Bar stools have already made their way into the kitchen — where will they end up next? Well, that’s for you to decide! As people get more creative with their décor, many furniture pieces, including bar stools, are becoming much more versatile.  No longer do bar stools have to be accompanied with a bar counter-top. In fact, they don’t even need to be used for sitting!

Wherever you need seating, or want to have extra seating, you can use a bar stool. It doesn’t even need to be paired with a table or countertop. Try bringing out bar stools on your patio, in the game room or even in your garage. People don’t think to put any seating in work areas like the garage, but they definitely come in handy when people get tired and their backs hurt.

If you have a vanity in your bedroom or bathroom, sit on a bar stool every morning while getting ready. You’re probably thinking, “I want a chair with more support or that is more comfortable.” Bar stools, however, are not always the circular wooden stools you normally see in actual bars. The style of bar stools has evolved and now there are a variety of designs and shapes for you to choose from. There are even stools with chair-backs and arm rests.

Not only can bar stools be placed in any room of the house, but they can also be used for more than just sitting. Use a bar stool as a bedside table or an accent table in the living room. You can use the “table” to place personal items like a book, glass of water or even an alarm clock. Bar stools are smaller than the typical accent table, so they are perfect if you’re working with limited space.

Another idea is to use bar stools to display decorative items. Instead of hanging a plant, set it on a stool so that the leaves drape over the legs. Or, feature your favorite family photo. You can even stack a pile of older, worn-out books on top of an antique stool for an old-fashioned look.

How will you use your bar stools? Get creative and have fun trying new ideas!
