Standard Bar Counter Height

Updated on June 27, 2013

Measurements For A Kitchen Counter

I'm compiling some info here from my ongoing research for my kitchen remodel - standard heights for counters, etc.. I figure it may be helpful to others since I had to find the pieces from several different sources. I'll add more as I go.

Standard and typical measurements

The standard height for a bar in your kitchen is 42 inches. This takes into account the typical stool which is 34 inches high. This is not a set requirement and there are other common heights which take into account taller stools.

The typical depth of a bar counter is anywhere from 12 to 24 inches (a placemat is typically 12-14 inches deep). I would personally go with a minimum of 14 inches.

The typical regular kitchen counter height is 36 inches.

The typical depth of the regular kitchen counter is 25.5 inches.

I Love Redesigning ...

I once bought a "Bob Villa" version of this. It was really simple but still worthwhile to help materialize the creative visions and to spark new visions and possibilities.

Well, here is the result of my researching and hard work. The bar counter that I always wanted. I made this from scratch, using two layers of laminated wood boards, three granite tiles (2 ft x 1 ft) and stained wood moulding edges. Turned out pretty well, I'd say. The full depth of the counter is about 16 inches.
