Wood Bar Stools: Wood bar stools are typically offered in a few stains or painted colors. Look for chip-resistant finishes and/or stains which are sealed to protect the wood as well as the underlying finish. Look for metal protectors on the foot-rest as any painted or finished wood subject to the wear and tear of people’s feet will wear through over time. Many manufacturers intentionally distress their finishes to provide a used or worn look. Some more expensive wood bar stools feature rich, multi-step finishes that can be custom matched to you particular needs.
Even if you plan to purchase a bar stool that is pre-assembled, ask the salesperson if it is an RTA bar stool. Many retailers will pre-assemble the bar stool and sell it at a perceived \"UNBELIEVABLE PRICE\". Look for bolts holding legs and other parts together. Avoid these bar stools if they are going to be used on a continuing basis.
For those with a need to see what’s happening around them, there are swivel bar stools. When seated at a bar, it is easy to become curious about what’s going on behind you. The simple answer to keep guests more comfortable is to allow for swiveling. Sitting on one of these it’s nothing to spin to face the bar to make your order, and then turn the stool 180° to keep an eye on what’s going on behind you. For those with the backyard patio bar, this means while sipping your chilled juice (or whatever libation you favor) you can keep an eye on the kids.
You can purchase stools just about anywhere at any price. Many of the major \"Big Box\" stores offer different styles and heights at very competitive prices. They typically are ready to assemble and have few, if any options.
Backless stools take up less room than those with a back, saving space for more seating. This is also true of stools without arm rests. One of the main advantages that stools have over chairs is that they take up less space and allow for more seating places.
