With the increasing demand for backless stools, manufacturers have already introduced them in different types and models that vary greatly in size, style, design, as well as features. Normally, these stools are approximately 24 - 27 inches in height. They are about 5 - 8 inches lower than standard bar stools. This lowered design allows them to be easily fitted in under standard size counter tops, which are typically 36 inches tall. Some of the viable types of backless stools that you should consider integrating in your kitchen or dining area are as follows:
What are these stools exactly? Popularly known as bar stools, counter stools are used where ever counters exist. Like some other types of stools used inside a home, they are basically high single seats with or without a backrest.

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.
