5 Tips To Make Your Bar Stylish
Whether you use it as a dining table or for entertaining guests over drinks, here’s how to make it chic
Having bar counters is one of the most-used small space tricks. Their elevation make a limited floor space seem bigger. They’re also versatile—it’s where you can prep meals or have breakfast in the morning. Furnish and spruce up your own bar counter with these tips:
1. Use clear bar stools.
This trick will instantly make a bar area feel light, as the bar stools won’t add visual heft. Find similar bar stools at Dexterton.
2. Go for bar stools with back rests.
This can help you and your friends be comfortable—especially if you’re having long conversations over a bottle of wine. Choose bar stools with upholstered seats, too, so you can sit on them for a long time.
3. Create a rustic, earthy look.
Architect Allen Oblena did so by using unpolished, wooden bar stools in his condo unit. Twigs in a bottle added an organic, outdoorsy vibe.
4. Use adjustable bar stools.
These can help people of different heights be comfortable. You can also adjust it according to what you’re doing at the bar—make it lower to mimic a dining chair when you’re eating lunch or dinner, or make it higher when you’re enjoying a glass of wine or cocktail.

5. Make your bar area colorful.
In this studio unit designed by Wilmer Lopez of W Lopez Designs, the bar counter also functions as the dining area. Green and red bar stools complement the aqua walls. The colorful look also suits the personalities of the four girls who live in the unit.
