The first thing you need to decide upon is the proper height. Most stools were originally all 30 inches tall. This is the height of all of the ”pub” stools that we are all familiar with. More recently, bar stools have been made available in a lower 24 inch height. This shorter type of stool is perfect for children, people with mobility problems or at breakfast bars. Both barstool heights are readily available and most styles are offered in your choice of height. The shorter versions tend to be less visually obtrusive and fit well in small spaces.
A 30 inch stool size is the most practical seat height for home use, given its versatility. A 30 inch stool height is designed primarily for bars and counters that are 40-45 inches tall. This seat height works great as pub stools in your home bar, billiard room and game room, as they add ambiance and atmosphere to your activity area, while providing a spot to sit and spectate or wait for your next turn. This stool size also works well for garage work and repairs at a tool bench or workshop. A 34 inch height does exist, but is a custom made size. Typically, there is no specific use for this stool size unless you have a bar with a height of 46 inches. If not, then practical purposes for this particular stool height are quite uncommon.
30” bar stools are commonly used for a raised eating surface in the 40 to 42 inch height range. Many homes and apartments today are built with a standard 36” high counter, then have a back splash and raised eating area. In most circumstances, if the eating area is HIGHER than your standard kitchen counter, you will need a 30” stool. 34” and larger bar stools are used for counters that exceed 42” in height. Please double check your measurements before ordering a 34” seat height. These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them, but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24” to 30” range.
Knowing what height, what fabric, finish, material and how many bar stools can fit your particular installation before hitting the stores can greatly enhance your bar stool shopping experience. Many people expect to find just a few styles of bar stools and are overwhelmed at the thousands of options available. This article should help you in selecting the perfect stool for your home or business. Most people require either a 26” or a 30” bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36” high, you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top, standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops, chances are you have a standard height counter top.
