Looking for some great Scandinavian style bar stools for your new kitchen? I’ve listed my 11 favourite bar stools that have that well designed, classic Scandi look!
Over the years I’ve been designing kitchens I see more and more clients creating open-plan kitchen/living/dining spaces. A trend I can’t see going away anytime soon!
This open living often includes a social seating area within the kitchen. Be that an island or peninsula, it incorporates a more informal and relaxed area to sit, eat, chat and work.
With this, comes the need for bar stools to complete the look. With so many options available, finding the right style that compliments your kitchen and living space can be a bit of a minefield. So in this post, I’m focusing on the Scandinavian ‘Scandi’ inspired look.
Before you buy, make sure you measure the space you have available. Check the overall height, seat height and width of the bar stools so you know they will fit comfortably.
Top tip: As a general rule for bar stool seating space. You want to allow 50cm – 60cm per person sat at a breakfast bar.
