A counter top height is about 36 inches, or about three feet. For an average height American, this is a good size for food preparation. And when one wants to eat breakfast at the counter, the appropriate height of the breakfast stool seat is 24 inches or so, which is termed the counter stool height. For busy people, this is a great choice of height: The food can be prepared and consumed in the same space, and it can be consumed either sitting up or standing down on a modern counter stool. Lots of choices, and no hassle with setting up another table when in a hurry.
New plastic resin stools are great for use on the patio, deck or at the poolside, as they are simple and easy to clean with a hose or damp cloth. Some of the resins used in plastic bar stools made for outside use are so resistant to the sun’s hot UV rays and weather that they remain looking almost new year after year. Many of these out door stools fold up for easy storage during cold weather saving room in your garage or storage shed.
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.
30\" bar stools are commonly used for a raised eating surface in the 40 to 42 inch height range. Many homes and apartments today are built with a standard 36\" high counter, then have a back splash and raised eating area. In most circumstances, if the eating area is HIGHER than your standard kitchen counter, you will need a 30\" stool.
These days stools almost come in as many different shapes forms and styles and designs as regular chairs. Take your time and think carefully about what you want out of the stool and the placement of the stool. A well placed bar stool or two can add a great deal of interest to your room.
