Add Style To Your Kitchen With Our Bar And Counter Stool Selections

bar and counter stoolIt’s easy to create a kitchen bar and add a bar and counter stool set if you don’t have the space for tables and chairs. First you must measure your space and decide how a bar can be mounted. Draw a reference line on the wall to mark the position of the bar. Cut a piece of birch plywood for the top to desired size, and four 1” x 3” strips of aspen to trim the edges and create a back splash. Sand, stain and add protection with polyurethane.

In kitchen and home bars, commercial bars, restaurants and game rooms, bar stools everywhere serve an important purpose. Bar stools come in a variety of styles, shapes, materials, sizes, fabrics and prices. When buying, decide how many are required and of what durability, and whether the bar stool is meant for the kitchen, outdoors, bar or game room. A suitable seat height and backrest should be considered if children are going to use them in the kitchen.
