The final aspect to consider is what type of material will be used in the construction of the stool and whether you want the stool to be upholstered. The old fashioned stools were generally made from hard wood and heavily varnished. These are handsome and sturdy stools but perhaps a bit heavy looking for residential use. Upholstered stools are very attractive and comfortable. You can easily have the stool upholstered in the fabric of your choice. These days stools are made from a number of different materials including wood, resin, steel, poly carbonate and formed plastic. There are a number of beautiful products on the market made from brushed chrome with leather seats.
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.
Getting bar stools of the right height is a crucial factor. It will assure you the most convenient and comfortable sitting experience because you will have the optimal leg space between the counter and the stools. To achieve that, first measure the height from the bottom of the counter to the floor. Then deduct 10\" to 12\" from this number. This will give you the height the stools should have. So, for example, if your counter is 36\" in height (which is a standard counter height), you should go for 24\"- 26\" stools. If you have a counter with a raised eating area, measure the distance from the bottom of the eating surface to the floor and then deduct the 10\"- 12\" to get the right height for your stools.
