Stool Chair: Choosing the Right One

A stool chair can add functionality and style to your space. The most common stool chair is the table height, bar height and counter height. In choosing the right stool stair for your home, there are certain things to consider.

The first thing to measure the height of your table or counter to determine the ideal height when purchasing one.

Table Height Bar Stools

These are shorter than the counter and they can work as alternatives to stool chairs at the table.

Counter Height Stools

These are normally suitable for a 36 inch counter height, and slightly smaller than the stool chair you see in bars or restaurants. This stool is perfectly suited for your kitchen space or home bar.

Bar Height Stools

30 inch stools are suitable for a 42 inch counter top or bar. These bat stools can also make a great addition to other workspace areas such as the garage. They are the same size stools that you’ll normally find in a bar or restaurant and they are much taller than the common dining chair.

You also need to make additional measurements when choosing bar stools, and these are the spaces between the stools as well as the space between the surface height and stool.

For the perfect spacing between your tools, you need to measure about 30 inches from the center of one tool to the one next to it. Doing this will allow for optimal space for socializing, eating and working.
