Looking for Bistro Tables Ikea ideas? A bar stool is a versatile seating option that can add style, color and feel into a kitchen or bar design -- or just provide a comfortable place to sit down. Whether you're pulling one up into a island or a dining table, you're guaranteed to find bar stools on sale to fulfill your wants. Choosing one that fits your design and area can be difficult, so check out our handy tips before you store our collection of counter stools and bar stools available: How can I select the best height for your own bar stools? The very last thing you want is a stool that has you cramming your legs beneath the countertop, so pay careful attention to the height of different bar chairs available -- they may not all supply sufficient legroom for you to sit comfortably under your bar. The most typical bar stool sizes available are table height, counter height, bar height and extra tall. You'll want to aim for about 9 to 13 inches between the top of the stool seat and the base of your countertop, but to make things even easier, we've put together a handy guide that matches upward regular counter heights with bar stool peaks: Table Height: These range in height from 18 to 23 inches and can accommodate a top height of 28 to 30 inches. They're a fantastic choice to your more traditional dining table chairs. Counter Height: These vary in height from 24 to 26 inches and can fit a top height of 36 to 39 inches. They're smaller than a typical bar or cafe stool. Bar Height: These go out of 28 to 30 inches in height and also are excellent for a bar using a surface height of 40 to 42 inches. It's possible to come across stools in this height at several restaurants. Extra Tallfor a spectator's opinion using a height of 33 to 36 inches. You're going to want to pair them with a counter top that has a surface height of 44 to 47 inches. You should also keep in mind the horizontal space all around your bar stool. Six inches between every stool is optimal for socializing and eating, but if your fantasy bar or kitchen has adjustable bar stools or counter stools with arms, then you will want to include just a little more space. What type of bar stool is perfect for my countertop or bar? Take a look around your kitchen or bar and decide if you'd like your new stools to stand out or blend in with all the color, style or materials already present. For placement in a narrow hallway or next to a kitchen island, backless bar stools are a fantastic option, since they can be tucked out of the way under the counter overhang. If your stools are the pièce de résistance to your kitchen or dining room area, look for easy to wash surfaces such as leather, wood, metal or perhaps microfiber. Metal bar stools can add contrast to your kitchen or bar that's mostly wood, and wooden bar stools can bring a little bit of nature inside a modern, high gloss kitchen.
