This is a 2024 roundup of 20 Great Bar Stools to Update Your Look. Are you remodeling or just want to refresh your kitchen with new bar counter stools?
Usually, I search for counter height since that’s more prevalent right now with kitchen islands but many of these come in bar height.
One of our solid wood barstools (that we bought 18 months ago from CB2) broke and they have been discontinued. The lack of durability is disappointing! So, I’m researching abar stools that we can mix with our existing ones…if we decide to do that, as well as the best new bar stools with a fresh modern look.
Or we may just deal with only having three. What would you do?
Bar and Counter Stools To Update Your Look
Below are in all different price ranges. I’m noticing that a lot of the new stools include texture like rattan or performance fabric or both! Brass, iron, wood and leather seats are also popular.
Backless and Low Back Counter-height Stools and Bar-height Stools
Backless stools are a great alternative if you don’t want stool backs blocking a view. Some of these can give a modern feel, coastal or traditional clean line look.
What do you think of using two of #9 (wood and cushion seat in leather) in the center and the existing ones on the ends of the island? The problem is though that this stool height is almost an inch shorter.
We purchased #2 in white to give the outdoor kitchen a fresher feel. These have held up well.
Kitchen Stools With Backs For Optimal Comfort
A backrest and footrest is nice if you spend leisurely meals at the kitchen counter. Most of these upholstered stools have performance fabric. Those with a metal frame can actually feel lighter to move. #4 below has a swivel.
