When you would like to establish that wild west cowboy feel in your home, but you have modern style kitchen furniture and fixtures, then you should consider modern style saddle counter stools. They will still be made of wood.

If you have the right patio bar stools, you can heighten the aesthetics of your outdoor bar. It would certainly be awkward if you have regular chairs or stools in your bar. Having matching patio stools would give your bar a more elegant look.

In the old days bar stools were strictly utilitarian, just wooden pieces nailed together to form sturdy seats. There was not much call for aesthetic modifications, and life back then was generally plain-looking by today's standards. If you have seen movies depicting the medieval or Middle Ages, then you will be familiar with the rough-hewn appearance of their furniture. They were often unpadded as well, so sitting for long periods of time was not an attractive prospect. The Renaissance saw a sudden uprising in the call for beauty, and everything became covered with carvings and etchings. These bar stools were no exception, and their long legs in particular were made more aesthetically ornate. Padding as part of the seat and not as a separate cushion was also introduced. Not surprisingly, not everyone could afford these fancy seats, so the simple designs were still common in the seedier bars and public houses. This disparity is important to consider, since it has led to the richness of choice that we have today. In the previous century, every decade saw changes in popular fashion and aesthetics, so public houses changed their appearance regularly. Those periods saw the use of chrome, leatherette, rotating seats, and polyurethane foam. These stools became fixtures around counters, literally speaking. Being bolted to the floor, their fixed nature prevented them from being used in the inevitable bar brawl. Alcohol seems to often lead to violence of some sort, and many a bar has seen destruction at the hands of inebriated patrons. At least, the stools would be spared too much damage.

The drawback with stainless steel stool for a bar is that it is quite heavy. An alternative metal to construct quality stool is aluminum. Known for being ultra-light and non-corrosive, aluminum is also respected for its strength.

Price is always a consideration when purchasing anything and buying a bar stool is no different. While you want to buy the highest quality stool you can afford you don't want to over spend and regret your purchase later on. Set a budget that you can afford and then only look for stools within your price range. That way you can get what you want without going broke in the bargain.

The last feature that you may want your bar stools to have is a back rest. Back support is ideal for homes with children to ensure they have proper support and do not accidentally fall off when seated. A stool with a back rest may also feel more comfortable and natural for most as the majority of people are already accustomed to sitting in chairs with back support. Contrarily, backless bar stools are more traditional in appearance and the staple for typical bar seating that you might find at a restaurant or a pub. They also encourage correct posture by forcing you to sit up right while aligning your spine. The option for a back ultimately comes down to comfort and what you are most familiar with.

If you have a larger bar, or a bar with a built-in barbecue and dining area, then a bar stool with a back may be preferable. The backs provide support, which makes them easier to sit on while eating, and are more comfortable while sitting for longer periods.

Others have their "saddle" made of straight, flat wood, which might be a type of seat you are more used to.

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.

Some western style counter stools have a round "saddle" instead of rectangular. They are still termed western counter stools for their other qualities, such as wood as the material for both their legs and the seat. They will typically have four legs, and the neighboring legs will be connected with cross bars at different heights on neighboring sides, and same heights on opposite sides, for stability and sturdiness of construction.
