How many barstools should I get and what type?

Determining the number of barstools you should get depends on several factors, primarily the size of your counter or bar and the available space. Here are some guidelines to help you decide:

Barstool Style: The style of barstools you choose can impact how many you should get. Backless barstools usually allow for a tighter arrangement, while barstools with backs might need more space.

Measure Your Counter or Bar: Start by measuring the length of your counter or bar. You will want to leave some space between each barstool to allow guests to sit comfortably without feeling cramped.

Spacing: A good rule of thumb is to leave about 6-10 inches of space between each barstool. This spacing ensures that people can sit and move around comfortably.

Functionality: Consider how you will use the space and the number of people you typically entertain. If the area is primarily for casual dining and you usually host smaller gatherings, you might need fewer barstools.

To sum it up, the ideal number of barstools is a balance between the size of your counter or bar, the available space, your typical guest count, and the comfort and aesthetics you desire. Take measurements and consider these factors to make an informed decision. It’s a wise practice to have a few spare stools for larger gatherings, and if you frequently host larger groups, consider planning for additional seating to ensure your guests are comfortably accommodated.

How Tall Should I Get?

When determining the ideal barstool height, it is essential to consider the height of your bar or counter. Here is  a general guideline to assist you in selecting the appropriate height:

Counter Height Barstools: These are typically designed for counters or bars that are around 36 inches high. The ideal seat height for counter-height barstools is usually in the range of 24 to 34 inches from the floor to the top of the seat.

Bar Height Barstools: For taller bars, which are approximately 42 inches high, you will want bar height stools. These barstools usually have a seat height of 28 to 34 inches from the floor to the top of the seat.

Adjustable Height Barstools: Some barstools come with adjustable seat heights, allowing you to customize them to fit your specific counter or bar height.

Remember to measure the height of your counter or bar from the floor to the top surface before purchasing barstools, and consider adding an additional 10 inches or so between the top of the stool and the bottom to allow for a comfortable gap to ensure that your guests can sit comfortably.
