Carry out measurements

Bar stools are different in height, so firstly, it’s essential to consider the most suitable height for your needs.

However, choosing a bar stool is a personal preference but you should also make ergonomics a key factor when buying a bar stool. You may need to take into consideration the space where you have to place stools, the wood colour of the kitchen bench with a bar stool, durability of the material since the heavier ones are not always stronger.
