What to know about bar stool sizing

Choosing a stool size is important for keeping yourself and your guests comfortably seated. You’ll find tall stools & kitchen counter options come in different seat heights. While seated, your elbows should be able to rest comfortably on a 90-degree angle on your counter, and your knees should also be at a 90-degree angle while your feet sit on the footrest. A standard kitchen counter runs at height of around 900mm, and requires a shorter breakfast stool residential seat height of roughly 660mm. Taller applications commonly observed in restaurants, bars and cafes with bar leaners or high counters are typically 1050mm high and require a seat height of around 760mm. We advise measuring up to avoid your legs feeling squeezed, and hassle associated with buying the wrong option.
