When Kale and I started looking for a new apartment, I was so excited to get one thing- a kitchen table! When we moved in, I realized I had to make a choice for the space we had which was my kitchen table or my office area. Working from home, I preferred the office space. Luckily we found the perfect apartment for us with the help of Dallas Rentals, and we have a counter off of our island, and then we finally chose the perfect barstools c/o Apt2B and that’s where we eat all of our meals!
Why Choose Bar Stools or Counter Stools for Your Apartment
Choosing the right barstools for your apartment is no easy task. Especially with someone else involved! There are tons of different reasons to choose barstools over a kitchen table, so here are mine:
Bar Stools/Counterstools Save Space
We probably could have fit a table but when I finally realized we didn’t need one I was so happy to have the extra space! Our apartment would have been very crowded if we got a table, even without my office area, it would have been a tight squeeze.
Bar Stools/Counter Stools are Convenient:
Barstools are much more convenient than a table and chairs. Two-four stools are easier to buy, fewer pieces to use, and style. They also take up much less space! With the kitchen being the heart of the home, we needed seating for guests at the bar.
Bar Stools/Counter Stools are Affordable
With barstools, we only needed two of them vs filling a table with chairs, there was much fewer pieces to buy and fill space with. It’s much more cost-effective to buy two chairs than an entire set.
Bar Stools/Counter Stools are a Necessity:
Truthfully, I really like stuff, but in this case, it is so much better to have only what you need. We eat most of our dinners at home, but so far, there has only been the two of us- no dinner parties in our one bedroom apartment! I so much prefer the barstools over a table and chairs that would never be used (except to hold things we were too lazy to put away, which I am guilty of!).
Barstools are the best option over a kitchen table, and I am so thrilled to have these from Apt2B! Both counter stools and bar stools come in a few different colors, styles, and heights. They aren’t bulky, and fit perfectly into our small space. They’re modern, but still classic, and I love the grey!
