In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.

These stools can turn around, which makes it easier for whoever is sitting in it to get on or off. They also don`t scratch up your floor as much, since you don`t need to push them around every time you want to get in or out. You can find swivel bar stools that are made out of wood or metal in lots of different styles.

Why are there so many variants of swivel bar stools for sale? The reason is simple: The swivel function enables an easy access to and an easy exit from the bar counter stool. Bar counter stools are typically 30 inches high or more, which is almost double the height of the sitting surface of a regular chair. So one practically needs to climb into a stool to seat in place. Consequently, there is no way one could push the chair closer to the bar or counter - the legs are hanging in the air when seated. Therefore, the way to get closer to the table, bar, or counter is to swing into it, hence the swivel option.

As a general rule of thumb, allow 24" from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter, 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests.

Despite the rectangular shape of the "floor plan" of the seat, you will be able to sit on the chair looking forward, as if riding, and straddling the chair with your legs, or you will be able to sit sideways, with your legs together, and your behind safely seated in the curve of the saddle seat.

Wooden western bar stools would then be upholstered with that cowhide leather, using metal round top tacks, which would provide a look of a western bar stool strongly resembling a horse saddle. Sometimes, a saddle horn would be added to one side of the bar seat to complete such horse saddle bar stool.

With their simple designs, they are easy to integrate into any bar setting. With some creative flair, one can turn them into eye-catching accents to any room. They are tall and narrow, made that way so that pub or bar patrons can sit and drink with the counter at elbow height or thereabouts. These often utilitarian seating options also have footrests, so that patrons would not experience discomfort from their legs hanging off the edge of the seat. This basic design of seat, long legs, and footrest, has been the norm since the inception of bars and public houses themselves. They have become so common that we tend to take them for granted. When was the last time you walked into a bar and took a good look at the stools before plopping down for a drink or two? Have you ever thought about how well these seats were designed for the specific purpose of being used at a bar? More likely than not, you are likely to be amongst many who have never stopped to appreciate the common and simple things like these. The next time you see one of these iconic seating items, try considering its history and style.

Bar stools should be just the right height, so they are comfortable to sit in, with adequate legroom, but close enough to the counter top for convenience. As a rough guide, aim for a gap of around 9 or 10 inches between the seat and the counter. Think about the positioning of your bar stools and leave enough space between each one for people to be able to move freely. Commercial style swivel bar stools can work well in home settings too, and are great for saving space.
