Designing and fitting in storage spaces for all the things usually needed in the kitchen is no easy task. Lots of things need storage. For example, where will you keep all your plates, the knives, the spice jars and what about all the other items you’ll be needing? You can’t just throw them all in one place. The key to a practical and functional kitchen design is being organized. A pegboard can be a very useful thing in the kitchen. It allows you to store lots of things like pots and pans close at hand. You can also customize it however you want and, for example, add shelves. It’s a relatively easy DIY project.
Even if the bar stool is the only color in the entire neutral space, it can be enough to add fresh life and personality. You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality. Metal has many benefits as a bar stool medium. It is durable, easy to clean, and stylishly versatile. Metal bar stools also tend to be visually lighter-weight than other types of stools, which is definitely something to keep in mind. By their very nature of being wood, wooden frame bar stools tend to carry more visual punch than other materials, which are able to be manipulated for weight-bearing capacities. Wooden frames can be quite versatile, as they look fantastic in a cottage setting as well as provide a lovely earthy contrast in a more contemporary one.
Because bar stools are a taller seating piece, they tend to be noticeable. A glossy modern stool or three can go a long way toward making an entire area feel more contemporary, if that is your aim. Metal, wood, even leather – the combination of the primary materials for industrial style are perfect for a variety of bar stools. If the style of your space happens to be leaning toward industrial already, enjoy the many bar stool options that complement that design. You might be best served by simply gravitating toward the type of bar stool that you love…just as you gravitate toward the variety of treasures you’ve already incorporated into your space. The bar stools will feel right at home. Fabric is definitely one of the easiest ways to bring in color and pattern into a space with bar stools. (Spaces that, typically, may be short on both of those design aspects.) Fabric bar stools tend to be comfortable and pretty, although probably the hardest to clean.
Install a metal bar directly under your cabinets and throw on some S-hooks – viola! You’ve just freed up a couple of “miscellaneous” drawers. You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
