When you love to entertain, it’s always a fear that your guests will be uncomfortable. Having enough seating space around your home is one of the keys to throwing a party that no one will want to leave. While your living area and kitchen table provide a lot of seating, bar stools at your counter are a great way to provide another rest area for your guests and create a dedicated space for more casual socializing.
