Q: How high should bar stools be in relation to the counter?
A: Dining table height ranges from 28-30 inches from the floor to the top of the table, so your chair or stool height should be 18-20 inches, or about 10-12 inches between the top of the seat to the table. Counter height is between 35-37 inches, so a counter stool seat will be 24-26 inches, again about one foot between the top of the chair and the counter. Bar height is 40-42 inches to the top of the table, and a bar stool seat measures 30-32 inches. Any counter higher is considered custom, but the one-foot rule still applies.
Q: How many bar stools does one need for a space, counter or table?
A: In order to answer this question, you need to know that you should allow 26-30 inches between the centers of each stool. This gives adequate space to eat, drink and socialize. If you allow that space, then you can add as many chairs as possible that allows your guests to maintain that space. Remember, if your stools have sides or backs and swivel, you will need about 6 more inches between the centers (32-36 in all).
Q: Should one choose stationary or swivel bar stools?
A: Swivel stools require more space than stationary stools. But swivel stools allow guests to sit down without pulling them away from the counter, which could save you some wear and tear on the floors and add a bit of ease. Stationary stools allow for more seating to fit in a defined area.
