FAQs on Stools & Bar Stools

How tall should bar stools be?

The height of a bar stool is relative to the user. If you're tall, you want to be able to reach your feet under the countertop. If you're short, having a lower seat will make it easier for your feet to reach the floor. Therefore, your barstools should range anywhere from 29 to 32 inches. 

What is the difference between bar stools and counter stools?

The main difference between bar stools and counter stools is the height. Bar stools are taller than counter stools and are designed to be used at a bar or high table, while counter stools are shorter and are designed to be used at a kitchen counter or island. 

Counter stools are typically 24 to 27 inches high at the seat and 34″ to 36″ inches high at the countertop, while bar stools are 27″ to 33″ inches high at the seat and 40″ to 42″ inches high at the bar or table.

Can I use a bar stool on a kitchen island?

First, you need to consider the size of your kitchen island. Typically, a kitchen island is about 36 inches high, 24-30 inches deep, and 48-72 inches wide. If you have a smaller kitchen island, you may only be able to fit two or three bar stools comfortably. If you have a larger island, you can always fit more stools based on your preference.


With the right bar stools, you can truly transform your space, and also create a home bar that exudes sophistication and charm, making it the go-to spot for entertaining friends and family.
