Barstools and Counter Stools Buying Guide

Helpful informaton in selecting barstools and counter stools!

Barstools and counter stools come in many styles, materials, sizes, finishes, fabrics, and prices. Some people prefer metal barstools, while others prefer wood barstools. Others enjoy barstools that swivel or barstools that have arms. Sometimes it's important to be able to coordinate a barstool with a dining set.

What size do I need?

The general rule of thumb is to have 10"-13" between your barstool seat height and your table height. Barstools come in 4 sizes:

  • 17"-18" regular table seat height
  • 24" counter stool seat height
  • 26" counter stool seat height
  • 30" barstool seat height

How many stools do I need?

A good estimate is about 21" per stool for small stools, and 24" per stool for larger stools. Measure the length of your counter or bar in inches and divide by either 21 or 24. Width dimensions are given on all detail order pages for each stool to guide you in this math.

Other Considerations

Usually, better made products have longer life expectancies and better warranties (see the warranty of one of our vendors). At TEMA-USA, we offer custom options with our barstools. Customers love selecting their custom finish and fabric for all Amisco barstools!
