Contemporary Chrome Plated Backless Stool with Adjustable Lift - If you are planning to modernize the look of your kitchen area, then the addition of this kind of counter stool is the best way to do that. A chrome plated backless stool will surely add a contemporary flair to your kitchen space. Meanwhile, its adjustable lift allows it to be adjusted in varying heights, from the typical counter height to the standard bar stool height.
The next thing to keep in mind is the height of the chair proportional to the table or counter where you will be sitting. You should make sure there is about 8-10 inches between the seat and the underside of the table or counter. If not, it will be a pinch, literally, every time you, or your guests, try to take a seat, as your legs will be pinched between the countertop and the chair. This will not make sitting at your counter an enjoyable event, and likely will lead you and everyone else avoiding this seating area.
To bend to this change, bar stool makers are now making stools that have seats of 34 inches in height. These stools allow people to sit comfortably, at the right distance from their food and drink. The stools that are 34 inches tall offer foot rails that are the right height to relax the feet.
The first thing you need to decide when choosing kitchen stools is which style and design will be perfect for your kitchen. These stools come in a variety of shapes, materials, designs, and colors. There are lots of decisions to be made when choosing the style of your stools. Do you want swivels stools or not? Would you prefer backless stools or stools with backs? When deciding on the right style and design for your stool the first thing you need to do is take a survey of the kitchen area.
Gone are the days of the "standard" 30-inch kitchen counter stool. In the past this height comfortably accommodated most counters and most people. These days, most designers are instead opting for heights of 45 inches or more. When this is the case, trying to sit on a 30-inch counter stool will be quite difficult, as you will be sitting far too low to be comfortable. So, furniture makers decided to adjust the height of the counter stools to be a little taller, now 34 inches,
The Foot Rail. Determining the height for a counter stool is only one of the comfort factors. Foot placement is also very important so the location of the foot rail must be taken into account before purchasing a counter stool. For a person of average height (using the current standard of 510" for an adult male) foot rail placement is usually midway to the floor or halfway between the seat and the floor. It is important to test out the placement of a foot rail. While on first appearances it may not seem so important, if you are unable to reach it, or you have to bend your legs too far to put them on it, this seating option could be very uncomfortable.
