Bar stools are a great way of adding extra seating to your kitchen dining area. They take up little room as they slot nicely under your island or breakfast bar whilst making your kitchen look showroom ready. Bar stools have fast become a major trend in the UK with lots of restaurants and cafes now offering bar style dining in addition to their traditional table seating. The good thing about bar stools is that you can be as simple or as trendy as you like – either way they look great and just like that you’ve added a contemporary touch to your kitchen without even trying.
