Jacqualine Pruvost Bar Stools January 29, 2018 20:07:31
There are two uses for bar stools in a typical American kitchens and game rooms: First is with 40-42 inches tall bar tops and the corresponding comfortable sitting level of the bar counter stool is about 30-32 inches above ground. Second is with the counter tops which have a typical height of three feet or 36 inches and a good sitting height with those is 24-25 inches. Likewise the small dinette tables for nooks or game rooms are often somewhere between the bar top height and the counter top height. When you want to use your bar stool (or a counter height stool) in all of the above circumstances then an adjustable height stool is a good choice. Not surprisingly most adjustable stools will adjust between 24 and 30 inches in height.
Why are these heights chosen? Firstly an average height American will be able to consume a quick snack either standing by or sitting up on the kitchen stool with such chosen height of a stool and a bar top. Secondly it will be possible to prepare breakfast food or drinks on a bar top even though the 40 inch surface height is a bit high for that purpose. Usually the food can be prepared from the one side of the bar top while consumed from the other.
