Jacqualine Pruvost Bar Stools January 30, 2018 18:19:02
Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. As a general rule of thumb allow 24" from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests.
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining game rooms commercial bars etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
