Buy Right The First Time
Measure your counter
To determine which stool you need, measure the height of your table or counter. Keep in mind you need 9″-13″ between the seat and the counter for seating comfort.
Decide How Many Stools You Need
It’s important to provide enough space between stools for people to eat, drink and socialize without bumping elbows. Especially at a kitchen island which is usually the center hub of a kitchen. Here are the rules of thumb we use:
If the widest part of your stool is 16″-18″ allow 21″-22″ of space per stool.If the widest part of your stool is 19″- 22″ allow 24″ to 25″ of space per stool.If you choose stools that swivel and/or have arms, you’ll need to add a bit more space between stools.
Identify Interior Style of Your Kitchen
Whether the style of
your kitchen is traditional, rustic or contemporary, you can find a stool that complements the look. If you already have a lot of wood, try mixing it up with metal stools. Keep an open mind, and you’ll find just the right look for your kitchen. Mixing textures, patterns and materials yields beautiful results.
