How to Recognize a Trendy Kitchen Stool

A trendy kitchen stool can look very different to everyone as our opinions on what “trendy” is can differ hugely! But there are some key characteristics that feature in all trendy kitchen stools. Typically this will be a decorative element to the design, such as a metal finish to legs and/or detailing, an upholstered seat, or a stylish wood seat or legs. These elements could be used together, or individually on a kitchen stool to make it trendy! 

Fun Facts:

Stools are one of the oldest pieces of wooden furniture, dating back to the 10th-14th centuries! Typically these were very basic wooden stools used by craftsmen and artisans.

Nowadays, counter and bar stools are standard seating featured in kitchen designs and many hospitality environments (restaurants, and bars).

The key to choosing a kitchen stool for your home is to ensure that the seat height is appropriate for where the piece will be (either bar or counter height), and to choose a style that you love. You could use finishes that are already featured in the space, like brass, nickel, matte black, etc. Or choose a contrasting finish to create an element of surprise! It’s important to consider how long someone will be sitting at the kitchen island as to whether back support or an upholstered seat is required.
