Tips For Choosing the Right Bar Stools

Last updated 7 years ago

Whether you are redecorating at home or furnishing an entire restaurant with bar stools, there’s a wide variety to choose from. Consider the following tips for choosing the right bar stools for your home or dining area:

Height and Space
The most essential thing to consider when picking out new bar stools is height. Measure the space from the floor to the underside of the counter, as well as the length of the counter to get an accurate layout. Be sure to leave about 10 inches to a foot of space between the seat of the bar stool and the counter. Give your guests plenty of elbow room—if you want to seat your bar stools with comfort in mind, width must also be considered.

Consider all these options while you browse for new bar stools:

Material: Bar stools are made of many materials, from wood and metal to plastic. Consider how casual or fancy you want your bar to look. Stools upholstered with leather are not only comfortable, but also add a touch of luxury. If you have wood furniture, consider wooden bar stools for a complementary look.

Features: Some bar stools are simple and have fixed seats. There are also swiveling bar stools, height adjusting bar stools, bar stools with back and arm rests, and even options with foot rests!

Color: If your home bar or kitchen is lacking color, consider using your bar stools to spice up the décor. Coordinate colors with existing decorations and furniture.
