High stools are not just for bars. Many people have “islands” in their kitchen, and this surface is not just for preparing food. Adding a couple of stools turns the island into an eating area, perfect for breakfast or lunch. Of course, the stools have to be the right height for the counter. If you get stools with arms, make sure the arms will fit under the counter, otherwise they will end up talking up extra space when not in use.

Ideally, you want a stool that will not only match the style of the counter, but also fit in with the rest of the room’s decor. A modern stool in a contemporary kitchen, a more classic look in a more traditional kitchen.
