First Things First...Measure Your Existing Counter or Table
In order to determine what type of barstool or counterstool you need, measure the table or counter that they are intended to be used with. Measure the distance from the floor to the top of the table. It is recommended to have a 10-12 inch difference between your table top and seat (Ex: a 42" table top works best with a 30" stool.) 

It is also important to measure the overhang of the table. Tables with a wide overhang may need a certain height stool. For example, it might seem best to purchase a 32" stool for a 42" table, but if there was an overhang of 6", it might be more comfortable to use a 30" stool instead. Once you have these measurements, you are ready to decide what height or type of stool you need.
Get To Know the Bar Stool Lingo
Chairs and bar stools, like other furniture, have industry-specific terms that you'll often see when browsing our site. Knowing what types of stools will match your table or counter height is important before purchasing the perfect product:
Dining Height: Dining Tables are typically around 28"-30" high. Therefore, the dining chairs that match these tables usually have a seat that is 16"-18" high. However, you can also use shorter backless or swivel stools that measure 18" high.
Counter Height: Counter Height Tables are typically around 35"-36" high. Therefore, the counter stools that match these tables are usually in the 24-26" Range. Counter Height furniture is typically used in casual dining setups, pub sets, and home kitchen islands.
Bar Height: Bar Height Tables are typically around 40"-42" in height. Correspondingly, the bar stools are in the 28"-30" range. Bar Height furniture is most commonly used with home bars but can also be found in some pub sets and counter set ups.
Extra-Tall or "Spectator" Height: Extra-Tall tables and bars are typically around 45"-48" high. Therefore, the tall barstools that match these tables are usually in the 32-34" Range. Spectator Height furniture is typically used in commercial settings such as bowling alleys, pool halls, restaurants, and home bars.
Custom Barstools: Furniture Made Your Way
Not every bar and counter will fall within these mentioned standard height ranges, and your own comfort and preferences may not match these previous examples. Luckily, there are options. We carry a number of custom height barstools with a seat heights ranging from 24" to 30" and every measurement in between. We also carry chairs and small stools with a seat height as low as 18"-23" for lower tables. Remember the recommended distance is 10-12 inches from the top of the table to the seat height. 

Every person is different and therefore what works best will be different. It is important to think about what will meet your individual needs. A taller person may feel more comfortable with a bar height set. A smaller person may select a 32" stool for a 42" bar. The most important thing that you can do before making your purchase is to measure out the sizes of what you would be getting and make sure that it works for you.
Selecting the Perfect Number of Barstools
The last question many people ask is how many stools are enough? Knowing how much room to give each stool is important to creating the perfect bar or table environment. Here are some tips of the trade to allow for enough room in between stools: 

  • Stools ~16"-18" wide: allow for 21"-22' of space
  • Stools ~19"-22" wide: allow for 24"-25" of space
  • Swivel Stools or Stools with Arms: allow for even more space

The Bar Stool: The Ultimate Home Kitchen Extra

Author: Bill William

The home kitchen is a part of the home that enjoys an unusually high amount of attention within the field of home design and furnishing: it is the area of the home where food and liveliness abound, and therefore the kitchen understandably brings out the best in people and their home. Over recent years, kitchen design has gone through some radical, exciting changes, and today's models of kitchen furniture and decorations are incredibly pleasing. There has been a marked trend towards adding a home bar to the kitchen or next to it, independent of the dining table, with bar stools included. The mood that this sort of arrangement can accomplish for your home is very enjoyable, classy, and is sure to be a winning combination in any home.

Bar stools themselves are a wonderful item of furniture. They utilize space economically, they are ideal for both sitting and standing situations, and-when done right-they are incredibly comfortable. The bar stool has traditionally been used for accommodating large amounts of people in restricted spaces, yet there has been a tendency toward including the bar stool into the home furniture line up, and the results have been wonderful all around. There are now more styles of bar stool available than ever before, and no matter what kind of kitchen or home bar area you have, there will be a kind of bar stool that will optimally suit your home aesthetics.

Modern styles have generally tended towards high-perched bar stools, well over the 30" mark, with relatively high lower footrest bars. These kinds of stools are preferable for a home kitchen with a bar that is also relatively high standing, with the effect being that the room itself takes on a slightly more drastic air. Of course, whether or not you will want to have high stools and a high bar will depend on what kind of house you have. With a kitchen and dining area with very high ceilings, then it will be a good idea-aesthetically speaking-to have a high bar with high stools; a low-ceiling kitchen area will of course be better suited towards a mid-level bar and stools, at around the 25-30" range.

Materials will ultimately define what kind of bar stools you want to get for your home (or, if you happen to be a business owner, your bar or restaurant perhaps), and today, thankfully, it is pretty easy to find bar stools made of high-quality, sturdy materials for relatively reasonable prices. Classic looking bar stools usually are made of deep, richly toned wood though it is increasingly common to see metal (or partly metal) stools, which increase sturdiness. As far as cushioning is concerned, it is pretty common to see polyurethane foam being used for the seat itself, though older bar stools will probably use some other material for the cushioning.

No matter what kind of bar stool you do end up buying, be sure to take a look at as many different options as possible beforehand, as you will be surprised at just how many different kinds of bar stools there actually are out there.

Bar Stool Articles On Why Adjustable Bar Stools are Superior

Author: mario oreilly
For a lot of bar stools it is usually important to be the right height for what ever task they are required for, be it a bar counter or a kitchen work top.

This for the most part is good, but consider if you will the added advantages of having an adjustable bar stool. If you use bar stools more in your house or in your bar or restaurant it is a good chance that you will see the advantages that an adjustable bar stool will offer when you want convenience and ease of use.

In restaurants and bars, the call for for bar stools that move is not as important as it usually is for uses in the home environment. Such establishments are inclined to have static bar stools that match the décor of your establishment. Owning bar stools that are adjustable is not necessary but having them around is handy especially if you like to change your decor a lot.

Where adjustable bar stools really shine through is in your home, where the same bar stool might need to be used for various purposes. When you have friends or family over to visit, adjustable bar stools can then be used to provide convenient dining and drinking at the kitchen counter or games room. If the bar stools are to be used by everyone in the household then owning a bar stool that can be adjusted to different sizes and height would be extremely useful, in comparison to static bar stools that may be too tall for your young ones.

Bar stools that can be adjusted would not need changed when u decide to buy new furniture. It is because of this they are better-quality long-term investments and should exist in your home for many years, even if you move house or change the design of the one you live in now

If you decide to start looking for adjustable bar stools to buy, look for stools that not only move up and down, but also forwards and backwards. This will increase its value and uses available to you. As an example a bar stool that can be adjust both in height and seat position, this property can make all the difference maximum comfort and an uncomfortable experience, especially for those who have a larger frame. Or, it could be nice for friends or family who enjoy having a beer or 2 and conversing about there day.

The idea is to maximize a stool's usefulness in all kinds of situations and with many different people. There's no doubt that an adjustable bar stool makes good sense all around.
