Elegant, neutral colors, like black and creme-colored whites, are very reflective of a kitchen that is designed with a Paris influence in mind. On the other hand, bold colors and brightly tiled surfaces are a trademark of French country kitchens.
In order to determine how many stools will fit at your kitchen island, home experts recommend you allow 28 to 30 inches for each seating space, which means you can divide the length of your island´s counter by 30 to to figure out how many stools will comfortably fit. (For example, if your island has a 90-inch countertop, you can comfortably fit 3 stools along one side.) You might be tempted to add an extra seat, but keep in mind that you don´t want to pack in too many stools and block walkways or make your kitchen feel cramped.
If your kitchen design features exposed brick walls, wood-lined vaulted ceilings and simple white cabinetry, then you may want to consider a kitchen island that has a simple granite or marble countertop, but is lined with reclaimed wood shelving and a kick space under the island where bar stools will be placed. The overall effect of these materials is warm and inviting.
