Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining, game rooms, commercial bars, etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders. If your horizontal (floor space) is limited, you may choose armless. Arms generally add 3 to 6 inches to the overall width of a single bar stool and can add up to 18” in width on just 3 bar stools. (See ”How Many Do I Need?) Backless stools are great when you need occasional extra seating or in situations where you don’t want to obstruct a view with tall backs. Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views. If your game room or kitchen faces a lake or river, for example, you may not want backs extending above your counter that may obstruct your view.
Regardless of the style or material used to make up your bar stool, you are going to want the best quality stool you can find. Look for both quality of material and workmanship. The higher the quality of the product the longer it will last and the more useful it will prove to be. Each type of material whether it is plastic, wood or metal comes in various qualities of the material. While cheaper stools may seem like a good deal, if they lack the quality to last they will soon end up in the scrap pile and you will end up paying more to replace them than you will spend purchasing a higher quality material in the first place.
Typical adjustable height counter stool will readily adjust between the counter height of about 24 – 25 inches to 29 – 32 inches or so bar height. This will allow a stool like that to be used at the bar top, as well as at the counter top, which will add to its choices. While the bar stools and the counter stools are available in both metal or chrome or wood finish, an adjustable height stool is usually only available in the chrome finish or a stainless steel finish as these are the only ways the single foot of a stool can be made height adjustable. That single foot contains a pneumatic mechanism that uses compressed air to lift the seat surface upward and uses the person’s own weight to lower the stool surface downward.
Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. As a general rule of thumb, allow 24” from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter, 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests.
