Jacqualine Pruvost Bar Stools January 30, 2018 18:19:45
When deciding which bar stools to buy remember to take accurate measurements of the space available to ensure a comfortable fit. Bar stools should be just the right height so they are comfortable to sit in with adequate legroom but close enough to the counter top for convenience. As a rough guide aim for a gap of around 9 or 10 inches between the seat and the counter. Think about the positioning of your bar stools and leave enough space between each one for people to be able to move freely. Commercial style swivel bar stools can work well in home settings too and are great for saving space.
Adjustable height stool - from bar height to counter height: Typical adjustable height counter stool will readily adjust between the counter height of about 24 - 25 inches to 29 - 32 inches or so bar height. This will allow a stool like that to be used at the bar top as well as at the counter top which will add to its choices. While the bar stools and the counter stools are available in both metal or chrome or wood finish an adjustable height stool is usually only available in the chrome finish or a stainless steel finish as these are the only ways the single foot of a stool can be made height adjustable. That single foot contains a pneumatic mechanism that uses compressed air to `lift the seat surface upward and uses the person`s own weight to lower the stool surface downward.
