Choosing one which fits your design and area can be difficult, so check out our handy hints before you shop our set of counter stools and bar stools available: How do I choose the ideal height for my bar stools? The very last thing you need is a stool which offers you cramming your legs under the countertop, so pay careful attention to the elevation of different bar chairs available -- they may not all provide sufficient legroom for you to sit comfortably beneath your bar. The most typical bar stool sizes available are table height, counter height, bar height and extra tall. You'll want to target for Around 9 to 13 inches between the top of the stool seat and the bottom of your counter top, but to make things even easier, we've assembled a handy guide that fits upward normal counter heights with bar stool heights: Table Height: These vary in elevation from 18 to 23 inches and can accommodate a surface elevation of 28 to 30 inches. They are a wonderful choice to your more traditional dining table seats. Counter Height: These vary in elevation from 24 to 26 inches and will fit a surface elevation of 36 to 39 inches. They are smaller than a normal bar or cafe stool. Bar Height: These move out of 28 to 30 inches in height and also are great for a bar using a surface elevation of 40 to 42 inches. It's possible to find stools in this height in many restaurants. You'll want to pair them with a counter top which has a surface elevation of 44 to 47 inches. You should also remember that the horizontal space around your bar stool. Six inches between every stool is optimal for eating and socializing, but if your dream kitchen or bar has swivel bar stools or counter stools with arms, then you'll want to add just a bit more space. What type of bar stool is most appropriate for my counter or bar? Have a look around your kitchen or bar and decide if you want your fresh stools to stand out or blend in with all the colour, style or materials currently present. For placement in a narrow hallway or next to a kitchen island, backless bar stools are a terrific choice, since they can be tucked out of the way below the counter overhang. If your stools are the pièce de résistance to your kitchen or dining room area, search for easy to wash surfaces like wood, leather, metal or even microfiber. Do not be afraid to mix and match, possibly. Metal bar stools can add contrast to a kitchen or bar that's predominantly wood, and wooden bar stools can bring a little bit of character within a modern, high gloss kitchen.
