Bar Stools & Bar Chairs for You in Different Styles, Sizes & Heights

Now that you have created the perfect bar – one that's great for entertaining party guests, enjoying a meal with family, or just chilling with friends – you'll need the ideal stools to complete the package. From swiveling to stationary, seat height to adjustable footrests, and metal versus wood construction, these are all important aspects to consider.

Bar Stool Height

Nothing makes for a more inviting place to sit and chat than a bar stool. Whether it’s a quick breakfast spent with the kids at their kitchen stools or an evening spent on swivel bar stools with friends, find the perfect bar chairs for your home at Hayneedle. Not sure how to choose the right bar stool height? We’ll help you find the perfect size barstools for any use in your home. Start by looking at the following types of stools we carry:

  • Counter Stools: If you’re planning to place stools at your kitchen counter, then you’ll typically want counter height stools. These bar stools measure from 24-29 inches high and are ideal for tucking under kitchen counters or any table up to 39 inches tall.
  • Bar Height Stools: Bar height stools are slightly taller, with a seat that is about 30-36 inches high. Bar height stools also fit counters or most bars that measure 40-46 inches high. A home bar, outdoor bar or tiki bar will typically take bar height stools.
  • Extra Tall Bar Stools: Extra tall bar stools are going to be best for taller people, seating at high pub tables or higher counter heights that are popular in new kitchen designs. These tall stools measure 32-34 inches, are often sturdy metal bar stools and likely feature a foot rest, too.
  • Adjustable Height Stool: Of course if you want the ultimate in fit and function, opt for adjustable height bar stools and use your new stools anywhere you like.

Spacing Between Bar Stools

We all like to have a little elbow room, right? So when planning your purchase, be sure you calculate the amount of space you will need between each seat. It's such an important detail that there is even an industry standard. The suggestion is to allow for 26 to 30 inches of space between each stool. That way, everyone is comfy and can enjoy a drink or meal without spilling it on the person next to them.

Wood vs. Metal

There are two main materials to consider here: wood and metal – two different materials that present two different vibes in your bar area. Wood, especially with leather upholstery, is perfect for rooms with a darker decor, such as a "man cave" type of setting. Bar stools made of lighter wood, on the other hand, are ideal for a breakfast bar, or kitchen bar, in a bright, sunny room.

Metal makes a good choice, too, when you need versatility. They go well with all sorts of home decor, and are particularly ideal in a contemporary eating or entertaining area. In addition, they are more adjustable, which is nice when you have friends and family who come in assorted sizes.

Whether you go with metal or wood, you also have to decide between a swiveling or non-swiveling model. Swiveling styles make it easier for everyone to turn to their left or right when chatting. (Plus, they're fun to spin around in when no one is looking!)

Get a Lift

One more thing to look out for when shopping for metal bar stools is a covered piston. Be sure that the hydraulics or gas lifts are covered. No need to send guests home with greasy pants. Make sure that the pistons have a sufficient sleeve over them for protection.

Seat Upholstery

After you've picked the right height, the right construction, and taken into account the best spacing for your stools, it's time to look at the seat – the place where you take the proverbial load off. For wood styles that aren't upholstered you have the option of adding cushions, and since there are many designs from which to choose, it's easy to match the cushions to your decor.

If the stool comes upholstered, it's always good to have upholstery that's easy to clean and maintain. Materials like microfiber, polyester, vinyl, and leather are more stain-resistant and durable.

With so many choices of height, design, finish and function, you’ll enjoy shopping a wide variety of bar stools at Hayneedle. Our bar chair styles range from traditional to rustic, industrial to farmhouse and modern to Mission. In short, our selection gives you the flexibility to add the perfect bar stools to your indoor or outdoor space. So take a look, grab a seat and share a few moments with friends on your new favorite bar stools.
