Standard Height vs. Counter Height vs. Bar Height Amish Dining Tables

What is the Difference Between Standard, Counter Height and Bar Height Amish Tables?

Table height is an important factor to consider when designing your new Amish dining set, entertainment space, or business seating layout. Standard, counter, and bar height tables have their own physical dimensions and seating requirements that make them most suitable for various events and spaces. While the most popular is our 30” high, standard dining room tables, counter and bar tables are more appropriate for some spaces.

When selecting dining room chairs or bar stools to complete your table, we recommend allowing a comfortable 8-12” between the top of the seat and the bottom of the skirting.

Standard Dining Room Tables

Countryside’s standard dining room tables measure 30” tall. Standard height tables are more common and therefore available in several more styles, sizes, and even hardwood types. Most people prefer these tables as they are more comfortable to sit around because their feet can easily touch the floor. While dining chairs vary in size, most wood seats measure 17-18” high, while upholstered seats are 19-20” tall.

Counter Height Tables

Our counter height tables stand 36” tall. Probably the same height as your kitchen bar or island countertop, these tables are casual and allow you to converse with others in the room. They can complement small spaces, breakfast nooks, or entertaining spaces with ease. Pair a 24” bar chair or stool with you counter height, Amish made table.

Bar Height Tables

Bar height tables, otherwise known as pub, gathering, or standing tables, stand an impressive 42” tall. Perfect for entertaining, bar tables typically have a smaller footprint and can fit into places where no traditional kitchen table could. We recommend using our tallest 30” seat pub chairs or stools with your gathering height table.

While tables can have different shapes, styles and sizes, the standard height of our dining, counter, or bar tables is consistent. Shop the categories below to get starting on your one of kind collection:
