Stool Height Width Selection Info

Stool selection planning tips:

Seat height
For ease of movement, allow approximately 12" between stool seat and counter. For a standard 36" high kitchen counter that means the stool seat height should be 22"-24" and for 40" bar/cocktail counters the stool seat height should be around 28".

Number of stools
Add 3" to 4" to the width of the stool, then divide the countertop length by that number. For example, 16"-wide stools need a minimum of 20" width each.  A 72" counter would accommodate three 16"-wide stools.
Large people need more width, as do stools with armrests.
