The breakfast bar table and stools stool is fantastic for the kitchen and kitchen/diner and with a great range of choice, you are sure to find something for your kitchen to go with your reclaimed wood furniture..
Neutral, yet warm shades
Clearly, a kitchen needs to be functional and practical, and for most of us, that means opting for a neutral yet warm backdrop.
The Martley chair in ivory is a perfect choice. The neutral colour of the bar stool is great for pulling the whole kitchen together, promoting symmetry in the kitchen.
By keeping the worktop and backsplash in the same colour, materials and texture, the whole room will come together to create a beautiful room.
Maintain the feeling of lightness with very light, dove grey walls. If you are loving the current trend for brass finishes, then this is the ideal scheme for you. Opt for brass taps and fittings, alongside copper industrial style light fittings to add to and bring out the warmth of the shades in the kitchen.
Black bar stools
There is something dramatic and exciting about black bar stools at a breakfast bar table.
Black makes a fantastic accent colour in the kitchen. Match the drama of the Kempley bar stool in black with the same coloured kitchen units (or a dark, dramatic shade of navy or even forest green) with brown accents colour to provide the bridge between the dark colours and the lighter wall colours.
Steer clear of white – although the beauty of a monochrome scheme in the kitchen is not to be underestimated - but if you don’t want the kitchen looking stark, the light mushroom colour on the walls will work a treat.
Grey and taupe delight
There is nothing that says you can’t have different coloured and textures in the kitchen which is exactly what you get with cream bar stools.
The Longdon bar stool, available in taupe with beautiful black wood legs and frame is ideal for the kitchen where you want a style that has the ‘something different, but not over the top’ look.
In fact, the decadence in this scheme is more than a hint. We love the neutral shading, just as we covet the detailing of the upholstered bar stools, perfect for the island kitchen bar table.
Alongside the taupe bar stool complete with amazing stud detailing, the cabinet door colours can be as dark and dramatic as you like. Black is a great starting point we think, ditching the shiny look for the matte, chalky finish on cabinet doors looks fabulous against the grey wall colour.
Maintain the grey through a marble-effect backsplash but for an accent colour throw in something different, like a copper finish to bowls on worktops as well as light fitting finishes and the like.
For too long, we think the bar stool or chair has been seen as a wooden stool on which no one wants to linger for long. They are comfortable seats and in a kitchen/diner, they are perfect for allowing people to gather and talk whilst food is prepared. Isn’t it time you took another look at the ‘humble’ leather of fabric bar stools?
