To have a nice island or snack bar, you’ll need different seating than traditional dining areas, namely, kitchen stools. The stools you’ll want depends on your style, the size of the space, and the functionality required. Happily, you can now pick from an amazing array of stools. Let’s take a look at a few.
Our kitchens aren’t just popular because that’s where all the yummy food is. There’s so much more to our kitchens than that.
The kitchen is where we commune, it’s where we nourish more than just our bodies. We meet our loved ones there and touch base about seemingly trivial things like our progress on that big project at work, or the funny thing that happened in math class, or how hard Coach was at practice today. We share the things that seem fleeting but are the very fabric that makes up our lives.
Sitting around the table or the island, or working at the counter, we are growing, learning, laughing. It’s the room that greeted us when we got home from school, and still does when we come home from work. It’s the room where we prepared holiday feasts. It’s the room where friends lingered longer.
Over the last few decades, the kitchen has become a major architectural feature. As families gravitate toward an open concept, one that fosters more time together, kitchens are becoming larger, often including snack bars and islands.

Thanks for sharing Kane! I don’t know about you but although they aren’t a must, I think stools complete the overall look of a kitchen. Which ones are your favorite by the way? 🙂

The Scrap Wood one at the very top, and the Swing Out Wood Kitchen Stool, are probably the two I’d want in my house. =)
