Decorate the ordinary kitchen interior with bright bar stools – turn the utilitarian element into an accent piece


The kitchen of most people is the heart of the house. And today the modern kitchen interior can not be imagined without bar stools. These pieces of furniture, located next to the island, are an ideal place for a comfortable pastime with family members, while your home cook prepares something for a hasty rush.

Elements of the kitchen area are often neutral tones – black granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, wooden or white painted cabinets, tiles like in the subway. Choosing a rich tone for high stools, you turn them into a bright accent, animating a restrained atmosphere.

Below we propose to look at the photos of the projects in which there are stylish bar stools. Different color solutions are presented in the order in which the colors of the rainbow go.

And here is another example of the use of such seats next to the island. Here, this color solution works as an accent. The color of an orange is chosen for a more modern interior styling. The bright shade dilutes the discreet kitchen design, but at the same time does not look sharp alongside the glitter of stainless steel and the fashionable wooden cabinets.

Before you buy a chair for your kitchen table or island, do not forget to measure the height from the floor to the countertop, to make sure that there will be enough room for your knees.


These stunning bar stools are likely to become my favorites, and not just because the chosen color is one of my favorites. It is a very unexpected solution for classical rural chairs. Violet elements give the situation a slightly bohemian look.

I was always sure that the chairs should fit in the interior according to the color scheme, but it turned out that if you buy bright chairs they will add their zest to the overall picture and significantly refresh the whole situation in the room. I am very impressed by the high, bar stools, they are very comfortable, practical and do not take up much space in the room.

Bar stools today can perfectly fit into the interior of the kitchen, despite the fact that there are a variety of models and they are easy to choose a certain style. Often, where there is a small kitchen, does not put a large dining table, and make of the working area and dining and it turns out that only high chairs resemble bar.
