What is Counter Height?

Counter Stools

Counter Stools

Many people ask me the difference between counter height and bar height. It is a pretty simple answer. A standard bar is 42 inches while a standard counter is 36 inches. Now, life would be very simple if all builders followed those simple specs. If your builder decided to pursue his own vision, we have you covered. Our floor mounted bar stools can be made in any height up to 30 inches. This allows us to make a 26 inch stool if your builder built your bar 4 inches short. A floor mounted counter stool is probably the best solution for bars of unusual height or any location where fixed seating adds to the style and decor of your establishment. Our counter stools are built just like they were in the old days using cast iron and steel. Our stools are the ones you typically buy with the restaurant because they have been there for so long. If you are looking for new stools, please contact us at 800-929-5792.

How to remove Counter Stools

Floor Mounted Stools

Remove floor mounted stools

If you purchased good counter stools for your restaurant, you may have noticed they are not easy to remove.  If you were not the person to install them, you may have no idea where and how they even attach to your floor.  If you are using counter stools purchased from BarStoolsandChairs.com. you will have no trouble removing them.  Our counters tools require a special wrench built by the manufacturer.  This wrench goes inside the column of the counter stool to remove a large bolt that attaches the stool to the floor.  After you have removed the bolt, you can pull the counter stool off of the floor.  Once the stool is removed you will see what type of floor attachment was used to connect the stool to the ground.  Most counter stools attach to concrete floors.  You will have some trouble removing the floor attachment if it is attached to concrete.  If you have a wood floor, you will be able to removed the wood plate very easily.

Mounted Bar Stools

Mounted Stool

Mounted Stool

Mounted bar stools are the best bar stools to put in front of a counter in a diner or cafe. Mounted bar stools stay put and always face forwards. It is easy to clean around mounted stools as well. The most important reason to use mounted stools at your counter is that they come in any height. Most counters are not the standard 42 inches or the standard 36 inches. If a counter is not one of these two heights, it is really hard to find a bar stool that will fit. Most bar stools only come in 30 inches and 24 inches. The custom mounted stools sold at BarStoolsandChairs.com can be manufactured in any height. If your counter is 39 inches tall, you can get the perfect 27 inch counter height stool.
