How to Select a Bar Stool

Shopping for a bar stool may seem like an overwhelming task. There are well over 7,000 different stools to choose from, where do you start?  We're here to help.

Where to Begin

Let's begin by figuring out where you want your stool. Are you going to have it at a bar or a counter? You'll need to measure the height of your bar or counter. If the hight is between 34' to 36”, then you'll want to shop for a counter height stool. If the measurements are 40” to 42” high, then you'll want a bar height stool.
