The same quirky white bar stool is featured in a modern setting, accompanying a fresh and cheerful kitchen decorated in tones of white, steel and with a few strong green and red accents.
So the height is an important criteria when choosing a bar stool, especially if you opt for a custom countertop height. But there’s more to counter-height stools than just that. Other measurements need to be taken into consideration as well. For example, make sure you space out the stools in a comfortable manner. The space between the center of a stool to the center of the one next to it should be between 26” and 30”.
You’ll want to measure your counter height and make sure there is enough space between the bar stool seat and the bottom of the counter. A 10”-12” difference is recommended for optimum comfort and functionality.
Some bar stool designs are more suitable for small spaces than others. A good example is the Lucy counter stool which, with its sleek and versatile design can seamlessly integrate in small kitchens as well as in other areas where space is limited.
