Find Bar Stools in All 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.

How Tall is a Bar Stool?

Bar stools are typically between 16 and 40 inches, depending on whether you get bar height, tall, or short bar stools. Adjustable bar stools vary in 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 measure for bar stools? We’ll help you find the perfect size barstools for any use in your home. Measure the height of your bar or counter, from the floor to the top of the bar. Take the height measurement of the bar and subtract 10 inches – that will be the height of the stool you need.

How Tall are Counter Height Bar Stools?

Counter height bar stools are anywhere between 24 and 27 inches. If you're wondering what height bar stool you need for a 36-inch counter, a counter height stool is probably what you're looking for.

What are Different Types of Bar Stools?

Hayneedle.com is where you can find bar stools of all types and styles. Here are some of the most popular styles and ones we offer for you:

Counter Height Stools

A counter height stool is between 24 and 27 inches and is a great option for your kitchen counter. The legs aren't too high and hayneedle.com offers over 1000 counter stools.

Swivel Bar Stools

Ideal for living rooms, rec rooms, kitchens, and other entertainment spaces, swivel bar stools are rotation stools that come in all styles, materials, and finishes. Swivel bar stools are available in backless, cross back, ladder back, and high back styles.

Wood vs. Metal Bar Stools

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.

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.

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.
