BAR STOOL MEASURING & BUYING GUIDE

BAR STOOL MEASURING & BUYING GUIDE

The endlessly versatile bar stool provides casual seating and a way to change include a more conversational area in your kitchen. Go rustic, modern or somewhere in between. We’ll help you decide which will fit your needs for both seating and style.

Updating your bar or counter stools can be a great way to bring new life into an old space. Mix things up a bit and go with a style that you’ve been craving. Turn that unused bar into your new breakfast nook or a counter into a quick, weekend lunch station.

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.

What's your style?

There are so many to choose from. From a traditional pub look with dark wood, bonded leather and nailhead trim to a simple solid wood finish to go in you farmhouse-inspired kitchen, you'll find the seating that will help you express your own unique style.
