Heavy Duty Bar Stools

We can all agree that all barstools are not made the same. Light duty bar stools will fold under bodyweight or fly away in high winds.

When you are searching for a heavy-duty bar stool, there are two numbers to keep in mind. Firstly, the weight capacity of the bar stool should be able to hold 250 pounds or more. Though for extra heavy-duty bar stools, you will want ones that hold 300 to 400 pounds.

The second number to remember is the weight of the barstool itself. Try to aim for a barstool that weighs closer to 30 pounds. This way, they won’t be too easy to tip over.

Whether you need sturdy barstools for commercial purposes or personal preferences, here are ten heavy-duty bar stool ideas to help you out.

Our advice Buying Guide

For entertaining and personal home use, heavy duty bar stools are a common item in our homes. They’re usually paired with the bar in the basement or the counter in your kitchen. Regardless, you’re going to want bar stools that are stylish, durable, and fits your home well.

Getting to know some of the basics when it comes to bar stools can be useful when it comes to determining what set you want for your home. There are various styles and designs to choose from, and not to mention, different heights to take into consideration. Since you’re looking for heavy duty bar stools, you can be sure that they’ll be able to handle things like more weight, rough usage, spills, and stains. Make sure you stay around to check out some useful tips to consider when buying a set of heavy duty bar stools.

Who’s going to use the stools?

One of the most important things to consider is what you decide on using the bar stools for. This will affect what kind of design you’re going for. If you want to pair the stools with the bar in your home, then you have a lot of options. If small children are going to be using these stools regularly, then you’ll want to avoid bar stools that come with flexible turning and don’t have wheels for feet.

Choosing some bar stools to use for the man cave should be approached differently. Think dark colors and finishes that are masculine. Bar stools with bigger seating should also be considered.

How to determine the right size for heavy duty bar stools?

Choosing the right bar stool for your bar or counter at home means making sure the height is appropriate. A basic way to determine the proper height for your bar stool is by measuring the height of your bar or counter, then subtracting 10 inches from that measurement.

The size of your bar stool seats is also a consideration. Wider seats will offer more comfort while smaller seats can allow you to squeeze in an extra one or two bar stools. It all depends on how many stools you need, how large your bar or counter is, and what you’re willing to compromise.

Make sure to allow enough room for proper spacing between stools. A common “rule” is to allow a little under 30 inches from point A (the middle of one bar stool) to point B (the middle of the bar stool next to it).

What are the different designs of heavy duty bar stools?

Not only are you going to want a stool that fits your set up physically, but visually as well. Keep in mind the following style factors:

  • Back or no back. Bar stools with back support offer more comfort while backless stools have a timeless, sleek look. If you plan on using your bar stools often for eating meals and hanging out, then you should probably go for back support.
  • Footrests. This may not be much of a problem since many bar stools offer a structural bracket that most can rest their feet on. Depending on the model you choose, you may want to get a footrest for comfort.
  • Round or square shaped seats. This is a personal preference but may be important depending on the current decor and theme of your home.
  • Materials. Since heavy duty bar stools are already made to be durable, the material you’ll need to think about is for the seat itself. Hard material seats are easier to clean and don’t damage easily. If you want to get a seat that’s soft, padded, and covered in fabric or leather, remember that more care and maintenance will be required to keep your bar stool(s) in good shape.

Choosing your heavy duty bar stools doesn’t have to feel like such a chore. There are so many great options that can work well in your home. Make sure to browse the selection below to see what bar stools are available online.
