How To Choose Bar Table And Bar Chairs For Outdoors?

Oct. 11, 2022

Enjoying a drink with friends is a great way to catch up. The most likely focal point of the gathering will be where you sit - a combination of high tables and bar or counter chairs, perfect for chatting and relaxing.

In addition to standard outdoor furniture, have you considered a bar with stools or counter-height chairs? You'll choose garden furniture that is modern, practical, and versatile!

You have three main options when it comes to choosing the right bar furniture.

Standard-height chairs and tables, just like regular dining chairs and tables.

Slightly taller chairs, known as counter chairs, work well with kitchen counters.

The taller chairs, known as bar chairs, are designed for breakfast bars and drinks bars.

The type of chairs, table, and bar you choose will depend on your personal preferences. Taller bar and counter chairs can make a space look more spacious and add sophistication and style to any outdoor space.

Choose the right table for your bar or counter

While your bar and counter chairs and stools are important, you and your guests need a place to rest your drinks and snacks. Depending on how many people you are likely to be entertaining at a time, you can decide on the shape and size of the bar table you need. 

Match the size of the bar table to the number of people you want to serve. You may want to use slightly larger tables than usual so that you have enough space for guests and others to use. Even if you don't use all the tables all the time, the extra space will make it a little easier to walk around, sit and relax.

Choose the right bar stools or counter chairs for your space

The real challenge with a bar or counter is choosing the right chairs. As well as style, form and function, the main thing you want to explore is height. Here's how it works.

Bar-height chairs and stools are usually between 28 and 33 inches high and work best with bar height tables, usually around 40 to 42 inches.

Counter-height chairs and stools are usually between 24 and 27 inches high and are best paired with counter-height tables, usually around 34 to 36 inches.

You will need 9 to 13 inches from the seat of the stool or chair to the base of the table.

Choose a chair or stool with a footstool so that your legs don't get tired.

If you have a chair with arms, make sure it fits your bar.

Leave a few feet between the chairs.

  • Versatility: by placing the bar and some stools or counter height chairs in a strategic position on the deck or next to the pool, for example, with just a few accessories, you can create a snack area, a lounge area, or a diverse range of themes, including tropical and exotic.
