2021 Barstools: Backless Is Taking A Back Seat

With 2020 quickly coming to a close, many homeowners are happily putting the year in the past. One of the best ways to start fresh is to give your home an update. Although home renovations and upgrades quickly become expensive, there are also other ways to keep to a budget. For example, upgrading your counter or barstools can quickly transform any space while keeping the budget under control.

If your home could use a fresh new feel, here are a few considerations sure to provide the change you require.


Backless versus backed bar stools

While many people think of bar stools as a backless seating option, 2021 is pushing the norm. With backed seating making a huge appearance, people can expect comfort, style, and most of all more options than ever before. However, with so many options, one is now faced with the choice of deciding which stool is best for their lifestyle.


Adjustable Lifts

A popular option for the office, adjustable height bar and counter stools are also making their way into homes. With stylish seating in a variety of colors and fabrics, these seats make finding the perfect match a breeze. No matter the counter height or the aesthetic of your home, you can have confidence that these stools will provide the some of the greatest levels of comfort for you and your guests!


Leather or Fabric

Another benefit of a backed stool is the opportunity to customize your look and feel. Leather stools provide a sophisticated and sleek look while offering easier cleaning and maintenance. On the other side, fabric stools provide a world full of customization options. From solid colors to the trendiest patterns, fabric stools can also be upholstered down the road to keep a fresh look. However, fabric will require more care and maintenance as spills and rips are more common.

No matter which material you chose, be sure to ask about added protection to get the most life out of your investment.


Understand your style

On the topic of style, knowing what will “fit” into your home is an imperative part of the process. For example, if you have a very modern home, adding counter stools crafted with a floral country fabric won’t work out as you hope. Before you even begin the process of shopping, step back and take a look around your home. What is the overall vibe and style? Stick to it!

Unless, of course, you are in the process of redecorating for an entirely new look!
