You can buy a bar stool for as little as $9. Typically bar stools less than $100 are ”RTA” or ”Ready to Assemble”. This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes, I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts, legs must be attached, seats must be attached, arms, back, seat frame, etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse, many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt’s threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally, lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color, one fabric, no options.
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. 24 and 26 inch bar stool heights are rather new and are designed to be used for counter heights of 36-39 inches. This seat height was designed specifically for kitchen counters, usually where there is no extra room for the conventional table and chairs. They can also be used at kitchen islands, given the island is the same height as a regular-sized kitchen table and not taller.
