Elevate Your Dining Experience with Counter Height Tables and Pub Tables

One choice you have when shopping for a dining set is the height of the table and chairs. For many of our customers, countertop height tables and pub tables are preferred for a number of reasons. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are leaning toward a taller dining set for your home.


Advantages of Counter Height Tables and Pub Tables

So, why would you choose countertop height tables and pub tables over those of standard height? For one thing, they take up less floor space in your dining area. Often, counter height dining sets are square, which makes them more compact than their rectangular or oblong counterparts. You still have the option of choosing a dining table that includes leaves to extend the dining surface, if need be. And that smaller footprint means that moving your counter height tables and chairs is easier.


Counter Height Tables, Pub Tables, Bar Tables?

You may have a question about exactly what defines a counter height table and pub table. Both terms apply to dining tables; counter height merely refers to how tall the tables are, which is typically between 35 and 37 inches. Pub tables and bar tables are often terms used interchangeably, but usually bar tables are a bit higher. If you or members of your family are taller than most, counter height or bar height dining tables and stools are preferred for their superior comfort.


Options for Counter Height Dining Sets

One of the most advantageous features of counter height tables and pub tables is that they can be used to extend the length of your kitchen prep area. Because their height is meant to match that of the counters in your kitchen, a counter height dining set can easily adjoin an island or the end of your counter space. Or, the counter height table itself can be used as your kitchen island, such as the Miller counter height dining table shown here. Who couldn’t use more room to prepare meals? Island-style counter height dining tables even incorporate storage drawers and cupboard space in the base.
