Ready to rearrange your home bar set? Or have you finally found the space to create the brand new bar nook? With plenty of choices in bar stools, we are here to guide you and help you make the right choice from the best seats to fit your bar or bar table right.
First, and most important thing is to select the right height for your stool, to become a perfect matching piece for your bar or table. You might come across few common names, while searching for the stools with the FurniturePick: counter height, bar height and extra tall stools. With our today’s guide, it is quite easy to determine the height for the stools to work the best way with your counter, bar or pub table.
Twice measuring is highly recommended to be precise in your estimation. Height of bar or bar table is usually 41-43”, so the bar stool should be 29-32 inches seat height to match the bar or the classic bar height table in a perfect way. You might be interested what actually the ‘seat height’ means. It is the estimated height from the floor to the seat of the bar stool or chair. Counter-height bar stool is from 23 to 28 inches from the floor to the seat, which makes it the ideal pair for 35-37” counter-height table. And, finally, extra-tall bar stool has 33 to 36-inch seat height. This type of bar stools pair 44-47” height tables.
Think about features you need in your bar stools set. You might like to have leather/faux leather, upholstered or totally wooden or metal chairs/stools. With or without seat back and armrests, adjustable, stationary, swivel stools and chairs – the choice is broad.
Estimate the quantity of bar stools you need. Take into consideration, that distance of 26-30 inches between the centers of the stools is good for providing enough space for everyone to enjoy meal and a social drink in comfort.
Speaking of seat width: the bigger – the more comfortable, from the other side – it does take more space. Take into consideration the quantity of bar stools you want/need, and decide whether you are able to allow spacious bar stools. Usually, the manufacturers provide 15, 17 or 21 inches wide chairs. You should allow at least 6 inches between stools for a convenient seating arrangement. Still, we recommend to have more space in-between the stools/chairs for a more comfortable socializing.
Moreover, as a rule 10-12” should be left between the stool seat and the underside of your bar counter or table. For instance, if your counter measures in at 43 inches, a seat height of 30-32” is just right.
