jillhenderson40 I just worked on that in dealing with my cottage project I'm building. The average between stools is actually 26-30" measured from the center of one stool to the center another to make sure there is plenty of room if they are all occupied. If a table is against a wall, you can leave 13-15" between the wall and the center of the chair or stool. There is plenty of wiggle room!

Yeah, I was confused too on what the measurements were and did a bit of research to get a clear picture. Makes a big difference measuring center to center because one can have all different sizes of stools and chairs. Hope this helps.

jillhenderson40, you're absolutely right; we corrected the copy to say "allow 30 inches for each stool." Thank you!

The industry standard is 26-30" between centers of each bar stool or chair regardless of size of the stool. This is the diagram I used in designing the seating for my island. My current island has larger space between chair centers since I didn't want 3 chairs at my island - just two works nicely for me.
