Whether you're going for a traditional look and feel or you want to channel those retro vibes with a '50s diner style set up, nothing beats having the comfort and convenience of your very own home bar. Take a look at our comprehensive selection of bar stools to find the ideal option for you. We have you covered with a huge range of great-looking designs - and from a practical point of view, your home bar just won't be complete without them! When they're not in use they'll tuck neatly under your home bar so you can still make the most of the space you have available - and they're the ultimate home addition when it comes to having friends and family over to socialise, giving you the ideal spot to catch up over a drink in complete comfort. Why not take a look at our selection of wooden bar stools? Natural wood is always warm and welcoming but our styles vary greatly. You might opt for a classic round bar stool or choose a stylish faux leather seat with wooden legs to bring things bang up to date - why not channel Scandi-cool and go for a bar stool with tapered legs made from light wood?
You've come to the right place for a great selection of black bar stools as well. These are definitely the way to go if you want to give your home bar a bit of an edge, particularly if you opt for a design which also features high gloss chrome for a look that's stylish and contemporary. Some of our options are a great way to go for a shot of vintage '50s style too!
Breakfast Bar Stools
Lots of our bar stools will work just as well in the kitchen as they do in a home bar area in your living or dining room - take a look at our two tone wooden designs to achieve country kitchen style, while chrome can't be beat for a contemporary finish in any modern kitchen. When it comes to the latest kitchen trends a breakfast bar is up there at the very top of the list. Not only do they look sleek and stylish, but they provide a handy extra surface space for a quick bite to eat during the working week. Why not check out our breakfast bar ideas for a little inspiration?
If you don't have a built-in breakfast bar in your kitchen then why not consider going for a breakfast bar table and chairs instead? Slim and space-saving, these won't take up too much valuable room in your kitchen or breakfast room - and if you're part of a smaller household or you live in a compact apartment then you might opt for one of these rather than having a kitchen table at all! Consider sleek glass and a metal frame for an addition to your home that's thoroughly contemporary. A matching pair of bar stools with padded seats and elongated backrests will ensure comfort and style in equal measure - and they tuck neatly under the bar table for a clean and minimalist finish.
Measuring Bar Stools
Apart from choosing what colour and style you will go for, measuring the height of where you want to put your stool is also really important, so that it tucks neatly under the worktop, counter or taller bars. Adjustable height bar stools work in a range of situations but for all others, check the height to make sure it fits.
Short height bar stools: 40-60cm
Counter height bar stools: 61-71cm
Bar height stools: Above 72cm
Making a Home Bar
To make the most of your home bar it goes without saying that you'll want to have guests over for a drink from time to time. Make sure you've got all you need to entertain in style and starting by taking a look at our comprehensive range of quality glassware. From single pieces right through to 12 piece sets you'll find a great selection of options - and there's something to suit all occasions, whether you're after wine or gin glasses, soda or champagne glasses. You'll even find handy sets which include multiple glass types to cover all bases! And don't forget some coasters for people to put their drinks down without damaging your bar surface!
Perhaps it's a drinks trolley you're after? You've come to exactly the right place to make sure you're the host with the most - and we have you covered with both two tier and three tier designs. Chrome and glass is a stylish choice that's sure to impress your guests, and because our trolleys are mounted on castors they're a breeze to move about - and much easier and less risky than carrying around a heavy drinks tray too! If you're mixing cocktails then three tier is the way to go so you've got space for your various ingredients.
Setting the Breakfast Bar
When it comes to dining, it's important to get the table setting just right. Shop our selection of stylish placemats for starters - these are a must not because they look great but because they'll ensure the surface of your table is protected from scratches or spillages. Why not go for a leather effect placemats for effortless modern style - and there's the added bonus that they're wipe clean too!
Perhaps you have wooden dining chairs? These never fail to look stunning with a beautifully pared back and elegant appearance, but if you want to make sure that everyone is sitting comfortably then it's definitely worth having a set of seat pads to hand. How about neutral grey for an on-trend shade that looks wonderful against warm natural wood?
