36 inch bar stools36 inch bar stools are the standard for all bars that stand 44-46 inches high in all hospitality establishments or even in some homes with tall breakfast bars. The typical size of bar stools that we are more commonly familiar with tend to be 24 inch stools which fit the normal 34-36 inch table or bar. The other size that we see repeatedly is the 42 inch high cooking or work surface which requires a 30 inch bar stool.

Common Styles of 36 Inch Bar Stools

  • Swivel Bar Stools:  They have the function of moving the seat from left to right with a simple motion of the body; they are commonly seen in bars and restaurants.
  • Counter Bar Stools:  Are typically the stools you most find in homes with no swivel action; more for counters that are around eating and cooking surfaces.
  • Outdoor Bar Stools:  Are better protected to withstand different weather conditions and can be found in outdoor patios, such as sports bars and bbq areas.
  • Elegant Bar Stools:  Are as simple as the name states, they are fancier bar stools for a more sophisticated look inside your home or an upper class restaurant.
  • Modern Bar Stools:  Have a cutting edge look to them, more of a futuristic appeal to them with a sleek feel.
