Breakfast Bar Table and Stools – There are many uses for stools in the kitchen, but there are also many different heights of counters and bars, and their proper stools can get confused. Check the height of your counter or top bar before buying any kitchen stools.
A typical bar is approximately 40 inches to 42 inches high. For such a breakfast bar table and stools height, a bar stool should be approximately 30 inches high on the top of the seat. A breakfast bar raised in a kitchen or a bar-height table will require bar-height stools so that people can eat and drink comfortably. Standard kitchen countertops are 36 inches tall. Counter-height bar stools are 24 inches to 26 inches tall. These types of counter stools are perfect if you have a kitchen island or peninsula where you want people to be able to eat and gather. A bar-height stool would be too high in this situation.
In measuring, kitchen tables are regularly only 28 to 30 inches high, so kitchen chair fittings are usually only 18 inches away the ground. While perfectly comfortable at a dining table, a kitchen chair is too short for kitchen countertops or breakfast bar table and stools.
