Joie Hamelin. Counter Stools. March 15th, 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.
Kitchen counter stools used to come in one standard height. Now, kitchen counters come in different heights. Counter and bar stool companies are trying to accommodate counter heights other than those that are standard. Your job is to decide how tall your kitchen stools need to be. The standard height that all bar stools used to be was 30 inches tall. In the past, this was a good height for most kitchens and for most people. With the seat 30 inches off the floor most people were comfortable.
The Foot Rail Location Must Be Comfortable. One aspect of the comfort of the counter stool is where the foot rail is located. On most of them it is about halfway from the floor to the seat. When the person falls within the average range of heights and the kitchen counter is at a height of about 40 inches to 44 inches, the halfway rail is pretty comfortable. It prevents the person from having to try to reach the floor with their feet, or from being cramped trying to keep their feet on a too-high foot rail.
Finding the right counter stools can be and should be a fun and easy task. When picking the right stool for your counter, always remember to take proper measurements so your stools and counters will line up perfectly. Use these stools to spice up any room or backyard, and watch as the rooms these stools are placed in come to life!
