Different Ways to Use Bar Stools

August 21st, 2013

When decorating your home, it’s great when you can purchase items that you can use for more than one purpose. Bar stools fall into this category, and believe it or not, these practical seats can be used in places other than the bar. They’re also a great way to utilize space. If you have an extra bar stool lying around in the garage, then these home decorating ideas are for you.

Kitchen Counter

The kitchen counter is a great place for an unused bar stool! A couple of bar stools in the kitchen not only adds style to your décor, but also gives you a place to rest when you’ve been standing for hours preparing dinner. Ask your kids to accompany you in the kitchen as you finish cooking dinner, and let them do their homework on the kitchen counter for some mother-and-child bonding.

Breakfast Bar
