Height Ideas For Kitchen Bar Furniture – For most people the breakfast bar in the kitchen is somewhere to sit for a few minutes while you grab a quick bite to eat or drink your morning coffee with one eye on the clock. Most of the time the short period that you spend sitting here is due to the bar stool. Many people purchase bar stools that aren’t comfortable for more than maybe 10 minutes and this has a detrimental effect on the kitchen as a whole. Before we get into the specifics of bar stools it is worth mentioning that you should opt for a design that allows you to sit on the stool for extended periods of time.
Breakfast kitchen bar furniture is the same height as the rest of the kitchen worktops. Most of the work surfaces have a height from the underside of the work surface to the floor of just under 1 meter (90 cm). You need to measure it first however we know that this kind of height is quite common so a kitchen bar stool with a seat height of around 65-68cm is recommended. This will allow enough space to sit comfortable and will be high enough so that you aren’t stretching to reach to the top of the breakfast bar. A good rule to follow is to measure the height of your breakfast bar to the floor and your seating height should be around 22-25 cm below the underside of the work surface.

We have already seen how the height of a kitchen bar furniture stool can affect the comfort of sitting at the breakfast bar however it has more far-reaching consequences. For instance a bar stool that is low down can look out of place in the kitchen and one that is too high can be uncomfortable to sit in and take away from the overall design. If you want your kitchen or home bar to look and function as it should then the height of your bar stools is something to take into consideration. Not only does it affect comfort levels and how long you can sit in the stool itself but it also contributes to the design and look of the room.
