Bar or counter height? To determine which stool you need, measure the height of your table or counter. Keep in mind you need 9″-13″ between the seat and the counter for seating comfort.
*Chair stool heights are generally 18″ from floor to seat. Pair with a table or counter 28″-30″ in height.
* Counter stool heights are generally 24″-26″ inches from floor to seat. Pair with a table or counter 36″-39″ in height.
* Bar stool heights are generally 28″-30″ from floor to seat. Pair with a table or counter 40″-42″ in height.
Style always as focus point
Do you want to make a design statement or do you want more discreet seating? And do the stools you really want work in the space you have? Your answers can help you determine the style of breakfast bar stools that will ultimately work better in your kitchen for a relaxing morning meal!
What kind of leather should i uphsoltered my breakfast bar stools?
If you’ll use your stools where food is served, consider a low-maintenance material, such as leather, wood or metal. If you choose upholstered stools, choose a microfiber that easily wipes clean.
Whether the style of your kitchen is traditional, rustic or contemporary, you can find a breakfast bar stool that complements your own style. There’s no need to be too matchy-matchy. If, for example, your dining room is adjacent to your kitchen, it’s not necessary to match the style of seating. And if you already have a lot of wood, try mixing it up with metal stools. Keep an open mind, and you’ll find just the right look for your kitchen.
