When making the decision about which kitchen bar stool to purchase, one your main issues is going to be whether to go for a fixed height stool or a gas lift bar stool.
To be able to decide exactly which type of kitchen bar stool to go for, you need to know the counter height you will be sitting the bar stools at. Once you’ve got this, you will need to measure about 250mm â€“ 300mm down from the underside, to give you a seat height range. This will be the important measurement you need to keep in mind when purchasing your kitchen bar stools.
Because its always easy to over look certain benefits and disadvantages to having one type of kitchen bar stool over the other I have created a list to help you.
