Look at the length of the breakfast bar and from that work out how many stool will fit comfortably along it. Bear in mind that people will swivel on the stools and knees will knock if they are too close together. Most of our stools are quite wide and they all include a swivel feature.
If you choose a swivelling stool you will need to determine exactly how far it is going to swivel. You could go for 180 degrees, or you could opt to have it spin for the full 360. This isn't always an easy decision, though giving the full 360 can sometimes be a bit bothersome. It is not unheard of for a swivel stool to become loose and send someone spinning. Is it likely? No, but that doesn't mean it won't happen. When you are running a bar you need to prepare for the unexpected and take pre-emptive action.
Choosing the perfect bar stool is all about realizing what the bar stools are going to be used for, and what types of bar stools you actually need for that purpose. If you are just looking for a set of stools to have sitting around in the kitchen, perhaps something to sit on in front of the stove or while chopping onions at the counter. If you have the type of family that likes to sit and talk with you while you cook, bar stools are great for this purpose as well but in this case the best type of bar stool is the classic high stool, with a foot rest halfway up the length of the leg and no back to it. Not only are these stools easy to move around, but they are more easily stored than other bar stools, in linen closets or under kitchen counters.
