Bar Stools - The Growing Household Trend

6th March 2019

It’s no secret that bar stools look good and can be very comfy, but why have they been gaining popularity over the last few years?

As time passes, kitchens naturally become more modern and require decor and furnishings to really finish them off. Central counters (also known as 'islands') are getting used a lot more in kitchens where you cannot use a normal dining chair - the humble kitchen is fast becoming the new heart of dining in peoples homes.

If you have a counter of any kind in your kitchen, getting bar stools will make this area of your kitchen a key focal point and will create an open dining space for you to have friends and family around!

Designs vary greatly with something to suit any location and colour scheme. Probably another reason why they are becoming increasingly popular.

Are Bar Stools The New Kitchen/Diner Trend?

We thought something interesting to share was our Bar Stool sales over the last 5 years because numbers speak for themselves - look at those statistics below... That is a very definite trend!

This is a marked increase year on year with an average growth of around 25%!

Not only do we think a bar stool would look great in your kitchen, but so do the people that bought more than 37,000 last year!

You don’t have to look at our range of bar stools for long before you find one that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also very comfortable and will be the perfect height for almost any kitchen counter.

If not, guess what? You can simply adjust the height with our gas lift bar stools.

Our bar stools are meticulously crafted to perfection and we expect nothing less! With over 300 different shapes and sizes, you’ll be spoilt for choice, from comfortable semi-ergonomic design’s, tailored to suit your body and the way you sit, to static, modern, metal bar stools - we have you covered with whatever design ideas you may have.

Our bar stools come in a wide range of different colours, fitting any concept you have, helping you create a perfect kitchen for yourself and your family.

Bar stools are also popular because of their ease of use. They’re easy to put together and very easy to maintain. They freshen up your kitchen or dining area and can bring out colours in your kitchen.

Many people who buy bar stools live in apartments and don’t always have a dedicated dining area that’s separate to their kitchen. This is where a stool with their kitchen counter will save a lot of space instead of taking up another area to fit a large table and dining chairs in.

The type of bar stool you go for all depends on how your kitchen looks. You may want a padded, gas lift stool but on the other hand, you may want a static plastic or wooden one.

Wooden bar stools would look better in a kitchen that wasn’t too modern but also one that wasn’t too dated - it is possible to make it look out of place.

We believe that bar stools are only going to get more popular as time goes on - A trend that we fully support, and hope you do too!
