Laverne Mallet. Counter Stools. January 17th, 2018.
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.
The Foot Rail Location Must Be Comfortable. One aspect of the comfort of the counter stool is where the foot rail is located. On most of them it is about halfway from the floor to the seat. When the person falls within the average range of heights and the kitchen counter is at a height of about 40 inches to 44 inches, the halfway rail is pretty comfortable. It prevents the person from having to try to reach the floor with their feet, or from being cramped trying to keep their feet on a too-high foot rail.
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.
Take note of the current overall look of your kitchen and choose kitchen stools that will blend in with that look. If youre kitchen is filled with classic and comfortable elements you may want to choose wooden kitchen stools. If you have more of a modern, contemporary feel you could choose wrought iron stools. Your new seating should add to the beauty and décor of the room without being distracting.
