Choosing a stool


tg2w3edfc6hdc8iwe9o22You need to know the right height you need. Most people require either a 25-inch or 30-inch. For a counter that is 35-inch, you require a stool of 25-inch. The majority of kitchen counters are 34 to 38 inches high. For raised eating, you need 30-inch bar stools. Most apartments and homes are built with a standard 35-inch high counter, a raised eating area, and a back splash.

Back or backless, arms or armless

Stools which are used for long periods or frequently such as game rooms, commercial bars, and dining have backs and arms to decrease stress on the back and increase comfort. If the floor space is limited, you can choose armless stools. Most arms are 3 to 7 inches long. The backless stools are ideal for occasional extra seating. You can also use them in areas where you want to avoid obstructing view with the tall backs.

How many do you need

The majority of newer apartments and homes have a raised counter that is built to at least accommodate 2 bar stools. It is advisable to allow 24-inch from center of a single seat to the next seat. A long counter can accommodate even 3 stools. Thus, you need to be careful with the measurements of your stool. It is advisable to purchase an extra one and use it for the extra guests.

Wood or metal

The fact that it is soft means that joints and screws can be loose over time. The outward stress on arms is likely to loosen the attachment. Stretchers and legs also become loose with continuous use. On the other hand, metal stools are prone to such problems. Most companies have dozens of fabrics and finishes that can match any particular style.


This is the amount of money that you should expect to pay. It is advisable to carry out window shopping to understand the prices. Always ask for discounts.
