Jacqualine Pruvost Bar Stools January 30, 2018 18:22:55
Backless stools are great when you need occasional extra seating or in situations where you don`t want to obstruct a view with tall backs. Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views. If your game room or kitchen faces a lake or river for example you may not want backs extending above your counter that may obstruct your view.
Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. As a general rule of thumb allow 24" from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests.
