Of course, before any of that you should decide whether or not counter-height chairs are the best choice for your home. To help you decide, let’s made a quick comparison between standard and counter-height stools and the tables that match them. Standard tables are the most common and this means they come in a large variety of sizes, designs and finishes so it would be easier to find something you like in this category. Also, because standard-height tables are so common, people are more used with them and thus find them more comfortable. Another argument in their favor is the fact that they’re better for disabled people.
The Glenn bar stool from Ikea is chic and functional for a variety of reasons. It has a curved white seat and a chrome-plated frame. It’s stackable and this allows you to save some space when the stools are not in use.
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.
Looking for bar stools that are a little more straight forward? With no nonsense squares like these, they’ll fit in small corners and can be pushed away under the table when you’re done using them. Available on Amazon.
