Below we’ve outlined things to consider when planning your bar stools.
What height does the bar stool need to be?
When choosing your perfect bar stool, you need to measure from the floor to the table top or kitchen counter, then subtract 10-12 inches to get the height of your bar stool seat. Essentially, there should be a10-12 inches gap between the seat of the bar stool and the kitchen counter top so you can sit comfortably. For a flexible alternative, choose an adjustable-height bar stool, these are also great for younger children as they may need the extra height.
How many bar stools will fit?
When deciding how many stools will fit, you need to ensure people can eat and drink comfortably without elbowing each other, and get in and out of their seat easily. A good distance to leave between each stool is no less than 15cm, and remember to leave at least 15cm from the last bar stool to the end of the counter top.
How comfy do you want the bar stools to be?
Bar stools can be stylish and comfortable. Padded bar stools provide more comfort and support, and consider high backrests and armrests for additional support.
