Wrought Iron Counter Stools

All of our wrought iron counter stools are available in a variety of finishes and seat options allowing you to customize your stools to fit you own unique style and taste. We offer metal counter stools in all sorts of styles, from traditional to contemporary. Wrought Iron Counter Stools differ from bar stools in height - Counter Stools typically have a 24-26 inch seat height which is 5 inches shorter than your standard bar stool which has a typical seat height of 30 inches. Since counter and bar heights can vary, it's important to measure the height of your dining surface before deciding what kind of stool you need. Helpful iron counter stool purchasing information.

What is a Counter Stool?

A counter stool may have a pedestal, 3-leg or 4-leg base and a seat that is approximately 24-26" from the floor. In addition, counter stools are designed with arms or no arms, backrest or no backrest and swivel or stationary seats.

What height counter stool do I need to purchase?

Choose a stool that fits the height of your counter, usually 35-39-in. height from floor to dining surface. As a general rule of thumb for maximum comfort, the distance between the stool's seat and your counter surface should be 9 to 12 inches. That measurement remains the same no matter the counter or table height.

How do I know the number of counter stools to buy?

To figure out the optimal number of stools that will fit at your counter, measure how much space you have to work with. Then remember counter stools with arms and backrests require approximately 21-30-in. of space because the arms and backrests make them wider. Additionally, counter stools without backs or arms need 18-21-in. of space.

Here are two tips for general spacing of counter stools:
  • Allow 4-6-in. between counter stools for comfort and room for guests to get out.
  • Measure 25 to 30" from the center of one stool to the mid-point of the next seat.
