The Difference Between a Bar Stool & Counter Stools
Knowing the difference between a bar stool and a counter style is critical. A counter stool is as a rule around 24″ and normally used at a kitchen counter. A bar stool is around 30″ and intended for sitting at a bar.

Counter height seats range from 24-29" from the floor and are ideal for kitchen counters or tables that are around 34-39" high. A seat is around 30-36" are ideal for counters or bars that are 40-46". If your kitchen area is small, consider a backless stool. This will give the appearance of more space. A bar stool without arms and backrest will easily slide under the breakfast bar. For a larger areas , pick one with a backrest or armrests for added comfort.
Are you going to sit in the stools for long periods of time? If so, you should consider ones with padded seats, armrests and high backrests for comfort.
