The first thing you need to decide upon is the proper height. Most stools were originally all 30 inches tall. This is the height of all of the \"pub\" stools that we are all familiar with. More recently, bar stools have been made available in a lower 24 inch height. This shorter type of stool is perfect for children, people with mobility problems or at breakfast bars. Both barstool heights are readily available and most styles are offered in your choice of height. The shorter versions tend to be less visually obtrusive and fit well in small spaces.
If your horizontal (floor space) is limited, you may choose armless. Arms generally add 3 to 6 inches to the overall width of a single bar stool and can add up to 18\" in width on just 3 bar stools. (See \"How Many Do I Need?)
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.
New plastic resin stools are great for use on the patio, deck or at the poolside, as they are simple and easy to clean with a hose or damp cloth. Some of the resins used in plastic bar stools made for outside use are so resistant to the sun’s hot UV rays and weather that they remain looking almost new year after year. Many of these out door stools fold up for easy storage during cold weather saving room in your garage or storage shed.
The last feature that you may want your bar stools to have is a back rest. Back support is ideal for homes with children to ensure they have proper support and do not accidentally fall off when seated. A stool with a back rest may also feel more comfortable and natural for most as the majority of people are already accustomed to sitting in chairs with back support. Contrarily, backless bar stools are more traditional in appearance and the staple for typical bar seating that you might find at a restaurant or a pub. They also encourage correct posture by forcing you to sit up right while aligning your spine. The option for a back ultimately comes down to comfort and what you are most familiar with.
