There is always confusion to what differentiates a counter stool from a bar stool.
Counter stools have heights ranging from 60 cm to 75 cm from the ground to seat. Counter stools are more practical to be used in the kitchen of your homes by your island top.
Bar stools have heights ranging from 75 cm to 90 cm from the ground to seat. Bar stools are usually used in a commercial setting such as a bar or a cafe, where the table platform is higher.
Your table top or counter top should only be 25 cm higher than the seat height of your counter stool or bar stool.
