Bar stools have become an essential addition to kitchens. With features like breakfast bars, islands and peninsulas becoming more common in kitchen designs, bar stools are a must-have. Adding some bar stools to your kitchen will guarantee your friends and family will gather around in comfort. They’re great for entertaining or everyday use.
Use bar stools daily
Bar stools get plenty of use in many homes. Their casual design makes them easy for weeknight dinners or weekend entertaining. They allow hosts to cook and entertain their guests at the same time.
Kitchens often become the central area of many gatherings, so make sure you have plenty of seating with a couple of bar stools at your kitchen counter. Bar stools are also the perfect spot for kids to eat breakfast or do their homework after school. The whole family will enjoy your new bar stools and they’re sure to get daily use!
What size bar stool do I need?
Choosing the right bar stool for your counter is important. First, you’ll need to measure the space where you want your bar stools. Bar stools are designed for taller height counters and bars. Bar height bar stools are usually between 29 and 32 inches, so they’ll work best with 41 to 43 inch table heights. For shorter table heights, check out our selection of counter stools or consider an adjustable height bar stool.
Next, determine the number of bar stools you’ll need for your counter. Keep in mind that you’ll want to leave 26 to 30 inches between the center of each bar stool. This measurement will give enough space for people to comfortably sit and eat without being squeezed too close together.
Where else can I use bar stools?
Although bar stools are a popular option for kitchens, there are plenty of other spaces in your home where they are handy. Add a few to your home bar setup to create the ultimate hangout space. Your friends will never want to go out when you have great bar stools right in the comfort of your home. A counter-height table and some bar stools are the perfect addition to social spaces like a family room, game room or den.
