Heights Of Tables
Bar tables come in one of two heights. Regular bar tables have a height of around 90cm, which is perfect for use with bar stools, and also corresponds nicely to most bar counters and kitchen work surfaces. Bar tables are more compact than dining tables and so are ideal for smaller environments. This allows you to keep your kitchen at a uniform height. They also come in poseur height, which is around the 100cm to 110 cm height, and are usually made for standing at. However, they can also be used with higher bar stools which are designed to go up to poseur height. Due to the added height, poseur tables usually have heavier or larger bases to help with stability.
Sizes Of Tables
Tables come in varying sizes, from the low to the high, depending on your needs and depending on the style that you are after. Dining tables are the norm, with a tabletop height of around 75cm, give or take. They are designed to be used with dining chairs and often sit at the same height as desks, which is why they are often used as thus! Dining tables come in a larger range of shapes and styles than bar tables as, due to the lower height, they are inherently more stable and thus they can be made into forms that would be impractical at bar table heights.
The last group of tables are occasional tables. These are usually items of furniture such as coffee tables, which sit at around 45cm to 50cm. Being lower again than dining tables, these occasional tables are some of the most stable tables you can find. Due to this, coffee tables can be found in a myriad of designs ranging from the conservative to the more adventurous. Occasional tables are not really designed to be sat at due to the height, but make ideal partners to sofas in living rooms, or placed in the corner of a room or corridor for miscellaneous items.
