Timber Bar Stools
Bar stools are perfect seating options for kitchen islands, counters and breakfast bars. They are both functional and stylish, while the variety of designs available ensures that there is one that matches your home decor. Timber bar stools create a warm feeling and work best in cottage style homes. Learn more about the features of bar stools and pick one or an entire set for your home.Seating Style
The back height of the stool determines how comfortable it is to sit on. Backless stools are best for quick breakfasts and you can easily tuck them away under the counter when not in use. Low-back stools provide some support and look modern. Full-back stools are very comfortable to sit on, while stools with arms are even better for longer gatherings. Stools with arms typically have low or full back.Stool Height
The height of the bar stool depends on the height of the kitchen island or counter. Measure the distance between the underside of the counter and the floor. Counter-height bar stools measure between 0.6 to 0.7 metres and pair well with counters that are 0.9 metres high. Bar-height stools measure between 0.74 and 0.8 metres and are suitable for counters that are a bit higher than a metre. Extra tall stools are 0.84 to 0.9 metres and are for counters that are more than 1.1 metres high.Designs
Timber bar stool frames are usually from high-quality hardwoods and bring a traditional look to your home. These could be either hard stools or leather stools with soft upholstery. Bar stools can come in all kinds of colours and the upholstery largely determines the style.Number of Stools
The width of your bar determines how many stools you can fit under there. Allow about 0.7 metres between the centres of the stools or about 15 centimetres between the stools, so when all the stools are occupied, people would have space to socialise and move away if necessary. Obviously, the number of stools also depends on how many people normally sit around the counter.
