One feature that is not entirely necessary but is still important to consider is height adjustment. You may find yourself wanting to use your bar stool in a different capacity which is when having height adjustment would really become beneficial. Seat height adjustment is also advantageous if you are not sure if a stationary stool will fit correctly underneath your counter. Having this feature eliminates the worry and finding exact measurements when trying to figure out the exact seat height needed to fit under certain counter heights.
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.
