Nanette Lelievre Bar Stools February 02, 2018 20:23:53
Why are these heights chosen? Firstly an average height American will be able to consume a quick snack either standing by or sitting up on the kitchen stool with such chosen height of a stool and a bar top. Secondly it will be possible to prepare breakfast food or drinks on a bar top even though the 40 inch surface height is a bit high for that purpose. Usually the food can be prepared from the one side of the bar top while consumed from the other.
Most people require either a 26" or a 30" bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36" high you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops chances are you have a standard height counter top.
