Centering on the Barstools is a Good Way to Build Your Bar

Aug 13, 2008
The most important part of your home bar is the bar stools. The bar stools will help create your bar's theme, and they'll definitely be the place where you and your guests will naturally gravitate to during parties and other social gatherings.

When you begin your bar stool search, you should consider the functionality of your bar stools even before you consider the style. This may be even more important than, and should be done before, choosing the theme for the bar.

The most important thing about your bar stools is their height. Most typically, the seat of the bar stool will be between 11 and 12 inches below the bar top. So, whether your bar top is countertop height (35"-37") or you're purchasing stools for a tall cafe table (44"-47"), matching the stool height to the bar top height should be the first priority in your selection.

Next, you should think about the foot rail on the bar stools. You more than likely won't need to get bar stools with foot rails if your bar has the traditional foot rail attached to it. However, if your bar doesn't have the foot rail attached, you will probably want to choose bar stools with foot rails. It's very uncomfortable to sit at a barstool and have no place to rest your feet.

Another feature to consider is the back of your bar stool. If you anticipate long periods of time spent sitting on your bar stools, backs are likely necessary. Especially if you have a TV in your bar, you're going to want to have a bar stool that allows you to sit back and relax. To comfortably sit on a bar stool for any length of time, a back on the stool is helpful.

Another facet of the bar stool's functionality is whether or not it swivels. Swivel bar stools usually offer more comfort than stools that don't swivel. And if you have bar stools that don't swivel, then the floor under the bar stools will definitely be spoiled as a result of scratching and get worn out earlier. As an extra precaution, you should put floor protectors on your bar stools' feet to keep your floor free of scratches.

Once you have considered all the functional features of your bar stools, you can now think of adapting them to the planned "theme" of your bar.

If you're attempting to create the art deco look of the 1920's and 30's, it may be hard to locate 33" stools along with foot rails. The same way as it may be difficult to locate 24" bamboo stools that swivel.

Designing your bar around your bar stools, although there are many styles and sizes to choose from in both new and antique bar stools, is often a good idea.
