The Ins and Outs of Bar Stools
Bar stools have been around for a long time, especially in the kitchen. They are equally at home in the outdoor room or outdoor kitchen.
These tall chairs make it easy for family and friends to gather around, and at the same time allow standing people access to the group.
In this article, we look at the ins and outs of bar stools, exploring the different heights and materials.
The Height of the Bar Stool
The word bar stool is a broad term for stools that come in three heights – counter, bar and stadium. These stools are designed to pair with a standard counter which is 36 inches tall.
Usually a bar stool ranges in height from 24 – 26 inches.
These stools are meant to sit at counter tops and tall tables like pub tables. These can be inside or outside.
The stadium stool is the tallest and is designed to be used at a 48 inch table or counter. We like this stool when you need some extra height.
The Materials of the Bar Stool
Bar stools are made in a multitude of materials: metal, brushed staineless steel, wood, and many others.
The best bar stools have footrests for comfort and often include a cushion for your seat.
The bar stool is here to stay, and it’s quite at home in your indoor and outdoor spaces. Be sure and stop by our stores to check out our selection!
