The Height of Diningby Heather on Jan 20  •  • 1 Comment
In this fast-paced world we live in, we could all use a little “lift” don’t you think? Especially when it comes to your dining room! Today, there are more dining options than ever before with many different styles AND heights of tables and chairs to choose from.
The Rule of 6 Inches
You probably never got on your hands and knees and measured the height of your kitchen or dining room chairs, but that’s OK… we’ve done the work for you! A traditional dining chair is 18 inches high from floor to seat. If you take it up a notch (literally) a counter-height (sometimes called a pub-height) set is six inches taller coming in at 24 inches. And if you really like your feet off the ground, a bar height dining room is definitely more your style. And that’s another—you guessed it—six inches higher at 30 inches from floor to seat.
Traditional Dining Height
This type of dining set is one that will never go out of style. A timeless classic, the Ashton Collection is ideal for more traditional or formal dining spaces. A rich blend of cottage and traditional style, details such as fully upholstered chairs with stylish nailhead trim and elegantly turned legs offer a touch of class to any space.
The counter height dining option is often a taller version of many of our existing collections. Take a look at the new Americana II Collection! Perfect for eat-in kitchens or cozy breakfast nooks because of its comfy and casual-cool style, a counter height set is a terrific and easy way to update your family’s favorite dining spot.
The tallest of all the dining set options, bar height tables and stools can be a fabulous way to set the tone for a fun and informal dining experience. Call it a “ManCave,” game room or basement bar, a bar height collection is an excellent addition for livening things up! Take our collection of bar stools for example. With plenty of fresh looks to choose from, you’re sure to find something that’s perfectly suited for you.
