Finding the right stools for your kitchen is challenging because there are so many factors to consider, including height, style and also comfort.


Choose the right height

Chair, bar or counter height? To determine which stool you need, measure the height of your table or counter.


  • Chair stool heights are generally 18″ from floor to seat. Pair with a table or counter 28″-33″ in height.
  • Counter stool heights are generally 24″-26″ inches from floor to seat. Pair with a table or counter 34″-40″ in height.
  • Bar stool heights are generally 28″-32″ from floor to seat. Pair with a table or counter 41″-43″ in height

Keep in mind that there should be 9 to 12 inches between stool seat and the bottom of counter or a bar for comfortable leg space

Consider the style of stool

Do you want to make a design statement or do you want more discreet seating? If you’ll use your stools where food is served, consider a low-maintenance material, such as leather, wood or metal. If you choose upholstered stools, choose a microfiber that easily wipes clean. Your answers can help you determine the style of stool that will ultimately work in your kitchen.

Whether the style of your kitchen is traditional, rustic or contemporary, you can find a stool that complements your look. There’s no need to be too matchy-matchy. I always go for a surprise with my choices for bar stools

Think about Versatility

Think about how versatile you want your bar stool to be and what purpose you want it to serve. If you will be using it both as a counter and bar stool, or to provide additional seating in the living room or media area when you have company, choose a bar stool that fits all these needs. For example, a backless swivel stool may not feel comfortable for long periods of time

Find a Good Fit

Determine how much space the bar stool will take up, how much room you have and how many stools you can fit in that space comfortably. If you’re buying a pair, then ensure that there is enough space between them when you position them at your bar. Ideally, there should be at least 6 inches of space between bar stools. If you have a tighter area, choose compact stools without arm rests. If you have a larger area, choose bar stools that match the appropriate scale
