Measure Your Counter Height

Before your start browsing for stools, the first step is to measure! To determine if you need counter height stool or bar height stool you need to measure the height of your table or counter. Keep in mind you need 9″-13″ between the seat and the counter for seating comfort.

To accurately determine your counter or table’s height, measure from the floor to the top of the surface. 

Whether the stool is for a bar, a counter, or a table, most have standard height ranges.  However, actual surfaces in your home may vary, so it is always important to measure. 

Once you have measured the height of the surface, it is a rule of thumb that a stool is about 10 inches shorter; this allows room to sit comfortably with legs crossed. To determine the stool’s exact height, measure from the floor to the top of the seat. 

Decide How Many Stools You Need

It’s important to provide enough space between stools for people to eat, drink and socialize without bumping elbows. Especially at a kitchen island which is usually the center hub of a kitchen. Here are the rules of thumb we use:

If the widest part of your stool is 16″-18″ allow 21″-22″ of space per stool.

If the widest part of your stool is 19″- 22″ allow 24″ to 25″ of space per stool.

If you choose stools that swivel and/or have arms, you’ll need to add a bit more space between stools.

Identify Interior Style of Your Kitchen

Whether the style of your kitchen is traditional, rustic or contemporary, you can find a stool that complements the look. If you already have a lot of wood, try mixing it up with metal stools. Keep an open mind, and you’ll find just the right look for your kitchen. Mixing textures, patterns and materials yields beautiful results.
