Joie Hamelin Counter Stools January 18, 2018 18:35:06
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.
Counter stools are a great way to utilize all of your counter space. It doesnt matter if your counters are of normal or extra tall stature. Placing bar stools around your counters opens up more eating space and creates a more inviting environment for you and your guests. Whenever you are entertaining, or just having a few guests over for some drinks, having kitchen stools around your counter can open unused space in your home.
What are they used for? As the name implies, counter stools are used where counters are available. In a home interior setting, if you have kitchen counters or bar counters, these provide the most appropriate seating arrangements. While they are mainly used for taking breakfast, snacks or a round of drinks, other uses of these stools make them very appealing. Their placements and comfortable seating/turning arrangements allow reading or writing and enjoying entertainment sources like music or television.
Adjustable and Custom Made Counter Stools. Two viable alternatives to the standard counter stool are the adjustable and custom designed counter stools. Prior to ordering these stools you should contact the manufacturer to see if there is a way to "test drive" the stools, especially adjustable stools. There may be a restaurant supply showroom with floor models of each. A good idea would be to take someone needing the custom seating with you to test for comfort. If the fit is good you can then place an order for a full set of counter stools.
You can see that a 44 inch counter height would give more leeway for people who are a little larger. There is also the problem of people who are taller. They often need taller stools. They need a higher foot rail in order to comfortably rest their feet. Otherwise, they are forced to stretch down and put their feet on the floor from the height of the stool.
Take note of the current overall look of your kitchen and choose kitchen stools that will blend in with that look. If youre kitchen is filled with classic and comfortable elements you may want to choose wooden kitchen stools. If you have more of a modern, contemporary feel you could choose wrought iron stools. Your new seating should add to the beauty and décor of the room without being distracting.
