People also ask, how many bar stools do I need?

We recommend 26" – 30" between the centers of each bar stool. This leaves at least 6" between each seat so you can get into and out of your seat easily and not bump elbows with anyone. Wider stools should have even more room between seats, with 8" – 10" between stools that are 19" – 22" wide.
