When deciding which bar stools to buy remember to take accurate measurements of the space available to ensure a comfortable fit. 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.
Here a swivel feature of the bar stool seat is understood where the entire seat possibly with the back rest and the armrests is rotated. 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.
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining game rooms commercial bars etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.

Adjustable height stool - from bar height to counter height: Typical adjustable height counter stool will readily adjust between the counter height of about 24 - 25 inches to 29 - 32 inches or so bar height. This will allow a stool like that to be used at the bar top as well as at the counter top which will add to its choices. While the bar stools and the counter stools are available in both metal or chrome or wood finish an adjustable height stool is usually only available in the chrome finish or a stainless steel finish as these are the only ways the single foot of a stool can be made height adjustable. That single foot contains a pneumatic mechanism that uses compressed air to `lift the seat surface upward and uses the person`s own weight to lower the stool surface downward.
