Do the barstools always need to face the kitchen?

Can we turn the island around, so our bar stools face the TV instead of the kitchen? That was our client's question, and what a good question it was! The kitchen designer sent cad drawings which - on paper - made it look like it was a very bad idea, saying it is never done that way.

Well I'm of the mindset - it's your house, it needs to be functional for you!  The homeowner was leery to proceed, since they had never seen it done.  I sent them this photo from Houzz, which helped them visualize how it could look....not to mention how much more fun it would be to view the beautiful outdoors or their living room & TV, instead of facing the microwave!

We turned the island around, so the homeowners can face the TV, windows, 
and fireplace  (instead of their microwave)!! 



Decisions about kitchen layouts, island styles & shapes, bar stool placement - these are all easier to visualize with photos. Houzz.com is helpful for looking through your options.

We should know that bar stool has changed from a simple diner style bar stool to a more elaborate design. Today, bar stools from furniture store Manila are being designed for both looks and comfort, and bar stool designers are adding features such as footrests, backrest and finally armrests. However, finding the most comfortable bar stool may be a challenge and there are things that you need to look for.

Rotating the barstools to face the TV is a great idea.
