Kitchen Island with Seating

Updated on April 24, 2013

We all agree that there's no place quite like home. So why not make some improvements to your kitchen and bring your friends together right in your own home bar by way of an island with a set of kitchen bar stools?

You can drink all you want and not have to worry about driving home or grabbing a cab when you have your own kitchen island with seating at home. Home improvements will involve spending money but - all the money is worth it when the outcome is great.

As long as you have bought the right furniture and equipment for you kitchen, then all the money will be well spent. Featured below are the five best bar stools on the market - each one both practical and attractive in its own right.

These are the best contemporary kitchen bar stools. Invite your friends anytime of the day to share a coffee sat upon one of these stools from Winsome Wood. They have an air-lift design for height convenience. The seat lifts up to 25 to 30 inches in height. The overall look is minimalist and edgy, with an easy care black faux leather cover.

Equally good for counter top seating or around a kitchen island - though they're not recommended for seating young children upon. They're a good looking pair of contemporary swivel bar stools and the price is for two - a pretty awesome bargain.

Single Saddle Seat Stool

This the best backless bar stool on offer and the saddle seat and wooden manufacture gives them a real rustic yet unique appeal. The wood is solid beech and the color matte black, the design being robust legs and a contoured seat. Some assembly is required though it's minimal and instructions and tools are supplied.

They're available in tow heights - 24 or 28" so whichever you choose is the size you'll get - they're non-adjustable. Definitely a looker, and currently on offer at a great discount, the single saddle seat is a handsome looking bar stool, simple, clean lines and will work with a variety of kitchen styles and designs.

Windsor Counter Stool

This is best classic kitchen bar stool, which can be used as as a bar stool or as a counter stool. It has a wide, comfortable back which seems to be perfect for getting the day started with your morning coffee. Although it lacks the usual backless style of other bar stools, this one offers more comfort to the user due to the high, wide back piece.

It's a solid wood manufacture and has a natural finish. Perfect for homes that have a vintage or country style of decor, it's a solid chair for a great price. Would look even better if a seat pad was placed upon it - which would also add more comfort.

Winsome Wood Assembled 24-Inch Cherry Finish Kitchen Stools, Set of 2

This pair of stools are the best wood kitchen bar stools and they're classically styled and a solid wood manufacture - great for indoor or outdoor use. The finish is cherry and the shape of the top provides a comfortable seat. They can be used countertop or bar stool - they're practical, simple yet elegant. 

For the price, they're a great budget buy and they are pretty versatile. They're sturdy, will stand up to a lot of use and are easily transported outdoors if you're having a cookout or similar and need some extra seating space. Good looking pair, worth the investment and years of use in them.

Set of 2 Satin Black Finish Metal Swivel Bar Stool

If you have a contemporary kitchen, this pair of metal kitchen bar stools are the ones for you. They're not adjustable but that doesn't detract from the usefulness or comfort. There's a place to rest your feet and the color lends itself to a myriad of kitchen decor styles. Some assembly is required and some might find the holes and fittings a bit fussy but once done, they're a solid build.

Like the previous pair, they're a great budget buy yet manage to look more expensive than they really are. They're stylish, comfortable and will work around a bar, countertop or kitchen island - and will work just as well outdoors.
