How do I choose the right bar stool for my cafe/bar needs?

In essence, you need to decide on the material, whether that be wood or metal, or even a combination of both. This decided, you can  move on to a style that suits your décor or theme.

Industrial decors suit metal stools such as our Tolix stools. These come in a variety of colours and are durable, lightweight, and stack for convenience. Alternatively, you may want to consider a metal and wood combo. These combine a metal frame with a timber seat and/or backrest. Some of our favourites include the Detroit stool which allows you to adjust the height by swivelling the seat, our Hairpin stools and the Cargo stools. If you want a stool with a back rest, then take a look at our Bentwood styles.

To make the right choice of stool you’ll need to decide which option is most important for you. Busy cafes with a high turnover of customers may place durability as their most important option, whereas a high-end bar will probably consider style to be their most important factor.

What height of bar stool will I need?

The size of bar stool you require depends on the height of your counter, bar, or table so you’ll need to have this measurement before ordering. If your measurement is between 90 to 100 cm you should choose a 66cm height and if your measurement is more than 100cm then go for a 76cm height.
