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”.
Multiple options for swiveling bar stools exist they can swivel out from attachment to the counter itself (a space-saving function) or the bar stool’s seat can swivel on top of its own frame. Keep in mind arm rests if you opt for swiveling; if you have arm rests on your bar stool, they should be lower than your counter to keep from destroying the counter’s edge over time.
The general opinion is that bar stools with backs are more comfortable than the backless ones. It’s quite logical actually. Having something to rest against is definitely comfortable and even ergonomic, especially if you’re sitting on the stool for long periods of time. Backless stools can be comfortable too, usually if they’re only used periodically or for short periods of time.
A similarly well-balanced décor is featured here. This open floor plan uses a long kitchen island as a divider between the spaces and the black bar stools emphasize this barrier. They match the counter top and the accent wall.

There’s something about the crisp, no-nonsense lines of a square bar stool that make it a perfect choice in a modern kitchen. Structure, order, and functionality in one piece. Done and done. Sometimes a space with lots of hard angles, such as a kitchen, can greatly benefit from a few curves here and there. A rounded bar stool might be just the thing.
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.
