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.
Many wooden stools come cushioned as well, adding a bit of color and brightness to the beautiful finished wood. These cushioned stools look great in the family or game room or even in a dining room sitting. The materials used in cushioned stools can be anything from cheap plastic covering to real and faux leather, to cloth and even in some cases velvet. Of course the higher quality the cushion the higher the cost of the bar stool.
Internet stores sell everything from shoelaces to automobiles. Many offer name brand bar stools at incredible discounted prices, but offer very little in terms of personal service, servicing warranty issues, and assisting customers in selecting the proper fit and finish for their particular application. Remember that every monitor displays colors differently. Fabrics shown on screen may not match the actual fabric. Additionally, you cannot try them out by sitting on your computer screen! For these reasons, it often pays to spend a little more to deal with an actual brick and mortar store who will take care of any issues locally as well as provide value-added services such as in home design consultation, delivery and setup of your furniture.
Most people require either a 26\" or a 30\" bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36\" high, you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top, standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops, chances are you have a standard height counter top.
One feature that is not entirely necessary but is still important to consider is height adjustment. You may find yourself wanting to use your bar stool in a different capacity which is when having height adjustment would really become beneficial. Seat height adjustment is also advantageous if you are not sure if a stationary stool will fit correctly underneath your counter. Having this feature eliminates the worry and finding exact measurements when trying to figure out the exact seat height needed to fit under certain counter heights.
