Viollette Camus Counter Stools June 03, 2018 17:48:27
When it comes to counter stools, size matters. It matters so much that it can make the difference between food in your mouth, food on your clothes or food on the floor. It can make a difference between feeling your face is too close to your plate if you are eating, and too close to your beverages if you are drinking. A counter stool that is too short can also make the difference between feeling the need to constantly stretch your legs and feeling comfortable and relaxed. Width size can make the difference between sitting on the stool and hanging off the stool. Short counter stools can make an adult feel as if they are sitting in a childs seat.
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.
Kitchen counter stools used to come in one standard height. Now, kitchen counters come in different heights. Counter and bar stool companies are trying to accommodate counter heights other than those that are standard. Your job is to decide how tall your kitchen stools need to be. The standard height that all bar stools used to be was 30 inches tall. In the past, this was a good height for most kitchens and for most people. With the seat 30 inches off the floor most people were comfortable.
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.
You can see that a 44 inch counter height would give more leeway for people who are a little larger. There is also the problem of people who are taller. They often need taller stools. They need a higher foot rail in order to comfortably rest their feet. Otherwise, they are forced to stretch down and put their feet on the floor from the height of the stool.
Are you looking for a way to add extra seating in your kitchen or dining area without taking away from the overall look of the room? Why not try adding counter stools to your kitchen? Counter height stools are a wonderful addition to any kitchen. They create extra seating while making it fun and easy to gather in the kitchen at mealtimes.
