Berta Russo. Bar Stools. September 24th, 2017.
Most people require either a 26" or a 30" bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36" high, you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top, standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops, chances are you have a standard height counter top.
Saddle Bar stools: A great new style that is becoming increasingly popular is the wooden saddle bar stool. These stools have a longer, rectangular seat, and the middle is lower than the ends. Many people feel that these stools are more comfortable than normal wooden stools.
If your horizontal (floor space) is limited, you may choose armless. Arms generally add 3 to 6 inches to the overall width of a single bar stool and can add up to 18" in width on just 3 bar stools. (See "How Many Do I Need?)
Metal bar stools which are welded at all joints are far less prone to these problems. In addition, many companies have dozens of finishes, fabrics, and options available for a given style. For example, you may like a stool that is shown on our retail floor as a stationary (non swivel) stool with arms. In many cases you can custom order the same style as a swivel armless, swivel with arms, stationary without arms, or even a backless.
