We know barstools | Free Shipping
Spectator height bar stools are at least 34 inches from the seat to the floor and are designed to give you a good view out of a window, over a swimming pool, or across your home’s game room. Nowadays, they’re primarily found in kitchens and home bars with a countertop of 44-46 inches.
Spectator height stools were originally designed for billiard halls to give spectators a better view of the game. Their height provided an unobstructed view of the pool table and the angles of the shots.
These are ideal for homes with counters or bars that are higher than the standard 42 inch. If you have counters that are 44-46 inches high, they’ll pair perfectly with a 34 inch spectator stool. This height will give you 10-12 inches between the seat of the stool and your countertop.
Larger people may require more distance, and shorter people, less. Depending on your comfort level, a 34-inch spectator height can be used at a 48 inch high bar.
Please be sure to measure the height of your counter before choosing the seat height of your bar stool. You can even visit your favorite local bar or restaurant to test the seating height. For more tips on how to choose the right seat height, click here for our guide.
Many spectator stools are built for use indoors or outdoors. They go great with a tall pub table on the deck, balcony, or pool deck. They’re also a natural fit for outdoor bars, which tend to have high counters. Our outdoor stools are treated to withstand the elements such as rain, snow, and sun.
