The Chair People's Standard Height

Our standard bar stool height of 700mm is a versatile choice that works well with most kitchen islands and breakfast bar counters. This height allows for comfortable seating while still providing ample legroom beneath the counter. It's a popular choice for its balance of functionality and style, making it suitable for a wide range of home decor styles.

Crafted Considering Your Needs And Preferences

To cater to your specific needs and preferences, we offer additional bar stool seat heights at an extra charge. These include 650mm for when you want that extra leg space or have a particularly thick worktop, but also 750mm and 800mm seat heights which are suitable for a Home Bar.

It's crucial to understand that adjusting these measurements naturally alters the overall stool height. However, the seat-to-footrest height remains consistent throughout this adjustment process. This ensures that you can tailor the bar stools to different counter heights and achieve an ideal fit for your specific space.

Choosing the Right Bar Stool Height

Selecting the right bar stool height is crucial to ensure comfort and functionality in your home. Here are some factors to consider when making your decision:

  1. Counter/Worktop Height: Measure the height of your kitchen island or bar counter. Ideally, there should be around 200mm of space between the seat of the stool and the underside of the counter for comfortable seating.
  2. Legroom: Ensure that there's enough legroom beneath the counter so that you and your guests can sit comfortably without feeling cramped.
  3. Aesthetics: Consider the overall look and style of your home. The bar stools should complement your existing decor and add to the visual appeal of the space.
  4. Usage: Think about how you plan to use the bar stools. Will they be primarily for casual dining, entertaining guests, or simply for decorative purposes?
