The ideal height of your bar stool
Don't know exactly what height bar stool fits your kitchen island or bar table? We understand that very well! That's why we, from Furnwise, explain how to find the right height for your bar stool in this blog so you can enjoy hours of comfortable seating and dining.
Take some measurements
The bar stool height is determined by 3 factors:
- Measure the height from floor to the top of the table top
- Take 30 cm from this height
- Check the seat height of the bar stool
Example: You measure 100 cm from the floor to the top of the kitchen worktop or bar table top. Then take 30 cm from the top. 100 cm - 30 cm = 70 cm. So the ideal sitting height of your bar stool is at least 70 cm. Do you really want to do it right? The optimal distance between the height of the seat and the top of the table top is 27 to 28 cm.
Your search for bar stools for your kitchen island or bar will start with filtering a minimum bar stool seat height of 70 cm.
PLEASE NOTE: Do you have a thick tabletop? If so, always check whether there is at least 10 cm between the top of the knee and the bottom of the tabletop when sitting.
Adjustable bar stool?
In our product range we have several barstools available. One of the differences between our bar stools is that they are adjustable in height or fixed. Both types of barstools have their advantages and disadvantages.
Do you sit at the table with people of different lengths? Then an adjustable bar stool might be something for you. These bar stools are often adjustable in height up to 20 cm. This allows every person to sit very comfortably.
But we also offer fixed barstools. These barstools undergo less wear and tear because they do not have a gas spring and are not continuously adjusted in height. Also, fixed barstools are generally slightly more stable because they stand on 4 legs. Especially in families with young children this can be a consideration to go for a fixed bar stool.
Which one to choose?
We understand that all these options, differences and also styles (industrial, modern and retro) can make it difficult to choose the right bar stool for you. Please contact us and we can help of course!
