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 want arm rests or swivel features ensure that the height of the stools is less than the height of the breakfast bar. High back bar stools can fit comfortably partially under the bar. If however you want you put the stool away chose a lower back bar stool.
