For years, I dreamed of the look I wanted in my kitchen. I have worked very hard choosing every item and so far I am very happy with all of my decisions.
As you can see above, I am still using two temporary wood stools. They are functional for the kids to sit there but they don't go with my overall plan.
I feel like I am constantly online searching and gathering different options for my kitchen. Take a look at some of my ideas below and feel free to let me know what you think!
By the way, some of the links to the stools below are 'affiliate links'. Which means if you click over and purchase the stool, I will make a small percentage off the sale with no additional cost to you.
Let's start looking at the latest group of stools I gathered up!
I still like the idea of a backless stool so I can push it under the counter when not in use. We currently have basic round wood ones but I like the idea of cushion...
I am also thinking it might be nice to swivel so a cushion and swivel might be a nice option...
Then again, I could go with a white seat to get that look. Many of you have commented in the past how you like a back on your counter stool...
Not only does the one above have a back but it also has a nice metal footrest to put your feet on. You just know my boys would manage to scuff up a wood footrest.
Doesn't this stool look luxurious though?
The one above might be too sophisticated for my family. It does look comfy though!
This one actually fits our family's lifestyle a little better..,
Yeah, you know those boys would be spinning away on that.
Or even this one which isn't as wide at the bottom...
If I am going to go with an industrial look, these might work as well...
I like the way the tops are wood so you don't have to sit directly on cold metal.
But if I am going for wood and industrial, why not throw a back on and do something like this...
I have saved tons of inspiration photos of stools like this and they look really nice in my type of kitchen. They also remind me of the "Fixer Upper Style" which I just love! (Don't we all?!)
One of my original ideas for the counter stools involved something like this though...
I have seen many variations of these chairs but the ones above swivel. That might work well with my island since there will be three stools in a row.
Whatever I choose, I really need to get moving on my decision. These tiny-seated wooden things are just not cutting it for me with my morning tea routine.
And on top of that - today I am having to stretch out to rest my knee.
I would like to tell you a glamorous story of a knee injury while skiing but no, that is not the case. Sure, we took the family to Vermont and skied all weekend. The conditions were not ideal this time with slush on Friday, icy patches on Saturday and limited trails open. But we all managed to ski our best on probably our last weekend up there for the season. My husband and I congratulated ourselves for not getting any injuries....Then I went to feed Rosie this morning and tripped into the closet, smashing my knee into the corner of the wall. Apparently, I am not as coordinated as I gave myself credit for - I can barely walk now...just fabulous.
But anyway, back to the counter stools. With all these beautiful options out there I am having such a hard time deciding! I guess with the way my knee feels now, I will have plenty of time to sit and decide!
What are your thoughts on these counter stools?
