Eulalie Dupuy Bar Stools January 28, 2018 21:55:03
A counter stool proper: A counter top height is about 36 inches or about three feet. For an average height American this is a good size for food preparation. And when one wants to eat breakfast at the counter the appropriate height of the breakfast stool seat is 24 inches or so which is termed the counter stool height. For busy people this is a great choice of height: The food can be prepared and consumed in the same space and it can be consumed either sitting up or standing down on a modern counter stool. Lots of choices and no hassle with setting up another table when in a hurry.
Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. As a general rule of thumb allow 24" from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests.
