High Top Table And Chairs

Home bars are a fantastic investment in your home's resale value and can make your parties and family nights more lively. Although they usually include some bar seating, this is limited to 3-4 seats in most homes.

A high top table and chairs can make the silhouette of your home bar more dynamic,and the extra available seating is ideal if you regularly host small get-togethers. Having a table in or immediately next to the bar makes it much more convenient to use the area.

One of the key considerations for a high top table and chairs is balancing seating with the available space. Most high top tables seat 2-4 people. If you love a particular high top table that doesn't seat as many people as you'd like, consider buying two of them.

Another factor is the overall stability of the table and chairs. High top tables are top-heavy and have a higher risk of tipping over. Look for tables with a solid base that is wider than the tabletop or a low center of gravity. If you're concerned about stability, consider pub- or counter-height tables, which are higher than standard tables but lower than full bar-height tables.

High top tables typically use metal frames and a wood or tile top to balance strength and stability. All-wood high top tables are an option, but solid wood is heavy and less impact-resistant. Manufactured wood (MDF) is an option for tabletops and legs and is available in a massive range of shapes, styles, and finishes.

Many tables use chairs with backs, but some high tops have stools instead. Although chairs are more comfortable for sitting for long periods, stools are easier to get in and out of. High top table chairs are almost always armless since arms make them significantly harder to access.

Typically, high top tables come in a modern or contemporary style, with sleek round or square seating and tabletops. They are usually in dark or earthy tones to add sophistication and depth to a room. However, you can find an assortment of unique options online. When choosing a high top table and chairs, opt for a style that coordinates with your current home bar decor to create a cohesive look.
