Randi Sampson Bar Stools, 2018-01-19 10:36:43. Metal Bar Stools: Metal bar stools are often available in dozens of finishes. Look for a powder-coated and baked on finish. These finishes are by far more chip and scratch resistant than spray painted finishes. In addition to a more durable surface a powder coated finish is much less likely to be damaged by cleaning products than a painted finish. Fabrics: Both wood and metal bar stools may have countless fabrics to choose from. Look for high quality fabrics that complement your homes decor, as well as a fabric that works well with the finish you have selected AND the style of the bar stool. An Antique Tapestry is a beautiful fabric, but NOT on a silver modernized frame! Synthetic suede fabrics are very durable and easy to clean. They simulate the look and feel of suede, but are far more easy to care for than cotton or other natural coverings. Some manufacturers offer the ability to use your own fabric.

Stools with special features such as tilt-swivel mechanisms, real leather seating, casters or custom heights may cost as much as $400 to $600 each. Some designer hand carved wood stools with multi-step finishes can cost $1,000 to $3,000 each. If your budget allows you, try to upgrade from the RTA bar stools to welded construction. They will last longer, be safer for you and your family, AND should allow you the ability to customize the height, fabric, and finish you want.

When seated at a bar, it is easy to become curious about whats going on behind you. The simple answer to keep guests more comfortable is to allow for swiveling. Sitting on one of these its nothing to spin to face the bar to make your order, and then turn the stool 180° to keep an eye on whats going on behind you. For those with the backyard patio bar, this means while sipping your chilled juice (or whatever libation you favor) you can keep an eye on the kids. Many homeowners have found that in redesigning their homes to better suit them, opening up the kitchen by reducing a wall to a breakfast bar has become popular. For seating at one of these what could possibly be better than a set of breakfast bar stools designed just for this case. Those with a desire for wooden bar stools because of its warmer natural look and feel will find that these are frequently upholstered in leather.

Randi Sampson Kitchen Island, 2018-02-07 11:19:52. A kitchen island is not a new concept, since they were known back in the medieval days when knights were bold. They are assuming increasing popularity in todays kitchens, particularly in larger homes where the kitchen is more than just a small cooking area compressed into an area somewhere between the dining room and the garden shed! Even in smaller kitchens people are examining the possibilities that could arise by clearing away the traditional kitchen cabinets, and replacing them with kitchen islands that offer the same amount of walking space if not more. Here are some ideas for a kitchen island that is not plumbed in to serve a sink, but that offers a great deal of storage space and can effectively make your kitchen appear larger.

Dominique Velez Kitchen Island, 2018-02-07 11:00:05. The design of a kitchen island is completely up to the homeowner. Some of the islands come in a natural wood color. This allows the homeowner to keep the island counter in the natural wood finish or the counter can be stained. Before designing the countertop, the homeowner should decide what look he or she is trying to achieve in the kitchen. A new trendy is to install a island top that is a bright color that doesnt necessarily match the already present color scheme in the kitchen. This makes the kitchen seem more artsy and funky and can make the island really stand out in the room. A homeowner may also decide that he or she wants a traditional kitchen island countertop that matches the rest of the color scheme. He or she will then need to design the kitchen island counter with the same materials and staining as the rest of the cabinetry and countertops in the kitchen.

While food preparation is part of any kitchen, its not the most thrilling sight for others to see. Fortunately, you can create levels of preparation areas underneath the islands surface. This allows you to do whatever slicing, mixing, and other activities you need to do-without everyone seeing the mess. 3. Provide enough clearance. That should be enough room between your island and kitchen cabinets. Specifically, three to four feet is usually adequate. If youre in doubt, provide more space, so that your family will be comfortable around the kitchen island table. In addition, when you put in your island, make sure you measure so that you sure you have enough clearance. This will help prevent mistakes or accidents because there are things that are too close to the kitchen island.
Shari Mueller Kitchen Island, 2018-02-07 11:11:49. Kitchen islands are a design feature that can make your kitchen much more efficient. But, a word of caution: this is one design item where you should definitely consult with a design expert while you are designing your kitchen. Unless you have lots of experience in kitchen design, or interior decorating, it is hard to get a good feel for how an island will work. In order to make a kitchen island work, you need a fairly large kitchen space to ensure enough space around the island to move freely. If your space is large enough to accommodate an island, then a kitchen island will provide more counter space and more storage space. In an extremely large kitchen you can create two separate work triangles, or reduce the size of the main work triangle, increasing the efficiency of your design. To help you with the design element of incorporating an island an experienced designers input will be invaluable. The arrangement of the appliances and service supplies may change when you add an island into your design.

Using custom kitchen islands means having the most appropriate island for your home and kitchen area based on your kitchen space and your needs. Kitchen island ideas take us back to the farmhouse kitchen, even back to medieval times when a large worktable was used to do most of the preparation work. Besides meal preparation, the kitchen can become a gathering area for family and friends if there is enough space. Since so much happens in the kitchen on a regular basis, getting the layout right is important. The kitchen island can serve as an additional eating area, and food preparation can easily be done there. In a large kitchen, the kitchen island can shorten the distances within the working triangle (sink, refrigerator and range or cooktop) and make it more efficient.

This can offer you a lot of choices; it will serve as your food preparation space, a place for your oven, storage and shelves for your utensils. You can also add a breakfast counter on your kitchen island as well. Island-wheel style: This type of island is like a counter but has wheels. This kind is convenient to use because it does not need extra space on your kitchen. Having wheels, there is no difficulty in transferring the island from one place to the other since it is not stationary. However, installing a sink and other appliances is not possible. Kitchen islands have different shapes. Some may have the letter L form. Others may have a square, round, oval or rectangular shape. Either way, you can choose your own style and shape as long as it is convenient and easy for you to use. Aside from that, it is very important that your island should be well lit so that you can work properly in your kitchen. Kitchen islands can be built to suit small kitchens, large kitchens and even can be placed outdoors.

Levels: If you decide to go the smaller-sized route when constructing your island that doesnt necessarily mean that you have to give up surface area. Adding a second level of a different height to your design will give the piece additional functionality. Multiple levels can be used for different functions such as: a place for a cutting board or book shelf, or as a breakfast bar with stool beneath it. These alternative designs can help give your kitchen island a more customized appeal. 3. Add a Sink or Two: Adding kitchen appliances such as a sink to your new kitchen island will give it even more functionality and also serve as a gathering point when entertaining. A sink boosts the usability of any kitchen island by giving you another place to rinse off food and wash dishes. A sink can also be great when entertaining, so your guests can take part in the preparation of the meal without cluttering up your existing counter space around the oven and refrigerator.
