How To Take Measurements
Measure the height of the bar or counter by starting from the floor and measuring to the bottom of the surface. Do this at least twice to ensure accuracy. Bar stool heights are about 28-30 inches to fit under a surface with a height of 40-42 inches. While counter stools range from 24-27 inches for surfaces with a height of or tables 35-39 inches.
How Many Do You Need?
Start your measurement at the center of one stool to the one next to it. You’ll want 26-28 inches between them. Second, make sure you have 14 inches from the center of the last stool to the wall or edge of the counter. This makes it easy for everyone to get in and out with ease.
