Browse our range of modern and contemporary Bar Stools to find the ideal perch for your kitchen. From real and faux leather seats, to wooden and plastic; gas lift pedestal and fixed height stools with legs, no matter what you are looking for we are bound to have a Bar Stool to fulfill your needs. If you go for a stool with arms or ones that swivel you will need a bit more space.This is because the stools will be wider and ones that move need a certain amount of swivel clearance space between the stools. If short on space choose your bar stools carefully. It’s best to go for a stool without a back rest that can be tucked away. If you need a bar stool to be more than just a perch then you need to consider the most comfortable option your budget will stretch to. So perhaps something in real leather with a back rest and maybe arm rests with a deep seat to give a touch of drama and opulence and turn your bar area into a lounging and dining area also. Bar stools need to be hard wearing if there will be food served at the bar. Think carefully about the material the bar stools are made of so that they can be wiped clean and are easy to maintain.

Families especially are preferring to be together in one big space in a room that multi tasks! Its a communal space where you can cook, watch TV, do your homework, have a drink and a chat!

What are the benefits of a 'gas lift' stool? Gas lift stools are ergonomic and ideal for a breakfast bar where you are catering for all ages. A simple gas lever under the seat area allows you to adjust the stool height simply and quickly. The lever simply opens a valve and allows the air in the tube to either go up or down depending on whether you are putting weight on the stool or not.
