Bar stools Buying Guide

Bar stools are a versatile piece of furniture that serves multiple purposes. They can serve as extra seating in your kitchen or dining area, a place to enjoy drinks at the bar, or a comfortable spot to sit and work on your laptop. With so many options available in terms of design, material, and style, choosing the perfect bar stool can be a daunting task. Here is a complete guide to help you with your barstool buying decision.


The first thing to consider when shopping for barstools is the seating height. The rule of thumb is that the height of the stool should be around 10-12 inches less than the height of the counter or bar. If the stool is too short, you'll feel cramped and uncomfortable. If it's too tall, you'll have to slouch or raise your arms, which can lead to back pain. Most standard barstools have a seat height of 26-32 inches.

Barstools are available in a variety of materials, including wood, metal, plastic, and upholstery. The material you choose will depend on your personal preferences and the style of your decor.

  • Wooden stools are a classic choice and come in a range of finishes, from light to dark. They are durable and easy to clean, but they may not be as comfortable as other options.
  • Metal stools are sturdy and modern, but they can be a bit heavy and may not be as comfortable as other options. Plastic stools are lightweight and easy to clean, but they may not be as durable as other materials.

  • Upholstered stools are comfortable and come in a range of colors and patterns, but they can be harder to clean and may be more prone to wear and tear over time.


There are various designs of bar stools available in the market. For example, a backless barstool is perfect if you want to save space and have a minimalist look. It is simple in design and does not take up much room. A swivel barstool, on the other hand, allows you to turn in any direction. This feature is perfect if you need to move around while sitting. A backrest provides more comfort and support and is ideal if you plan on sitting for long periods. The footrest is another essential feature as it relieves pressure on your feet and legs, making it easier to sit for longer periods.


The style of the barstool you choose should complement the rest of your home decor. If your kitchen has a rustic feel, you may want to opt for wooden barstools with a natural finish. If you have a modern kitchen, metal barstools with a sleek design may be a better option. For a pop of color in a neutral room, look for brightly colored plastic barstools. If you have a small space, a stackable or folding barstool can be an excellent option as it can be easily stored away when not in use.


A comfortable barstool is essential, especially if you plan on sitting for long periods. Look for features such as padded seats and backrests. Also, make sure that the stool has a comfortable footrest at the right height. The weight limit is also essential to consider, so be sure to check the manufacturer's recommendations before purchasing.


Bar stools come in a range of prices, ranging from budget-friendly options to high-end designer pieces. Consider your budget before making a purchase, but keep in mind that a higher price does not always guarantee better quality. Look for quality materials, comfortable designs, and features that meet your needs and preferences.
