There are many different factors to consider when selecting stools for your home.

First, realize that not every stool is technically a bar stool since the word "bar" refers to the seat height of the stool (even though most people refer to all stools as bar stools).

Since there are so many options, you must be informed so you don't purchase a stool that will not work for your particular situation.

Many people want to purchase furniture that is timeless and won't go out of style.

Unfortunately, most people do not understand what furniture is timeless.

The simplest way to determine if something is timeless is to look at high quality furniture made decades or centuries ago (note that I wrote high quality, not necessarily high priced).

If it was made decades ago and has been in style from then until now, then it is timeless.  If it was in style back then, but went out of style, and is now in style again, then it is not timeless.

When looking for timeless furniture, one way to obtain it is by purchasing antiques.

There are also new timeless furniture pieces available for sale.

Here are a few examples of timeless furniture that should not go out of style, as well as furniture that many people think is timeless but isn't.

Many homes have a standard 4 inch tall backsplash in their kitchen and bathrooms.

Even if you are lucky enough to have a full height backsplash in your kitchen, your builder may have put a standard 4 inch tall backsplash in your bathroom.

Why is this backsplash so common?

It is very common because it uses so little material that makes it cheap, and it covers the edge between the countertop and wall to disguise a wall that is not straight and/or granite that was not cut perfectly.

There is technically nothing wrong with a 4 inch backsplash, however it tends to be common place in mass produced mid to lower end homes, thus making homes that have them look less high end.

Fortunately, there are many other backsplash options that cost the same or only a little bit more, but give your kitchen or bathroom a custom and high end look.
