Labels for Tables: How Tall is Counter Height?
When it comes to dining room furniture, there are three main table heights: standard tables, counter height, and pub or bar height. Recently customers in store have been asking: how tall is counter height?

Home Trends: Counter Height for Casual Dining
While they’ve been overshadowed by traditional styles in the past, counter height tables have recently been a hot home trend. Their popularity is due to a few reasons.
First, they can fit in smaller spaces than a regular kitchen table. They are able to fit in an eat-in kitchen space or breakfast nook. Therefore, you can forgo a kitchen table centerpiece if you’re lacking room. Another space-saving solution is to push a counter height dinette against a wall or counter and use only two chairs to save space.

In addition, standard table heights are traditional and sometimes formal. Pub sets and counter height table sets are more fun, and made for casual dining, which is preferable to many people. If you think about sitting on a bar stool, your feet dangle and you lean up against the table from a higher perch to eat or have a drink. This is the definition of casual dining.
Finally, it’s only the tabletop that’s higher on these sets, and not the price! Counter height tables are as affordable as they are functional. So, read on to see some of our featured favorites starting at just $298 for a five piece pub set!
