How to Choose the Right Bar Stool Height

This guide will equip you with the knowledge to navigate the world of bar stool heights and find the ones that make your space sing.

Measure Your Counter

First things first, grab your trusty tape measure and determine the height of your countertop or bar. This crucial number will be your baseline for choosing the ideal stool height.

The Golden Rule of 10-12 Inches

Aim for a stool seat that's 10-12 inches lower than your countertop. This magic number provides ample legroom for comfortable seating and conversation.

Standard vs. Counter vs. Extra Tall

The world of bar stools comes in various heights, and knowing the categories will help you navigate the selection.

Consider the Footrest

Footrests are like tiny thrones for your feet, offering extra comfort and preventing that dreaded leg dangle. Opt for stools with built-in footrests if your countertop is on the higher end, especially if you plan on perching for extended periods.

Don't Forget the Look and Feel

Choose stools that complement your overall design theme, whether it's sleek and modern, rustic and cozy, or anything in between.
