Kitchen Stools Can Help Bring the Family Together

Did you know that October is National Eat Better, Eat Together month? If not, now you do. Although eating better seems to be a constant buzz in today’s society, eating together can be a bit more of a challenge. Let’s face it; New Englanders are busy people. We are known for always being on the go and wanting things done yesterday. However, taking the time each day to slow down and be with the ones that mean the most is imperative to good health.

So how can Chair Fair help you out? Kitchens tend to be the gathering spot for families after a busy day out and about. Whether you’re coming home from work, or the kids are arriving back from school; kitchens are where we convene. With the right kitchen stools, you can create an inviting atmosphere that people want to hang out around. Here at Chair Fair, we have the selection of stools for any style and any island. Here are just a few of our favorites:


Pops of color

One of the quickest ways to grab the attention of anyone passing through the kitchen is by adding pops of color. With the ever-growing trendy white and gray kitchen, this is the perfect opportunity to accomplish the color game. The best part of adding colored kitchen stools to a neutral theme is that you can choose whatever color your heart desires.

However, you’ll want to consider the overall aesthetic of the home. For instance, if you have a country home, choosing bright lime green stools may not be the best option for you. Look around and let the overall tone flow into the kitchen. Not only will this be inviting for guests, but it also will create an overall welcoming feeling.

This category goes without saying, but we have to mention it. If someone is comfortable, they’ll hang out. Thus, by selecting kitchen stools that provide your family comfort, you’ll have a better chance of keeping them there longer over dinner. High-back, padded seats seem to be the best option for support and comfort when it concerns sitting for an extended time.


Visual Interest

People are drawn to things that catch their eye. Thus, choosing a stool that is a bit less ordinary may bring them into the kitchen. Imagine seeing a really cool kitchen stool, something you’ve never seen before. You’re going to want to try that out! Is it comfortable? Where’d you find this stool? The interest, the appeal, the comfort, the feeling of wanting to stay right where you are and hang for a while.
