Bianca Esposito Bar Stools September 24, 2017 15:48:13
34" and larger bar stools are used for counters that exceed 42" in height. Please double check your measurements before ordering a 34" seat height. These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24" to 30" range.
When you are decided to pick a black leather bar stool, sometimes termed counter stool, either of a wood finish, a contemporary chrome finish, or a black metal finish to go with your existing bar top, then you already know that a black leather bar stool will be an elegant and classy complement to your kitchen or bar area. Complementing a stainless steel finish kitchen with a chrome finish black leather stool will work, as will complementing a wood-based kitchen style with a black leather and wood finish.
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.
Most people require either a 26" or a 30" bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36" high you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops chances are you have a standard height counter top.
Metal Bar Stools: Metal bar stools are often available in dozens of finishes. Look for a powder-coated and baked on finish. These finishes are by far more chip and scratch resistant than "spray painted" finishes. In addition to a more durable surface a powder coated finish is much less likely to be damaged by cleaning products than a painted finish.
When space is at a premium in your bar or around your counter top, you will want to either get a backless adjustable height stool to take up the least amount of space, or you will go for a folding counter stool. A folding counter stool will collapse the back rest, the seat, and the legs into a single thin plane, and so flattened will become highly useful for stowing away, and for transporting it from room to room, and even to an entirely new place altogether, such as a second home.
