In traditional or rustic interiors, however, the accent is not as much on the sophisticated looks as it is on the way an element matches everything else around it and on the way it integrates in the whole décor composition.
The Jailhouse Back Wood Seat Swivel Stool featured here would be a good option in that case. Their design makes them coordinate well with farmhouse kitchens. Make sure you measure everything correctly. You need to measure the height of the counter from the floor to the underside. This will help you determine the proper bar stool height so it’s best to measure twice just to make sure.
This Tolix replica stool may differ a bit from the original but it definitely keeps the beauty and elegance intact. It offers a simple and affordable way to add a bit of industrial character to a kitchen, basement or living space.
Another type is the counter-height stool which is the one we’re more interested in. These stools are smaller than the ones used in bars and restaurants and they’re the best for kitchen islands. They measure between 24” and 27” in height. Then there’s also the bar-height stool which is the same one you see in bars. These can be used for standard built-in bars and have a height of 28” to 33”. The fourth type is the extra tall stool which is somewhere between 33” and 36” tall. In its case the name pretty much speaks for itself.
This is the same Onda bar stools featured in a different setting. The white combines well with the surrounding décor, keeping the ambiance airy, fresh and sophisticated.
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.
