These stools are available in lots of different sizes, styles, shapes and materials so you need to do your research before going shopping. First of all, it’s important to select the right height for the stools. Measure the height of the counter and calculate the height the stools should have.A bar, for example, is between 40” and 42” high, in which case a seat height of 28” to 30” is required for the bar stools.
Basically, the first thing you need to think about is in what space the bar stools will be going. This will provide a perfect starting point in your search. Will they be at the kitchen island and be used every day, many times a day? Or will they be tucked away in the basement kitchenette for the occasional holiday party?
