The first thing you need to decide upon is the proper height. Most stools were originally all 30 inches tall. This is the height of all of the ”pub” stools that we are all familiar with. More recently, bar stools have been made available in a lower 24 inch height. This shorter type of stool is perfect for children, people with mobility problems or at breakfast bars. Both barstool heights are readily available and most styles are offered in your choice of height. The shorter versions tend to be less visually obtrusive and fit well in small spaces.
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.
