Because a bar just isn’t complete without a bar stool. It’s like the classic PB&J. It doesn’t happen without the J. We can’t live in a world without complete and happy endings – it just isn’t right. Basically that’s why bar stools were invented. Okay, we can’t confirm that, but it’s the story we’re going with and we’re sticking to it.
Bar stools offer a lot to the look of a well designed kitchen and they actually serve a purpose. They give you place to plant your butt while you use that bar you had to have built into your kitchen island.
Another great advantage of the good ol’ bar stool is its ability to easily change the style or look of the kitchen. No remodeling or expensive projects involved, simply pick out your new stools and take out the old ones. Done and done.
Get inspired to bring new ideas into your kitchen with these lovely pictures featuring some beautifully designed and decorated kitchens complete with bar stools as well as plenty of envious design details.
We spotted the Akron Round Counter Stool in the latest Country Living! We found the Akron Stool nestled perfectly under a kitchen island begging for us to come sit down. This stool is a great addition to the kitchen that’s made with reclaimed wood and has an iron frame. The wood, metal materials create a combination that offers great texture to the kitchen space. The stools also compliment an island (pictured nicely above) or a bar perfectly as well. Interested in picking up some bar stools for your kitchen? Find the Akron Round Counter Stool on our online store here!
Look what we spotted in this month’s Country Living magazine! While flipping through we came across the “Blue Ribbon Kitchen” featuring the metal electric arrow sign with lights! This bright and bold kitchen is decorated with all kinds of fun pieces and filled with lots of charm. Pick up this month’s Country Living to see more of the kitchen, but head over to our web store to buy the metal electric arrow sign here and add it to your kitchen today! Happy Friday!
The kitchen is one of the most used spaces in the home, so why not show it some love? When it comes to painting your kitchen you should be smart about it. Ask yourself questions like do I really need to paint the whole kitchen? Or can I bring my kitchen back to life with just a quick splash of paint? Maybe all you need to do is paint the island or a few cabinets and your kitchen is revamped. Maybe you need to paint the whole thing and if it’s time then it’s time. There’s no reason to do a full overhaul with paint if you don’t need to. It’s a hassle and a headache waiting to happen. Usually a little paint will go a long way.
Your color choices should reflect the space and the natural feel of it. If your kitchen gets a lot of natural light you may want to choose colors that absorb the light instead of colors that will reflect it. This way you can actually enjoy your kitchen instead of wearing your sunglasses inside or always having the curtains drawn. The same goes with a naturally dark kitchen. If your kitchen doesn’t get that much natural light you might want to go with lighter, airy colors so it doesn’t feel so dark or small. If it’s time for an update, really think about it and plan your painting before you try to tackle the entire space.
