What You Should Know When Shopping For Swivel Bar Stools

Aug 17, 2007
Swivel bar stools are not only convenient and functional, but they can be stylish additions to any home. When decorating your house with stools, you'll want to consider your home decor and choose a set that matches your overall theme. Swivel bar stools can be purchased in wrought iron, wood, steel and many other materials. You can also find them with or without upholstery as well as other embellishments.

When you consider bar stools for your home, think of them as decorative pieces as well as something fun. Children and adults alike really appreciate the special features in swivel stools that give them their "fun" and functional characteristics. Not only can you spin around to take in the whole room, make it easy to talk to anyone, many stools are also easily adjustable, for convenience and comfort.

If you're looking for counter or bar stools to match the breakfast bar in your kitchen or a pub table or bar in your den or game room then swivel bar stools are well worth considering. One of the many benefits you will get from these is that you don't need to drag them around every time you want to change positions of the stool. Since they can rotate around 360 degrees, it's easy to position them to a comfortable setting, and swivel barstools are perfect for socializing.

When selecting bar stools, you should keep a few things in mind. First off, you want to know which height you need for your particular counter or table. Bar stools come in seat heights ranging from 17" to 31" and you must select a stool where the seat will be comfortable in relation to the counter. Too high and you will be bending down to reach the table, too low and you will feel like a little kid at the "grownups" table during holiday dinner!

In order to get the best fitting stools, you'll need to have selected your pub table or counter top ahead of time. Measure from the floor to the bottom of the counter or table then buy stools that allow 10 - 13 inches between the stool seat and the bottom of the counter. So if your counter is 41" from the floor, you will want a stool whose seat height is about 31" tall.

The other thing to consider is how many stools you need. Often times when buying bar stools, you want a set to sit around a bar or kitchen breakfast counter but you don't want to overcrowd the area with too many of them. The rule of thumb here is to allow 26 to 20 inches between the centers of each of the bar stool seats.

Relaxing swivel bar stools can be an enjoyable way to entertain guests, and with the selection of styles available, you're certain to find great barstools that will coordinate perfectly with your style of home decor.
