or even both for extra support when eating food or socialising with others.
No matter what vision you have for your kitchen space or breakfast bar, it is bound to be realised by the potential which spills from the abundance of breakfast bar stools available to consumers today. Designers around the world are now creating pieces which are not only timeless and classy, but bring out the unique identity of a home, without breaking the bank. Introducing breakfast bar stools to your home is sure to be a great investment!
