How many bar stools do I need?
One of the most important decisions when buying bar stools for your home or for your bar is to figure out how many bar stools you need. Most people recommend allowing 9-11 inches between swivel bar stools and at least 6 inches between non swivel bar stools. Many of our higher end bar stools are 21 inch wide swivel commercial bar stools. If you have a 20 foot bar, we would suggest 8 or 9 of our 21" swivel bar stools. For a 7 foot bar, we would recommend 3 bar stools. Feel free to message us if you need any help figuring out how many bar stools you need for your given space. Just send us the width of the bar stool, and the length of your bar.
Most bars are 42 inches tall and go with 30 inch bar stools. Most home counters are 36 inches and go with 24 inch bar stools. The general rule is that you want the bar stool to be about 12 inches shorter than your counter. The same thing goes with chairs. Most chairs have a seat height of 18 inches and go with 30 inch high tables.
