Looking for a quick and inexpensive way to update your existing room without diving into a complete makeover? Try a new stool or two. My bar stools and counter stools are super stylish and I have plenty of options for any look. Plus, Bob’s Discount on stools makes it possible to update your home without breaking your budget!
To help you find the perfect stool, I created the Ultimate Stool Shopping Guide.
This guide should help you narrow your choices and decide which will best fit your needs—for both seating and style.
How to Find the Right Stool Height
In terms of height, not all stools are created equal so you want to make sure you select a stool that best fits the use of the room and the existing counters and furniture. Start by measuring the counter/table height. Also, take into account at least 10 to 12 inches of legroom. Then, use my handy chart below to determine the size of the stool you need.
How to Select The Right Number
The number of stools in your seating area should be determined by the amount of space you can leave between each, especially if they swivel or have arms! Use the width of the stool as a guideline to determine the proper spacing between stools. If the stools up to 18 inches wide, leave at least 6 inches in between each. If they’re over 18 inches wide or have armrests, leave at least 8 to 10 inches in between each.
Finding the Right Stool Style
Before making a decision on which stool is right for your space, it’s important to consider both your comfort needs and style. My team and I are constantly on the lookout for the best styles and values. Here is a sample of some of my different styles:

Dolan Counter Swivel Stool
My Dolan Counter Swivel Stool boasts an industrial flair look that is sure to catch the eye of all your guests. The fully upholstered seat and 360-degree swivel seat bring total comfort to your space. Available in counter or bar height.
Swivel & Lift Function
Add to your stool’s functionality by going with a swivel seat or an adjustable stool. Swivel stools allow you to easily turn in your seat. Stools with a lever allow for smooth adjustment of height.
Most bar and counter stool frames are made of either metal or wood. Wood stools can offer a more traditional look, while metal options range from rustic to modern.
