What bar stool height fits best under a counter?
We have height measurements for nearly all of our stools with arms. Check these measurements, or else the stools might butt up against your countertop and you won’t be able to tuck in.
Most of our stools with arms fit under standard counter overhangs, but it’s important to double check!
What if your counter has an underhang?

If you plan to move the stool between different height counters, we recommend an adjustable height stool.
Adjustable stools are also great if you’re very concerned with ergonomics and want to get the perfect height.
