Did your new barstools just arrive? Are you hopelessly jamming your thighs under your benchtop, or do you look two feet shorter than usual sitting far too low struggling to eat breakfast? Either way, here is the concise and simple barstool measurement guide to sitting pretty all the time – let’s see if we can do this in 200 words...
Australian Benchtop heights are quite standard. The most common heights are either 90cm or 105cm (900mm or 1050mm for the tradies) – you should have either one of those two.
Barstools for a 90cm Benchtop
If this is the rough height of your benchtop, look for a barstool approximately 65cm tall.
This will give you about 25cm of wiggle room.
Barstools for a 105cm Benchtop
For a taller benchtop, opt for a barstool with 75cm of height – giving you 30cm of empty space.
These options are roomy and generous so you won’t be bumping your knees under the bench again!
