When scrolling through pinterest for kitchen inspirations, 3 things immediately catch my eye:  bar stools, light pendants, and the color of the  kitchen cabinets.   These are the 3 elements that seem to move the eye around, and give the most interest to a plain kitchen canvas. 

Since most of my kitchen inspirations have a little farmhouse style in them, I knew finding the 12 Best Modern Farmhouse Stools wouldn’t be a problem.   It’s just that I didn’t know if I could edit all of  these bad boys into a cliff notes version post (yep- I said cliff notes…remember those)? 

So, I will try to do my best and scale it down the best I can…which means….grab a drink & some snacks.  You’ll be here for awhile!!

Here are some guidelines to help you with measurements and spacing when purchasing bar stools.  The main thing to look at is your counter height:

counter height (35″ – 37″) = counter stool

bar height (41″-43″) = bar stool

extra tall bar height (44″-47″) = extra tall bar stool

So, don’t forget to measure!  Let’s get to the good stuff – the styles!!!
