A counter stool proper: A counter top height is about 36 inches, or about three feet. For an average height American, this is a good size for food preparation. And when one wants to eat breakfast at the counter, the appropriate height of the breakfast stool seat is 24 inches or so, which is termed the counter stool height. For busy people, this is a great choice of height: The food can be prepared and consumed in the same space, and it can be consumed either sitting up or standing down on a modern counter stool. Lots of choices, and no hassle with setting up another table when in a hurry.
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?)
Adjustable height stool - from bar height to counter height: 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 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.
