What height bar stool for kitchen island?

There are a number of things to consider when buying the suitable designer bar stool for your kitchen island. Let's start with the height of the bar stool. The general rule is to assume a seating height of no more than 30 centimeters below the kitchen top. If you have a kitchen island with a height of 95 centimeters, then a seat height of up to 65 centimeters would be ideal. (95 centimeters - 30 centimeters = 65 centimeters) There is a margin of a few centimeters, because some people prefer to sit a little higher or lower than others. At Detjer we have wooden and rattan bar stools available in different heights.

How many cm for bar stool?

In addition, it is important to know how much space to calculate in width for a bar stool. After all, how much space does a bar stool actually take up? And how many designer bar stools can you place at your kitchen island? You can assume a maximum of 60 centimeters per bar stool. This means that a bar of 3 meters long can accommodate 5 bar stools. (300 centimeters / 60 centimeters = 5 bar stools).
