Contemporary Kitchen and Bar Stools

What’s the difference between contemporary kitchen stools and bar stools?


The main difference between contemporary kitchen stools and bar stools is their height. Kitchen islands tend to shorter than bars, and therefore kitchen stools also tend to be shorter. The average kitchen stool is approximately 60cm in height whereas the average bar stool is 75cm.

What height contemporary stools do I need?


The height of your stool will depend on the height of your countertop. As a general rule of thumb the height of your breakfast bar stools should be around 30cm less than the height of the underside of your countertop. Measure the from the underside of counter to the floor and then subtract 30cm to find the appropriate height for your bar stools.
