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.

After going through two styles dominated by rough designs and rather bland colors we now redirect our attention towards the mid-century modern designs which incorporate a little bit more colors, bold shades as well as more delicate and subtle looks. They maintain a timeless design and have a classical allure but they also tend to be more graphical and modern. When talking about bar stools, this translates as sleek and simplistic creations often featuring dynamic colors in order to become a focal point in the overall décor.
Of course, the backrest isn’t the only thing that makes a bar stool comfortable. Its entire design and structure are important. The type you choose has to do with the size of the room, its function and also how often you plan on using the stools. You should focus on the height, material and style of the stool. For example, decide whether you want a swivel system or not and, if you plan on getting a backless design, the seat should be padded and big enough to be comfortable.
