11 Best Wooden Bar Stools – Ideal For Your Kitchen Island

Best Wooden Bar Stools

Looking for some lovely wooden bar stools for your new kitchen?
Then this is the post for you. I’m sharing my 11 favourite wooden bar stools that have a strong, natural and timeless look!

Wooden bar stools bring softer, natural materials into your kitchen. They also add a little texture to create a more aesthetic and calming environment.

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.
