Outdoor Bar Stools

Patio bar stools make the perfect seating arrangement for outdoor parties. Their simple design, coupled with weather-resistant materials, make them easy to arrange in a way that maximizes space but doesn’t sacrifice style. If you have an outdoor bar or kitchen, outdoor bar stools will provide enough room for all of your guests to have a comfy place to sit.

What height should my patio bar stools be?


The height of each outdoor bar stool depends on the height of the counter it’s paired with. The height is measured from the top of the seat down to the feet and doesn’t include the backrest if one is included. Typically you can find outdoor bar stools in 4 different sizes:
• 34 to 36 inches: 44- to 46-inch high counter
• 30 to 36 inches: 40- to 46-inch high counter
• 24 to 29 inches: 34- to 40-inch high counter
• 17 to 23 inches: 28- to 30-inch high counter

How much space do I need between each outdoor bar stool?


You’ll want to ensure your guests have enough space to easily slip in and out of their seats, so the spacing between each stool is important. A general guide is to leave 26 to 30 inches between the center of each outdoor bar stool and 8 to 14 inches between the center of an end stool and the edge of the counter.

What materials do outdoor bar stools come in?


Naturally, you’ll want your bar-height patio furniture to be made from weather resistant materials. Some options include:
• Aluminum: A durable choice, aluminum is also a popular choice thanks to its lightweight characteristics. This makes it easy to move your seats around if needed.
• Metal: Though rust can be a problem with metal stools, it still offers optimal durability and support.
• Wood: For a rustic or organic look, wooden patio bar stools are the perfect choice. They tend to be fairly durable, but may require regular maintenance.
