Before we address the style of each kitchen stool, we can pinpoint some macro distinctions. The first type includes high stools with and without a footrest: the former are definitely more comfortable, as they provide maximum stability while you are seated: just what you need when you are still a little sleepy at breakfast.
The second difference lies in the presence of a backrest, a feature which mainly distinguishes kitchen stools from bar stools, which in the majority of cases do not offer a backrest.
Lastly, the last macro category identifies stools fitted with armrests, grouping together a series of seats designed to provide more support, ideal for seating children.
If you’re looking for a high chair for an island or high table with a modern style, our suggestion is to focus on the resting base, choosing for instance coloured metal, or on the seat, perhaps picking velvet, in order to put together a stool with an attractive look, capable of brightening up and transforming any kitchen into a warm and ultra-chic setting.
Did you have a simpler, more minimalistic corner in mind? There is nothing stopping you from choosing plain coloured or all-metal kitchen stools, for an industrial design that does not compromise comfort, or with a wooden seat, ideal for giving your interiors that Scandinavian touch.
