Just bought townhouse. Going to update kitchen with new white cabinets, new countertops and appliances but for now need to buy table and can’t decide on height. The table in photos in old owners. Counter height or standard??
Personal decision. I would not buy one because I don’t care to have my feet off the floor.
Table height is much more comfortable for dining- counter or bar height is fine for quick meals or a drink.
Counter height barstools or counter height chairs which is is best choice or can you mix chairs and barstools
Counter height kitchen table or regular height??
Windows to low for standard counter height - need help
Need help choosing a counter height table or standard for brkfst rm
Is there really anyone who prefers sitting at a counter to being able to sit at a regular height table with feet comfortably on the floor?
FWIW, your pictures have a dining area and I don't know anyone who has a counter height dining table. Even in large kitchens which used to be called "eat in" kitchens, I prefer a kitchen table where people can be comfortably seated for meals or congregating in the kitchen.
I'm tall, so counter height would work for me. I can sit at our island and my feet do touch the ground. But...if you are shorter, or have kids, they really aren't that practical.
The only place a pub height table belongs is in a pub and possibly a game room with a pool table.
No question. With an 8 ft ceiling, if you want the area to be spacious, keep the height at 29" Change out the light fixture above the table to possibly a bronze metal fixture and install drapery panels on the windows and consider a patterned rug
I experienced the taller dining table in two different beach houses I have rented and I definitely don't like them. I am a tall person, but I can't pull the taller chairs (and bar stools for that matter) in closer to the table, once I am seated, the way I can with a regular height chair. So I usually hunch over to reach the table (not good for posture), or I have to place the tall chair/bar stool close to the table and try to squeeze in to sit down. If there are arms on the tall chairs or bar stools, squeezing in is not a good option. Tall chairs are definitely not a good idea for shorter height people or children.
I actually like counter height seating but would not buy a table that height. It is a casual, occasional use setup, not an everyday use
Counter Height OR pub height, they make a space look more closed in. Not the best for elderly or kids. Get a dining table!
Lose the "breakfast height" wall for counter height:) and an even more open feel to the entlire space.
I have friends with a counter height dining table, and it's good for parties where people are milling about, because people sitting and standing are at similar heights for conversation, but it feels a little uncomfortable for a real meal.
Not even close: standard height. I love to watch all those people balancing on the counter height stools when they try to move. They sort of jump with the chair in or out. Also, these are horrible for posture, unless you want everyone hunched over..
We've rented houses with the taller tables, and I absolutely hate them because they are so uncomfortable after a short period of time.
Leaning towards these 2 standard height tables, would the rectangular or pedestal look better?
How many chairs do you want?
4 for now but may add 2
Pedestal is more flexible for seating Because legs limit seating if you want to fit it people.
I have an oval table with a pedestal. I have four chairs but if need be I can pull up additional chairs and no legs to limit placement.
I like the pedestal, but only if it’s sized for the room. I have a 60 inch one that I have 4 chairs for but can add up to 4 more in a pinch.
