Comfortable Bar Stools

Buying Guide

Bar stools are some of the cheapest, most convenient and practical pieces of furniture for your kitchen, but many people avoid buying these since they believe them to be uncomfortable. While many bar stools on the market, unfortunately, won't be able to provide you with the level of comfort that you desire, there are many stools which you can find a lot of comfort in and might be just the thing you're looking for. Let's have a look at some of the comfortable bar stool designs which you'll come across.

  • Wooden stools with fabric upholstery

Combining two of the most comfortable and warm materials to bring you comfortable bar stools for the kitchen, fabric and wooden stools should definitely be up for consideration. The legs of the stools and the frame are made from sturdy hardwood or pine, or you may see various shades of wood for the legs depending on the type of wood used. This allows you to choose the shade of wood which best matches the current décor in your kitchen. The actual seat of the stool is upholstered with comfortable fabric and padded well inside to allow you to sit on it for long periods of time. Available in many warm colors, including cream, grey, beige and most colorful pastels, there's something to suit every home in this style.

  • Leather with chrome legs

Ideal for a games room, but also well-suited to a modern kitchen, leather bar stools with chrome legs have a slightly retro feel to them. With a reasonably high back and chrome ring a slight way up the main frame to allow easy access to the stool, this is one of the most comfortable styles you'll see. The leather chair is well-padded and is upholstered to provide maximum comfort, thanks to the sturdy arms on either side which enable the person using the stool to sit back and relax. These bar stools can be paired with a chrome table or breakfast bar, but don't look out of place in a basement bar or games room either.

  • Rounded seat

A feature which instantly makes any type of seating more comfortable is the inclusion of a rounded seat. Having a seat which is slightly rounded puts less pressure on your body, making it more comfortable. When you look at the seat from the front, you'll see a slight dip to allow more comfortable positioning when you sit down. These styles are often seen in a soft padded leather, but you may find them in fabric or wood too. When paired with a high back, you can sit back in the seat and enjoy ultimate comfort.

  • Adjustable bar stools

Many bar stools are rigid and cannot be moved, which is one of the reasons why some people avoid using them in the kitchen. Adjustable bar stools take away this problem since some of them will allow you to adjust the height while also adjusting the angle of the back of the chair. Being able to customize the bar stools to a height and position that you like further enhances the comfort of these chairs. A simple lever or mechanism found underneath the seat enables the users to move the seat higher or lower, making it more adjustable for children, people with back problems and even the fussiest of homeowners.
