Joie Hamelin. Counter Stools. January 15th, 2018.
The Foot Rail. Determining the height for a counter stool is only one of the comfort factors. Foot placement is also very important so the location of the foot rail must be taken into account before purchasing a counter stool. For a person of average height (using the current standard of 510" for an adult male) foot rail placement is usually midway to the floor or halfway between the seat and the floor. It is important to test out the placement of a foot rail. While on first appearances it may not seem so important, if you are unable to reach it, or you have to bend your legs too far to put them on it, this seating option could be very uncomfortable.
What is a counter stool? It is a stool that goes under the counter. Simple as that. You sit on it, you eat, or do any other kind of activity and then you hop off and go do something else. The thing is, you end up using this little stool quite a bit, especially when it is used for your counter in your kitchen area. Some homes have an actual bar area outside of the kitchen in maybe a game room, or out on a patio, so comfort may not be the biggest factor especially if it is used rarely. Typically these stools will be picked based upon style, design, or just finding the cheapest ones out there. However, if you are getting stools that are going under your kitchen counter at home you might as well find some decently comfortable ones because chances are you will be using it a lot.
When it comes to counter stools, size matters. It matters so much that it can make the difference between food in your mouth, food on your clothes or food on the floor. It can make a difference between feeling your face is too close to your plate if you are eating, and too close to your beverages if you are drinking. A counter stool that is too short can also make the difference between feeling the need to constantly stretch your legs and feeling comfortable and relaxed. Width size can make the difference between sitting on the stool and hanging off the stool. Short counter stools can make an adult feel as if they are sitting in a childs seat.
