18 inch stool heights are typically the smallest size available, as shorter heights would be too small for anything practical for most adults. An 18 inch stool size is commonly used in areas where your counter, desk, or table is around 30 inches high. This stool size is typical in bathroom vanities and make-up tables. They have also been known to hang out in theater dressing rooms and casino slots. 24 and 26 inch bar stool heights are rather new and are designed to be used for counter heights of 36-39 inches. This seat height was designed specifically for kitchen counters, usually where there is no extra room for the conventional table and chairs. They can also be used at kitchen islands, given the island is the same height as a regular-sized kitchen table and not taller.
Bar stools can be a funky addition to any room. Historically relegated to the old pubs of the United Kingdom, bar stools are now a must have seating solution in many homes. You can now find bar stools in kitchens, bedrooms, artists studios and outdoor patios just to name a few places. With a little creativity a bar stool can be easily accommodated in any room of the house.
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.
Many people think that bar stools made using wood may be fragile as compared to the metal ones, but once you use them you will realize that this is not the case. Modern wooden stools are made from treated woods such as maple, cherry, teak, mahogany, oak and even bamboo. Another advantage of modern stools is that you can change their designs when you are tired of their present design. For example, you can paint or re-stain wooden stools or redesign them. You’d be really surprised how much of a change a fresh coat of paint can bring about in these stools. It’s very easy and inexpensive to give your wooden bar stools a makeover! By painting it in a color that matches your surrounding theme, your bar stools would make a world of difference to your interiors. If you are using them for indoor purposes, you can add cushions with nicely printed covers for enhancing the looks and comfort level of these stools.
