The Ultimate Counter and Bar Stool Roundup

Counter stools seems to be a lot of people’s decorating kryptonite. Sometimes it’s mine as well! Its a piece of furniture that is prominent in your home and likely used non-stop so it has to be pretty AND durable while alos coordinating with your kitchen AND any other decor nearby if your space is open concept. So I find it helpful to do roundups of them often.

COUNTER STOOL BUYING TIPS:

  1. Make sure you give enough space between each stool- don’t try to cram in too many- they will be uncomfortable and make your kitchen look sloppy.
  2. Make sure the distance between the seat of the stool and the bottom of the counter is about 10″- this is ideal for comfort. Most counter stools will be 26″ because the average kitchen counter is 36″ high- but make sure you measure your counter before buying!
  3. Measure the recess the stools push into- you want to give enough room for peoples legs while keeping their backs close enough to the counter itself. I have a shallow overhang so this is an issue- backless stools work best in this instance.
  4. Make sure the material suits your lifestyle. Got kids? You’ll want to stick to wood, plastic, outdoor fabric or faux leather- easy cleanup and strong durability. Leather can go either way- its durable, but if someone sits on a blueberry on it- it’s going to stain.
  5. If you have upholstered dining chairs in the same space, look for non upholstered counter stools and vice versa. Or instead of upholster look for woven styles.
