Counter stools are a necessary touch when you have an island or counter in your kitchen. You may also have an outdoor counter table on your deck or patio that is in need of counter stools. When you have plenty of seating options, including outside bar stools, everyone has a place to sit. This can give you the optimal place for entertaining your friends and family. Counter stools are typically between 24 inches to 27 inches tall. Here’s what you should know if you have trouble finding the best indoor or outdoor counter stools for your needs.
If you're looking for extra added height in your seating or a place to prop your feet or reach for something higher, a luxury counter height stool will prove essential in dining room and kitchen settings. Counter height stools are generally 24 inches to 26 inches from floor to seat and pair best with table or counter heights that measure between 36 inches to 40 inches in height. Slightly smaller than their bar stool counterparts, kitchen counter stools prove versatile and handy for seating that fits at tables, counters, kitchen islands, and sometimes bars.
Counter height stools offer you and your guests numerous seating options that work in both formal and casual settings, adding elegance and class to your home décor that provides extra definition in your dining area. Depending on how you want to seat people and the functionality and style you’re seeking in your luxury counter height stools, LuxeDecor has a wide variety of modern and casual counter height bar stools to choose from to suit your needs.
There are a number of factors that can influence your choice of counter stools and a number of practical things to consider. Here are a few essential things to look at before buying:
Style is an important consideration as well. There are many styles of counter stools. It does not matter if you have traditional, modern, or rustic style decor; there are outdoor bar chairs for you. Decide on the feel you want your decor to have before buying counter stools.
In addition to style and matching your decor, it is essential to consider the functionality and features of the counter stools that are available. There are a few features you want to keep in mind when you are in the market for a counter stool.

The first thing you want to consider when you purchase counter stools is where you want to place them. Once you determine that, you can narrow your choices down. If you want to place them outside, you may want to consider outdoor metal bar stools. If you want counter stools for the inside, you may want to look for wicker bar chairs. When you know where you plan to place the counter stools, you are able to measure the table or counter where you want to put them.
You want to verify the height of the counter stools you like. You should not assume that a stool that is labeled as a counter stool is a standard height, even if you have a standard height table. If you want to confirm the comfort of the counter stools, you are going to have to sit on them to determine the feel. That is the best way to know if you are going to like the comfort of the counter stools.

If you're placing your stools in a corridor or placing them around a kitchen island, choose backless seating that can easily be tucked away so that the look isn't overwhelming. The white counter stools in the Metallica collection by Mobital come in a set of four for coordinated value seating that is still fresh and fashion-forward. The streamlined design means you can place them anywhere in your home as a whole set, in pairs, or individually for supremely versatile accent seating.
