Iron Bar Stools
Nowadays, many kitchens feature islands that also function as breakfast tables or bars. Finding the right kitchen counter or bar stool that matches your kitchen island is important because during times when you have guests at your house, you will at one point or another invite them to congregate in the kitchen to have a bite or two. Wood and metal are the main materials used to make bar stools. For metallic stools wrought iron is mainly used due to its ability to be easily bent into any shape to create eye catching designs. The right kitchen iron bar stools have the ability to transform your kitchen into an inviting dining area.Height
Having a stool than is either too tall or too short can make sitting uncomfortable. In addition, the stools will also look disproportionate. 91 centimetres is the standard height of most kitchen islands and counters. Stools that are 60-66 cm high are the best fit for these type of counters. Dining room iron bar stools are perfect at this height. Standard bar counters have a height of about 1 metre which makes iron bar stools with a height of 76 cm the best fit for such set ups. For bar counters that are unusually high, at least 1.2 metres, extra tall bar stools of between 86 and 91 centimetres are the best bet. It is also important to keep in mind that some modern iron bar stools have designs that allow you to adjust their height to match that of your counter.Style
There are three styles available for iron bar stools. You can choose stools that come with or without a back, with an armrest or without and those with or without swivels. Backless stools are popular because they take up less kitchen space and can be kept hidden beneath the counter when not needed. Iron bar stools with arms are comfortable and offer more support compared to backless stools and are ideal when you want to have a chat with your guests at the counter. However, they are wider which means not many can be fitted across a kitchen counter. Iron bar stools with swivels make it easy for guests turn from side to side while on the counter.Space
Depending on the size of your kitchen island or counter, it is important to know the number of stools that can fit seamlessly without affecting your guests' personal space. The right-sized iron bar stools should leave ample legroom to prevent knees from bumping against the counter.
