Barstools might not be your first thought when it comes to a kitchen, however they can be a great statement piece or design element. Kitchen islands are arguably one of the most coveted features in a new kitchen, from extra counter space, to creating a more open concept kitchen as well as providing extra seating for guests and family, kitchen islands are found in most new construction homes and are often added to kitchens that are being renovated. In addition to choosing your countertops, cabinetry, and picking your sink faucets and hardware, one thing that many people overlook during their kitchen remodel is the type of bar stools that will sit around the island.

Choosing Barstools for Your Kitchen Island

One of the first decisions you should make is if you want a backless or backed bar stool, as this helps narrow down your choices drastically.

Once you’ve decided if you want to go for backed or backless barstools, there are still many different decisions that need to be made. Are you wanting to get barstools with cushions and fabric/upholstery? Metal? Wood? Much like with the backless and backed options, there are a few pros and cons when it comes to choosing the material of your barstools.
