Adjustable and Custom Made Counter Stools. Two viable alternatives to the standard counter stool are the adjustable and custom designed counter stools. Prior to ordering these stools you should contact the manufacturer to see if there is a way to "test drive" the stools, especially adjustable stools. There may be a restaurant supply showroom with floor models of each. A good idea would be to take someone needing the custom seating with you to test for comfort. If the fit is good you can then place an order for a full set of counter stools.
34 Inch Counter Stools Are More Comfortable. Builders are now going for counter heights of 45 inches or more. With these heights, the 30 inch pieces are simply too short for most people. They put people with their faces too close to their plates if they are eating, and too close to their beverages if they are drinking. It can make people feel as if they are children again.
Another you need to take into consideration when choosing the best counter stool for your kitchen is the size of the stool. While counter stools in general are shorter than bar stools, they still vary in width and depth. Its an absolute must that you take measurement of your countertop where youll be placing the stools before you go shopping. Youd be really bummed if you ended buying really great stools that just didnt fit at your counter.
Counter stools are a great way to utilize all of your counter space. It doesnt matter if your counters are of normal or extra tall stature. Placing bar stools around your counters opens up more eating space and creates a more inviting environment for you and your guests. Whenever you are entertaining, or just having a few guests over for some drinks, having kitchen stools around your counter can open unused space in your home.
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.
Wooden counter stools are probably the most popular because not only do they look great inside the home, they usually have a cozy inviting feeling to them. I would advise you get them with backs just in case of extended stays for a period of time on the stool. They can come with pads or not, i would suggest not only because pads can be easily damaged by reckless kids and are typically much harder to clean then a solid wood surface. Arm rests are probably not a must since you can always place your arms up onto the counter (despite what mom tells you). If you are getting counter stools for outside or just for durabilitys sake then definitely go metal because it is hard to damage those puppies and they can withstand all kinds of weather conditions.
