Looking for some great upholstered bar stools for your new kitchen?
Then this is the post for you. I’m sharing my 11 favourite upholstered bar stools that look amazing, feel comfy and give your kitchen that wow factor!
Upholstered bar stools can add a sense of style and luxury to any kitchen. Whether that’s a pop of colour to add a little fun. Or a little texture to create a more aesthetic and calming environment.
They are a great way to inject a little personality into your kitchen.
Before you fall in love with a bar stool (and especially before you buy!), however, make sure to 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 in your kitchen.
Top Tip: As a general rule for bar stool seating space, you want to allow 50cm – 60cm per person sat at a breakfast bar.
