When you would like to establish that wild west cowboy feel in your home, but you have modern style kitchen furniture and fixtures, then you should consider modern style saddle counter stools. They will still be made of wood.
Adjustable height stool - from bar height to counter height: Typical adjustable height counter stool will readily adjust between the counter height of about 24 - 25 inches to 29 - 32 inches or so bar height. This will allow a stool like that to be used at the bar top, as well as at the counter top, which will add to its choices. While the bar stools and the counter stools are available in both metal or chrome or wood finish, an adjustable height stool is usually only available in the chrome finish or a stainless steel finish as these are the only ways the single foot of a stool can be made height adjustable. That single foot contains a pneumatic mechanism that uses compressed air to `lift the seat surface upward and uses the person`s own weight to lower the stool surface downward.
When you are looking for a saddle bar stool or saddle counter stool as your kitchen bar stools, or if you own a Western style restaurant or bar and would like to recreate the feeling of the bygone era of the Wild Wild West, there is one thing you can do to get into this feel - get a set of western bar stools, and in particular saddle bar stools.
Full height bar stools: These are typically 29 - 32 inches high. They will fit a bar top that is typically between 40 and 42 inches high to accommodate eating a quick bite or sipping a quick drink, either at breakfast time when you are in a rush to get to work, or when you are ready for a quick snack during the day.
When deciding which bar stools to buy, remember to take accurate measurements of the space available, to ensure a comfortable fit. Bar stools should be just the right height, so they are comfortable to sit in, with adequate legroom, but close enough to the counter top for convenience. As a rough guide, aim for a gap of around 9 or 10 inches between the seat and the counter. Think about the positioning of your bar stools and leave enough space between each one for people to be able to move freely. Commercial style swivel bar stools can work well in home settings too, and are great for saving space.
We will explore here three types of western bar or counter stools which will suit several different tastes and occasions. We`ll talk about modern bar stool, round saddle stool, and cowhide seat western saddle bar / counter stool.
