Recreate the roaring ‘20s, with your own glamourous home bar or grab inspiration from the ‘50s with a classic diner, right in the comfort of your own home. Bar stools are adaptable for all themes, but they help to make the most of your space, tuck away neatly and keep it interesting. As they come in a range of colours and styles, and even materials from classic wooden to contemporary metal, they will provide your room with more than just somewhere to sit.
Home Bar Stools
If you’re partial to a Sidecar or you love your Martini shaken, not stirred, then having a home bar is a great way to wind down on a Friday night. It’s even better when you are entertaining as they are flexible and create a more relaxed feel. Faux leather bar stools create a luxury feeling, and bar stools with metal legs give an industrial vintage feel. Swivel stools are a great option for your home bar allowing your guests to chat in large groups. Make sure you have extra cocktail glasses on hand because once the word is out, your friends will not want to leave. Give your party an exclusive, dining-club feel by serving aperitifs on serving platters. All home bars need storage, so having a few stackable wooden wine racks behind the bar will help keep everything organised.
Breakfast Bar Stools
Step out of the 1950’s Grease Lightning set and into your home with a kitchen diner breakfast bar. Compliment this theme with retro looking gas lift bar stools in classic colours like red, black and white. Adjustable height stools will help when the kids fancy a milkshake, so there is less chance of spillage.

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
