Explore our collection of counter and bar stools to find attractive and comfortable options to make your kitchen more functional. Add stools around an island to create a conversation area for socializing while you cook, or create a breakfast nook for the kids at an open counter. Beyond the kitchen, find a selection of stools to use with counter-height or pub tables to enhance other dining areas. Whether you're looking for a pair of bar stools, or you need several counter stools for the entire length of your kitchen island, you'll find seating solutions from Safavieh, Armen Living, Elk Home, Deny Designs, and other top home brands at Riverbend Home.
Choosing the Right Bar Stool Height
The first step to finding the right bar stools for your kitchen is to measure from the top of your counter to the floor. For the most comfortable seating, you'll want to allow for 10 to 12 inches between the stool seat and the underside of your counters. We offer counter-height, standard, and extra-tall bar stools, so you can find the right height to suit your space. If your kitchen counters are a standard height, typically between 35 and 39 inches, choose counter stools with seats that measure between 24 and 27 inches from the floor. Bar stools typically measure 28 to 33 inches tall, and work best with a counter or bar between 40 and 43 inches tall. Have an elevated island or bar? Extra-tall bar stools with seats more than 34 inches from the floor work best for counter or table heights between 44 and 47 inches.
Bar Stool Styles & Features
Footrests, backs, cushioned seats, and armrests are all features that increase the comfort of kitchen stools, which can be as attractive as they are functional, complementing the décor of your space. Classic X-back wooden bar stools add instant farmhouse appeal to your rustic space, while elegant upholstered bar stools offer a dressier aesthetic. Lustrous metal, clear acrylic, and leather are materials well suited for modern or contemporary décor, while wicker or rattan counter stools boast a distinctly beachy or boho vibe. Aesthetically pleasing as well as practical, saddle bar stools and other backless options create a sleek look and tuck easily under the edge of the bar or counter in a galley kitchen where space is limited.
