How to Choose the Best Bar Stool Finish

Last updated 6 years ago

For most homeowners, kitchen furniture is more than just a place to sit and eat. Their furniture is an extension of the kitchen's style. When you purchase bar stools and other kitchen furniture, remember to choose a finish that complements your kitchen. Here are some tips on how to choose a bar stool finish that will work best in your house.


The first and easiest step when choosing a bar stool finish is to match your new pieces to your existing furniture.  Look at the style, color, material, and finish on your dining room table and chairs, and consider matching your bar stools to these design features. You can't go wrong when you match your new furniture to your old furniture; a metal bar stool will probably clash with a deep mahogany table, no matter how great they look separately. You may decide to make slight variations on an existing theme. For example, try alternating cushion colors but retain the same style and material for the stools’ legs and backs. Don’t forget to look at other features in your kitchen, especially the appliances and cabinets; wooden bar stools can look stunning next to cherry cupboards!


Another option is to use your bar stools as an accent to your current furniture. Pick bar stools that bring a splash of color to an otherwise neutral kitchen or that highlight an accent color already present in your décor. Your bar stools don't have to be an exact match. Instead, they can really pop with interesting visual contrast.


Consider the style of your living room, guest room, and even bedroom furniture. If everything in your home matches, you may want to establish a cohesive theme with bar stools. Consider a mixed set of bar stools if your other furniture is a collection of eclectic, quirky pieces. Try not to overthink your decision. If you were immediately attracted to a certain finish, go for your first choice.
