Fanchon Marques Counter Stools June 03, 2018 17:48:25
With the increasing demand for backless stools, manufacturers have already introduced them in different types and models that vary greatly in size, style, design, as well as features. Normally, these stools are approximately 24 - 27 inches in height. They are about 5 - 8 inches lower than standard bar stools. This lowered design allows them to be easily fitted in under standard size counter tops, which are typically 36 inches tall. Some of the viable types of backless stools that you should consider integrating in your kitchen or dining area are as follows:
Types, sizes, shapes and designs. Designs and styles of counter stools have a significantly diverse range. According to the materials of which they are made of, there could be wooden, fiberglass, plastic and metal (steel or wrought iron) versions available in the furniture stores. Many of them are made with a combination of leather or fabric seats. Although most of these stools are without backrest or arms, some designs include them to add to the comfort. As for shapes, the stools could again be quite different. They could be round or square shaped. They are usually higher than any other stools used in homes. This is because they need to conform to the height of the kitchen or bar counters. With a touch of modern design and style they may have swivel and wheeled options for turning or moving along the counter length. Many of the modern stools offer further flexibility and comfort by providing adjustable reclining and height options allowing even children to use them when necessary.
Take note of the current overall look of your kitchen and choose kitchen stools that will blend in with that look. If youre kitchen is filled with classic and comfortable elements you may want to choose wooden kitchen stools. If you have more of a modern, contemporary feel you could choose wrought iron stools. Your new seating should add to the beauty and décor of the room without being distracting.
Opening up your counters will also encourage more interacting within your family. Instead of standing around the kitchen getting in the cooks way for example, they could simply sit and watch from the other side of the counter or try helping out. Using these bar stools as quick chairs that can be tucked away and stored with ease is a great solution to your limited seating problems. These kitchen stools are also great for outside counters or barbeques. They are great at handling the elements and are easily to move and get on and off of.
The next thing to keep in mind is the height of the chair proportional to the table or counter where you will be sitting. You should make sure there is about 8-10 inches between the seat and the underside of the table or counter. If not, it will be a pinch, literally, every time you, or your guests, try to take a seat, as your legs will be pinched between the countertop and the chair. This will not make sitting at your counter an enjoyable event, and likely will lead you and everyone else avoiding this seating area.
