Buying Guide

Adding tropical bar stools to your in-home cocktail bar gives your space a faraway, exotic feel. The comfortability of tropical bar stools varies, depending on the design and materials used.

Bar stools with no backing can become uncomfortable after long periods, especially if you need back support to feel secure. However, these stools offer padded seats, which gives your body cushioning on the underside. The seat material plays a part in the level of comfort as well. Leather seats are soft and stylish and come in a variety of colors to enhance your tropical design.

Bar stools with metal backing offer back support, and when combined with leather or upholstered seats, make for an enjoyable place to sit. The most comfortable bar stools use a funky tropical design with padded seats and cushioned backing. These bar stools are soft and cocoon you while you relax and visit with friends.

You should aim to purchase enough tropical barstools so you have one barstool for every two or three feet of bar that you happen to have. So, for example, a 5’ long bar would be big enough for two barstools with a bit of room to spare; you’d want three barstools to match a 7’ long bar.
