No matter the size of your apartment or the style of your decor, stools are great furniture pieces to have on hand. Their functionality makes them invaluable.
Stools can provide seating around an island or near a fireplace (like the cozy, wood burning fireplaces at Karric Place of Dublin in Dublin, Ohio) and help you reach items on high shelves.
For great looking stools that won’t break the bank, put your DIY skills to work with these simple Ikea hacks:
