Having a little old world in Italy in your kitchen can give it an elegant but comfortable feel and there is no better way to accentuate your Tuscan kitchen decor than with old bar stools. Now I'm not talking about buying some uncomfortable old pallets from the 17th century - I'm talking about new bar stools in an old world style.
Bar stools add some informativeness to the kitchen and everyone loves to eat a light meal or snack when lying on a stool. They are perfect for afternoon guests and for the children to do their homework. Not only that, but if you choose them carefully, they can act as a decorative element that improves your overall decor.
When choosing bar stools in the old world, you want the ones that match the colors and theme of your Tuscan kitchen decor. Is your kitchen more on the rustic side? Then choose wooden pallets with a swivel chair. Is it more elegant? Then you may want to forge or bend iron stools. If you have a fabric chair, make sure you get a color and pattern that matches the room - most barstool stores offer a selection of fabrics and you can easily get something that matches your décor.
The other consideration when choosing bar stools is the height and number of stools you need. This depends on the size of the table or bar that you will use the pallets to sit at.
The general rule of thumb is that you need 10 to 13 inches between the chair's chair and the bottom of the counter. This is what a person will need to feel comfortable sitting at the bench. Of course, it is not practical to take the pallets home and measure them, so what you do is measure from the bottom of the counter to the floor and then when you are in the store you can measure from the top of the stool to the floor and subtract the two digits to find out if the stools fit perfectly!
Another thing to keep in mind when buying bar stools. Although you may be tempted to buy as many as you can so that you can seat more people, there is actually an optimal number of stools that can fit at a table or bar. You want to make sure there is 25 to 30 inches of space from the middle of 1 stool to the middle of the next. This is what will be most comfortable for your guests, so it is best to buy the number of stools that allow this place.
Buying bar stools in the old world that match your Tuscan kitchen decor can be a great way to get good seating that contributes to the décor of your kitchen. Just follow the rules above and you will be sure to find pallets that fit perfectly in your Tuscan kitchen.
