Exclusive Media Tables for Teleconferencing

| Conference Rooms, Industry News, Office Design, Office Tables

How often do you find yourself seated at a rectangular table in a conference room, straining to see around the heads and chairs of your coworkers in order to view the same presentation or video conference as everyone else? There is a reason that the White House cabinet room doesn't include a table with 90 degree angles – the best way to give everybody a clear view is to provide a table that is designed in a shape fitted for its specific purpose. In this case, you don't need a rectangular table, you need a table with two sides that angle towards your focal point, allowing each and every attendee to clearly see the presenter or screen.

What is the Difference Between Standard, Counter Height and Bar Height Tables?

| 30 Second Office Tips, Office Design, Office Tables, Problem Solutions

In short, the difference between standard, counter height and bar height tables is:

  • Standard Table Height is 28” – 30”H
  • Counter Height is 35” – 39”H
  • Bar Height is 41” – 43”H

  • As you can see, standard table height is the shortest of the three followed by counter height and then bar height. There are a number of pros and cons to all three table sizes, and we know how tough it can be when you’re trying to decide! Here’s a quick snapshot of the differences to help you make the right choice before outfitting your business’s café or breakroom.

    What is Standard Table Height?

    Standard table height is 28” – 30”H. The biggest benefit to standard size tables is that they are the most common, meaning you’ll be able to find them in a much broader range of styles, sizes and price points. These tables accommodate standard size chairs, which are also available in a much wider range of styles for the same reason. Even if your breakroom isn’t entirely outfitted in standard height tables, there should be at least a couple of these options available for disabled employees to use.

    How Tall Are Counter Height Tables?

    Counter height is 35” – 39”H. These taller options must be used with stools that have a seat height of 24” – 27” tall. Benefits of counter height tables and stools are that they can give a space the illusion of being less crowded. In addition, these types of tables are much easier for employees to stand at for a more casual dining experience.

    What is Bar Height?

    Bar height is 41” – 43”H. Bar height tables are often confused with counter height tables, but bar height options are, in fact, taller. These tables must be used with stools that have a seat height of 28” – 33” tall. This is often the type of table and stool combination you will see at restaurants and bars, hence the namesake. Bar height tables are the most casual of the three options, and they are most often tall and skinny, making them ideal for small breakrooms and cafes.
