Adding seating to your kitchen can help create a space that is practical and welcoming, bringing an area for sitting together and sharing the kitchen with others. A kitchen island can be a good way to add seating to your kitchen, but what are the different options for kitchen island seating? And how can you make the right choice for your space?

What are the different options for kitchen island seating?

There are a number of different and effective options to choose from for your kitchen island seating. These include:

  • Bar stools- Bar stools can be a good option for tall kitchen islands, with these stools available in different heights (typically 75-85 cm for bar height and 60-70 cm for counter height). As such, you can choose the best option for the height of your kitchen island, for comfort and practicality. Additionally, these are available in a range of materials and designs suitable for a wide range of kitchen design styles.
  • Counter stools- Counter stools are slightly shorter than bar stools, making them ideal for kitchen islands with a lower counter height. They offer a comfortable seating option without the high perch of bar stools, making them a family-friendly choice.
  • Bench seating- For a stylish and more personalised option, bench seating can be effective for kitchen islands. These are a more communal and space-efficient option, which is perfect for larger households or those who frequently entertain. These can be built-in or movable, depending on your requirements and preferences.
  • Integrated seating- Some kitchen islands are designed with integrated seating areas, such as a lower table extension or a built-in breakfast nook. This type of seating is ideal for those who want a cohesive look and can be customised to fit the exact needs of your household.
