As for a dollar amount, the average higher-quality bar stool should be in the $199 to $349 range regardless of where you shop. Stools with special features such as tilt-swivel mechanisms, real leather seating, casters or custom heights may cost as much as $400 to $600 each. Some designer hand carved wood stools with multi-step finishes can cost $1,000 to $3,000 each. If your budget allows you, try to upgrade from the RTA bar stools to welded construction. They will last longer, be safer for you and your family, AND should allow you the ability to customize the height, fabric, and finish you want.
You may even think of buying unfinished oak bar stools so that you can get the finishing done by yourself. You can have a light finish or a dark finish according to your wish. You can also use wood wax that can protect oak from the vagaries of weather and other elements. Wood wax can greatly improve the natural color, grain and beauty of these stools. Of all the factors you should look for, you should lay greater stress on durability. Only then, you can have these oak bar stools for a long, long time. If you opt for buying cheaper oak stools, they may snap soon and you will have to spend again to buy new stools.
You can purchase stools just about anywhere at any price. Many of the major ”Big Box” stores offer different styles and heights at very competitive prices. They typically are ready to assemble and have few, if any options. Many full service furniture stores will offer bar stools that match popular furniture groups however may not sell them apart from high-top dining groups. If they do not offer stools by themselves, you should consider looking for a specialty store.
You should ensure that the stools are made with a solid piece of oak wood and poplar or gum is not mixed with the wood. Sometimes, more pieces of wood are laminated together and this makes the stools more vulnerable and they will be affected by varying temperatures. This may cause warping and cracking. Especially, if the stools are kept in the kitchen, due to the heat in the kitchen surroundings, warp and distortion in shape may take place. This is because the glue used for putting the laminates together will get affected by the heat of the kitchen.
