Jacqualine Pruvost Bar Stools January 28, 2018 21:45:15
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining game rooms commercial bars etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
Why are these heights chosen? Firstly an average height American will be able to consume a quick snack either standing by or sitting up on the kitchen stool with such chosen height of a stool and a bar top. Secondly it will be possible to prepare breakfast food or drinks on a bar top even though the 40 inch surface height is a bit high for that purpose. Usually the food can be prepared from the one side of the bar top while consumed from the other.
