I've always wanted a breakfast bar and my wish came true this year when I DIYed a beautiful microcement polished concrete breakfast bar in a tricky space by our kitchen.
Here's a selection of the contenders I looked at for bar stools...
Wooden high-backed breakfast bar stools - £119 for a pair - Amazon
We ended up choosing these breakfast bar stools. They were super good value at under £120 for the pair. I loved that they had backs, and even more so because the backs were curved. The spindles complemented the fluting on the wall under the breakfast bar and in the window reveal.
They were really easy to assemble (yes, they are a flatpack, so a certain amount of building is required).
2. Wooden backless breakfast bar stool £45.99 - Amazon
These stools are tall, slim and elegant and would fit neatly under a breakfast bar as they don't have backs.
3. Loxwood solid oak bar stools Dunelm - £79 each
These lovely solid oak bar stools have a moulded seat for comfort and look solid and stylish.
4. Teknik Spin Barstool With Wooden Legs - £99 The Range
At £99 each, these are the second most expensive bar stools in the edit and they are upholstered with a swivel seat too. They would look cool in a modern kitchen but weren't quite right for my DIY kitchen makeover.
Some self-assembly required.
5. Nord Curved Back Barstool - £159 M&S
These are the most expensive bar stools in the edit, but there is a lot more to them.
