Viollette Camus. Counter Stools. January 23rd, 2018.
34 Inch Counter Stools Are More Comfortable. Builders are now going for counter heights of 45 inches or more. With these heights, the 30 inch pieces are simply too short for most people. They put people with their faces too close to their plates if they are eating, and too close to their beverages if they are drinking. It can make people feel as if they are children again.
If you have a wet bar in the home or prefer a sleeker, contemporary look, then a leather bar stool and counter stool would be an excellent consideration. For this, you have many different styles such as the solid hardwood stool that features clean lines and a traditional scrolled back. These counter stools and barstools come with and without armrests and are available in a number of wood types and leather colors. Now, if you want something more industrial looking, you could change up the leather barstool and counter stool by choosing a tall model made from chrome, straight legs, no arms, and black leather seat.
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.
There are many types of stools as well, including backless, swivel, and stools with back support. Then there are several different styles like contemporary, antique, and traditional. Stools come in many different materials as well, the most common being wood, metal, and upholstered barstools. There are also stools designed specifically for outdoor use and those that are designed to be an indoor show piece. When it comes to picking the design of your counter stools there is truly no end to the mold, weave, or build of your stool. It does not matter if your stool is a simple as a flat platform on four legs, or as complex as a wooden octopus.
