If the main use of your island bench is to have meals on and be used frequently, then you may want to think about the materials the stools are made from. Metal, plastic and wooden stools are going to be a great option in this regard as they are durable, easy to keep clean and maintain. If you are after upholstered stools then ensure the stools are made from microfiber fabric or the cushions are changeable. This will help your stools look fresher and last longer.
Another tip to remember when purchasing stools is to think about space. Allow enough space for your guests and family members to enjoy sitting and eating at your kitchen bench without bumping elbows.
