Seating Measurement

How to Measure for Barstools

In order to choose the correct height of barstools for your setting, carefully measure from your floor to the top your counter or bar. Then, refer to the diagrams below in order to select the appropriate number of stools and their proper height.

Dining Chair Height

A dining table usually stands between 28" and 30" high. A dining chair whose seat height is between 16" and 18" would be required. However, you could also use shorter backless or swivel stools that measure 18" high.

Counter Height

A lunch counter usually stands between 35" and 36" high. A stool whose seat height is between 24" and 26" would be required.

Bar Height

A bar usually stands between 40" and 43" high. A stool whose height is between 29" and 30" would be required.

Extra Tall

Extra tall tables and bars are usually between 45" 48" high. A stool whose height is between 32" and 34" would be required. These heights are typically found in commercial settings.

How Many?

• When the widest part of the stool extends between 16" and 18", you must plan on a stool width between 21" and 22".
• When the widest part of the stool extends between 19" and 22", you must plan on a stool width between 24" and 25".
• Swivel stools or stools with arms will require even more space.
