Joie Hamelin. Counter Stools. January 23rd, 2018.
Kitchen counter stools used to come in one standard height. Now, kitchen counters come in different heights. Counter and bar stool companies are trying to accommodate counter heights other than those that are standard. Your job is to decide how tall your kitchen stools need to be. The standard height that all bar stools used to be was 30 inches tall. In the past, this was a good height for most kitchens and for most people. With the seat 30 inches off the floor most people were comfortable.
Do you find yourself in need of extra seating for your kitchen? You need extra places for your family to sit but you dont want the area to look overcrowded and you dont want to take away from the overall look of the room. One solution would be to add counter stools to your kitchen. Counter height stools are great at adding extra seating while maintaining the charm of a room. Some people may confuse counter seats with bar stools but the difference is the height of the stools.
The height of the seat needs to be compared to the height of the counter top. If you are an average-sized person, you need about 8 inches to 10 inches between them to fit your thighs without squeezing. A 30 inch seat height and a 40 inch to 44 inch counter height allows for that.
What is a counter stool? It is a stool that goes under the counter. Simple as that. You sit on it, you eat, or do any other kind of activity and then you hop off and go do something else. The thing is, you end up using this little stool quite a bit, especially when it is used for your counter in your kitchen area. Some homes have an actual bar area outside of the kitchen in maybe a game room, or out on a patio, so comfort may not be the biggest factor especially if it is used rarely. Typically these stools will be picked based upon style, design, or just finding the cheapest ones out there. However, if you are getting stools that are going under your kitchen counter at home you might as well find some decently comfortable ones because chances are you will be using it a lot.
