Maybe it’s a little more apparent at this time of year, in the thick of the holiday season when so much is happening in the kitchen (and with so many people, to boot!). But kitchen space is invaluable. No matter what style your kitchen is – traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between – and no matter how big it is, maximizing the space you do have is one of the keys of enjoying this holiday season. Saving space is really about making things easier, more organized, and less cluttered. In essence, making the most of not only your space but also the items within your space. Here are some pretty quick and easy, yet totally essential, ideas for you to incorporate into your kitchen. Most of them are so simple, you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of them sooner!
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.
