For any contemporary kitchen to really make a statement, a bar or kitchen island is a must. It's a very functional block of furniture and happens to be the social centre of the kitchen. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to go barstool shopping. The very idea of incorporating stylish barstools in your design is something that can increase your style points in an instant.
If you do not wish to spend lavishly on bar stools, you can opt to incorporate plastic ones that look equally good and are easy to be moved. Some kitchens are tiny and hence it makes it essential for you to place such bar stools that do not gobble up more space. In such a case, there is an option to place foldable bar stools or those that can be fitted inside the island easily.
