18 inch stool heights are typically the smallest size available, as shorter heights would be too small for anything practical for most adults. An 18 inch stool size is commonly used in areas where your counter, desk, or table is around 30 inches high. This stool size is typical in bathroom vanities and make-up tables. They have also been known to hang out in theater dressing rooms and casino slots.
As for a dollar amount, the average higher-quality bar stool should be in the $199 to $349 range regardless of where you shop. Stools with special features such as tilt-swivel mechanisms, real leather seating, casters or custom heights may cost as much as $400 to $600 each. Some designer hand carved wood stools with multi-step finishes can cost $1,000 to $3,000 each. If your budget allows you, try to upgrade from the RTA bar stools to welded construction. They will last longer, be safer for you and your family, AND should allow you the ability to customize the height, fabric, and finish you want.
Metal bar stools which are welded at all joints are far less prone to these problems. In addition, many companies have dozens of finishes, fabrics, and options available for a given style. For example, you may like a stool that is shown on our retail floor as a stationary (non swivel) stool with arms. In many cases you can custom order the same style as a swivel armless, swivel with arms, stationary without arms, or even a backless.
When space is at a premium in your bar or around your counter top, you will want to either get a backless adjustable height stool to take up the least amount of space, or you will go for a folding counter stool. A folding counter stool will collapse the back rest, the seat, and the legs into a single thin plane, and so flattened will become highly useful for stowing away, and for transporting it from room to room, and even to an entirely new place altogether, such as a second home.
Many full service furniture stores will offer bar stools that match popular furniture groups however may not sell them apart from high-top dining groups. If they do not offer stools by themselves, you should consider looking for a specialty store.
