Determine the desired height – First of all, you need to determine the height of the bar chair or stool you wish to introduce to the space.

The options you may choose from includes chairs with high back, low back, without or with arms, 360 rotating capacity or those with partial swivel. In addition, also ensure that the stool you choose also matches well with the furniture, upholstery and look of the room.
