Shop Quality with the Local Experts

Barstools are as unique as the homes they end up in. Since 1983, Barstools& Dinettes has carried a wide selection of seating styles and sizes for our Raleighcustomers. These seating options are more than just a great spot to grab a quick breakfast, snack or informal meal. Stools can pull together the style of a whole room and are often the accent piece for which you’ve been looking. Backless varieties are great for tight spaces and often preferred by those leaning toward a sleek, modern or contemporary style. Swivel models are always popular with the kids and make getting on and off the seat a breeze for diners of all ages. Look for models that automatically return to center for an always-clean appearance. For seating areas where people will spend a good deal of time, or comfort is imperative, consider choosing a style with arms.

Choosing the Right Height & Material

Selecting the correct stool height is the key to comfort when shopping for seating. Start by measuring from the floor to the top of the surface and then determine which range of seats will work for you. Counter-height stools are great for standard 36-inch counters and have seats between 24 and 26 inches off the ground. Bar-height models are designed to work at taller eating heights the measure around 42 inches. The seats on this variety will be between 29 and 31 inches high. Custom-height models are designed for surfaces with odd measurements and are available up to 36 inches tall. Look toward wood or easily-cleaned upholstery types for a traditional look, or choose metal for a modern style.
