The stools in a bar say a lot about an establishment. While the food and service are important for obvious reasons, the furniture that the interior is outfitted with also plays a key role.

Although there are a number of items that go into a bar’s overall look and esthetics, the stools themselves are pieces that deserve a lot of attention.

And not only should bar stools be attractive, but they should also be comfortable for patrons to sit on, especially if they plan to stick around for a while. Further, the right bar stools should also be durable, long-lasting and easy to maintain and keep clean.

Bar Stool Styles

Several different styles of bar stools are available to furnish a bar with, including the following:

Bucket seats – For the ultimate in comfort, bucket seats allow customers to get cozy, encouraging them to hang out longer and order more off the menu.
High back stools – Not only are high back bar stools extremely comfortable, but they’re also incredibly stylish and have an air of sophistication to them.
Backless stools – As the name suggests, these stools only offer a seat and no back to rest back on. These take up less space and are better suited for smaller spaces and when more functionality and flow are needed.

Durability and Strength

Esthetics and comfort level are obviously important. But the durability of the stools is also a crucial factor to consider. After all, you don’t want to have to replace stools more often than necessary.

That’s why it’s important to consider the stool’s level of durability so they can withstand all the wear and tear from all the patrons moving in and out of the bar every day.

In terms of construction materials, wood and metal are extremely durable. Popular wood materials for bar stools include oak, mahogany, and walnut, which are all versatile in terms of colour as well. Metal stools tend to come in aluminum, steel, or chrome, and can also be finished in a customized colour to best suit the interior space.
