Kitchens with islands are not just more functional but look chic as well. The functionality seems to double if you have bar stools perched near the island. Most people place bar stools to lend a distinct style to their kitchens as well as for saving space.
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.
