These stools are available in lots of different sizes, styles, shapes and materials so you need to do your research before going shopping. First of all, it’s important to select the right height for the stools. Measure the height of the counter and calculate the height the stools should have.A bar, for example, is between 40” and 42” high, in which case a seat height of 28” to 30” is required for the bar stools.

After going through two styles dominated by rough designs and rather bland colors we now redirect our attention towards the mid-century modern designs which incorporate a little bit more colors, bold shades as well as more delicate and subtle looks.

When talking about bar stools, this translates as sleek and simplistic creations often featuring dynamic colors in order to become a focal point in the overall décor.
Of course, the backrest isn’t the only thing that makes a bar stool comfortable. Its entire design and structure are important.

For example, decide whether you want a swivel system or not and, if you plan on getting a backless design, the seat should be padded and big enough to be comfortable.

Some designs have seat back, others don’t, some have armrests as opposed to others which are simple plus other distinctions such as between swivel and non-swivel stools, upholstered and non-upholstered models, adjustable and stationery designs, etc.
