Key Factors To Consider When Purchasing Bar Stools

Your eatery interacts with a unique customer base in a very personalized way. It's critical that your furnishings cater to these needs so you can efficiently and effectively satisfy your guests. As you commence your search for the best commercial bar stools for your restaurant, there are a few things you must keep in mind to ensure your selection serves your business well in the long term.

Special Features

Purchasing chairs with certain special features may increase your customers' comfort level. Backrests, in particular, add to the comfort of your customers’ experience.. Similarly, footrests are often appreciated at bar-height tables and at tables where kids may sit. You may even want to consider investing in commercial swivel bar stools as swivel capabilities allow guests to easily converse with their entire party.  Other considerations include stacking features, outdoor materials, and upholstery


Every commercial bar stool has a different space requirement, also known as a footprint. It's important to weigh the pros and cons of each stool's footprint so you can keep your patrons comfortable, while seating as many people as possible. The chairs with the smallest footprints save a lot of space but often lack special features. Those with swivel capabilities and other comforts, on the other hand, may take up more room. Additionally, the most durable options, such as heavy-duty outdoor bar stools, may not be quite as space-efficient.


Don't compromise the appearance of your seating for the sake of functionality; you can have both. Make sure your chairs suit your overall color scheme and style. Some heavy-duty commercial bar stools are available with matching chairs.  You will want to have a consistent look or at least furniture that goes together well.
Remember that fancier isn't always better. High-end commercial bar stools work well in an elegant downtown restaurant but not so well in a family-friendly neighborhood grill. If kids frequent your eatery, it's more important that your chairs are easy to clean than beautifully upholstered. Commercial wood bar stools or industrial outdoor bar stools might be better options.


Choosing a trustworthy supplier is essential to avoid any issues with your purchase. Utilize our high-quality, professional furniture-sourcing service to expedite your furniture search. We know all of the manufacturers in the industry and only work with those that offer the highest quality at a reasonable price.

Additional Tips and Tricks

Offer a Variety of Seating Options

Although there is something to be said for uniformity, it is often advantageous to mix and match different types of seating. This way, customers can choose a table option that meets their needs. Consider incorporating booths, dining-height tables, and bar-height tables into your floor plan.

Offering outdoor seating may also be a smart move for your establishment. With patio seating options ranging from heavy-duty outdoor swivel bar stools to outdoor adjustable bar stools, you can make sure your patrons are just as comfortable outside as they are inside. Our commercial outdoor bar stools also come in a variety of colors and styles.

Map Out Your Floor Plan

A smart way to optimize the space in your eatery is to create a diagram detailing the location of each table. Make sure to keep this drawing to scale, noting the space each individual seat and table requires. Though it is always tempting to squeeze one more table into your dining area, you will want to follow ADA requirements. Additional factors to bear in mind include how much space servers will need to carry dishes and whether there are fire codes to maintain.

If you want to strictly preserve your seating arrangement, you could consider installing commercial bolt-down bar stools. Conversely, you may need portable options for your patio if you plan on having flexibility or bringing your commercial outdoor bar stools inside to avoid theft.
