Bar Stools – Best Dining Seat Arrangements for Small Houses And Apartments

black-and-white-bar-stools

If you are strapped for space in your small home or studio apartment – especially in the dining area, do away with the dining chairs and dining tables. Barstools can be the best alternative that will save space and look neat and elegant in your apartment. You can stack them one over the other when not in use – all the more reason you should opt for bar stools. A studio apartment can have open kitchen running into living room without any specific dining room per se or even a designated dining area. Today’s small houses that have only one bedroom and kitchen cum living room also will face the same problem of not having separate dining area. Best idea is to use barstools at the kitchen itself using a counter top as dining table. Using free standing kitchen islands can be a good idea. But you must take care to get a slim and compact kitchen island that can do multiple duties as kitchen-work space, dining area, storage space and even your own and kids’ home work space when needed. If you get a slightly taller island – as tall as a bar-counter-height kitchen island, it will be perfect.

Contemporary bar stools come in quaint shapes and vibrant colours. When you go for good quality bar stools, they come with all kinds of guarantees. Metal, wood, polycarbonate stools, and wood-metal combo – all look great and are very utilitarian. They can be used at a bar table as well as kitchen counter tops. Light weight and stackable, they can be stored when not needed. Here are some beautiful looking barstools from Casamania. They look light, sleek with classic and clean-cut designs. Very comfortable looking, but they are not space hogging. With footrests and back supports, some look so elegant and stylish, will add ambience to any room in your home. Perfect for a small home!

I am sure you are also keen to get some bar stools like above. These will be convenient to use not only in your kitchen but also if you have an additional kitchen in the backyard or poolside, they can come handy. They blend nicely with any kind of furniture and you will love them once you have them. You can be sure of finding them very useful in your small home or studio apartment!

Bright And Best Looking Modern Kitchens

If you are going to buy a home or rent a home, what rooms are first checked as the most important rooms? Kitchen and bathrooms are the most importable attractions when you are buying or renting a home. Kitchen is where the families gather for meal times and this is truer now in small homes and apartments where kitchen and dining areas are adjacent to each other.

Big or small a good layout is the most essential basic need for the kitchen. Kitchen is a high traffic area where every family member will frequent and children stay here forever. This is where the friends and visitors come in for a cup of coffee or a bite to eat. When the layout is good and well planned, even a tiny kitchen can accommodate quite a lot of people coming and going.

The highest priority while layout of the kitchen is planned is that chef or whoever cooks in the kitchen gets the most comfortable area for cooking and attending to other all cooking related tasks. A island in the center or L shaped counter where one of the arms is reserved for preparation of meals and related tasks like cutting veggies, preparing joints etc is an excellent idea.

Having the utilities near by is another important thing. It can aid in keeping the kitchen clean and clutter free with quick and efficient disposal of garbage and used utensils into the dishwasher etc. Many kitchens have twin wash areas – which are again a great help to keep the kitchen spotlessly clean and pristine.

You can opt for a traditional vintage look – this will look pleasing especially if you have a large kitchen area and your home has a classic décor. Warm looking wood cabinets and floors can make the kitchen look homely yet impressive. You can actually have a dining table-chair set – especially if the room is large enough with enough elbow room etc.

Here you can see a number of images with various styles and layouts from Snaidero. The kitchens look spacious with very efficient lay out and well lit and look sleek and sophisticated. One is a galley type layout whereas most of the kitchens are variations of L shaped kitchens or U-shaped kitchens. All kitchens enjoy the additional comfort of roomy and comfortable islands which in many instances double up as dining area with high stools instead of dining chairs. Which kitchen is your choice?
