Joie Hamelin. Counter Stools. January 19th, 2018.
Wooden counter stools are probably the most popular because not only do they look great inside the home, they usually have a cozy inviting feeling to them. I would advise you get them with backs just in case of extended stays for a period of time on the stool. They can come with pads or not, i would suggest not only because pads can be easily damaged by reckless kids and are typically much harder to clean then a solid wood surface. Arm rests are probably not a must since you can always place your arms up onto the counter (despite what mom tells you). If you are getting counter stools for outside or just for durabilitys sake then definitely go metal because it is hard to damage those puppies and they can withstand all kinds of weather conditions.
Gone are the days of the "standard" 30-inch kitchen counter stool. In the past this height comfortably accommodated most counters and most people. These days, most designers are instead opting for heights of 45 inches or more. When this is the case, trying to sit on a 30-inch counter stool will be quite difficult, as you will be sitting far too low to be comfortable. So, furniture makers decided to adjust the height of the counter stools to be a little taller, now 34 inches,
These stools are integral furniture articles that allow you to enjoy great family times over a cup of coffee, a round of drinks or breakfast. They could also be used for your children to do their homework since counters provide an excellent workspace. They are especially useful to entertain neighbors and guests as you work in the kitchen across the counter. But besides all these functionalities, counter stools make your home look elegant and beautiful as their designs speak of your taste and style.
The Foot Rail. Determining the height for a counter stool is only one of the comfort factors. Foot placement is also very important so the location of the foot rail must be taken into account before purchasing a counter stool. For a person of average height (using the current standard of 510" for an adult male) foot rail placement is usually midway to the floor or halfway between the seat and the floor. It is important to test out the placement of a foot rail. While on first appearances it may not seem so important, if you are unable to reach it, or you have to bend your legs too far to put them on it, this seating option could be very uncomfortable.
