Bench Bar Stools Take a Stand in the Kitchen
It's high time these stylish seats get noticed — with both coziness and practicality, bench bar stools are a natural choice in the kitchen
It can be difficult to find ways to cozy up a kitchen. Kitchens are filled with utilitarian pieces of equipment that don't necessarily warm up the space. Paint color and accessories get things going in the right direction, but have you ever considered the impact a bar stool can make? See how an alternative bar stool design can add warmth and whimsy to everyone's favorite room in the house.
Adding bench bar stools to this elegant kitchen instantly makes the room feel more relaxed. If you're worried about the durability of white upholstery, use an easily cleaned material like vinyl to help your benches stand the test of time.
Even sleek, modern penthouses want to be comfortable. The bench added to the end of this center island makes the kitchen feel more approachable and will have guests vying for a spot close to the chef.
Adding a bench to this already inviting kitchen creates more seating and brings another great hue into the fresh color palette.
Flanking this center island table with two bench bar stools doubles the seating capacity and brings comfort through the lush upholstery.
Incorporating an unexpected piece in the kitchen, like this long antique bench, instantly makes the room feel more approachable and can show another side of your personality.
Creating a bench out of two old barstools is a DIY project that will enable one more little body to see what's happening during dinner prep. Adding a cushion would be a great way to inject some pattern to the room and make the seat more comfortable.
These gorgeous slipcovered bar stools make for a cozy seat and are a breeze to clean.
If you aren't ready to add a bench bar stool to your center island, consider adding a window seat in the kitchen to add comfortable seating, pattern and personality.
