What is Counter Height? Counter Height Standard is 36". This is because base cabinets are usually designed to a finished height of 36". Counter height applications can be sets of 4 legs for a table, posts for kitchen islands and peninsulas, or stainless steel bases for breakfast nooks or counter top overhangs. Granite overhangs and standing work stations are perfect examples for how our counter height metal table legs can be used. In addition, our counter height table bases and legs are commonly used for kitchen island legs. We also offer glass top legs, for custom glass counters. Our legs and bases are made to handle all counter height needs for your home or office, and our stainless steel collection is perfect for any hospitality industry applications.
