Bar Stools 101: Finding the Right Fit

Source: Decoholic

Please…be seated…And while we’re at it, let’s make that comfortably seated. But what do you need to do to ensure you, your family, and your guests enjoy the stool seating you provide? Finding the perfect stool for your seating needs is as easy as three simple steps.

Determine the Height You Need

When it comes to stool seating, there are four basic heights: Dining (chair), Counter, Bar, and Spectator. Measure the distance from the floor to the top of the dining surface to understand how much room you have. For Counter, Bar, and Spectator surfaces you should double check where the surface supports are (sometimes they may block you from pushing in the stool all the way.) This will help you determine not only the height but where the stools will fit.

Determine the Ideal Quantity

How many people need to sit on stools around the breakfast nook at the same time each day? Looking at how and where the stools will be used will help you determine how many you need. You’ll also want to ensure you have enough room to tuck them all in together.

Determine Your Ideal Fit

There are a variety of options within each of the spectator, bar, counter, and dining height stool selections. Measuring the space gives you a good understanding on what your space can accommodate, but your personal tastes will impact the final perfect fit. Personal preference will also impact the width you choose for your stool seating surface, with options ranging from wide to narrow, round to square, there is as much variety in stool styles as there are types of behinds that will be using them.

Bar stools are a great way to add stylish seating to your home, by picking the right height and fit for your needs you’ll ensure no one is left ‘behind’ when it comes to comfort in your home.
