Benefits of Bar Stools with Backs

  • Enhanced Comfort: One of the main advantages of bar stools with backs is the added comfort they provide. The back support can make all the difference, especially if you plan to sit for prolonged periods.
  • Improved Posture: Having a backrest can naturally guide the spine into a more upright and proper alignment. This can help in reducing the chances of slouching, which can eventually lead to back issues.
  • Safety Features: Stools with backs offer an additional level of safety. There’s a decreased risk of falling backwards or sliding off the stool when there’s something to lean against.
  • Versatility in Design: Kitchen stools with backs come in a variety of designs, materials, and styles. This allows you to choose one that not only provides comfort, but also complements the decor and theme of their space.
  • Increased Durability: Often, bar chairs with backs are built sturdily to support the weight leaning against them. This can make them more long-lasting and durable than backless options.
  • Support for All Ages: These stools are suitable for people of all ages, from children to the elderly, as they offer the necessary support and stability that might be needed.
  • Reduced Fatigue: When you have the option to lean back, it reduces the fatigue on your back muscles. This can be particularly beneficial if you’re at a bar or kitchen counter for extended periods, such as during a family gathering or a party.
  • Lends a Formal Touch: While backless stools have a casual feel, kitchen island stools with backs can lend a more formal and structured look to a space, making it appear more put-together.
  • Additional Padding: Many bar stools with backs come with additional padding or cushioning, making them even more comfortable to sit on for extended periods.
  • Better for Health: Continual strain on the back, especially the lower lumbar region, can lead to health issues over time. Kitchen stools with backs can offer preventive measures against such problems.

Swivel Bar Stools with Backs

The most popular type of bar stool feature is a swivel bar stool with back because it allows you to sit back and rotate in any direction which is great for entertaining. Most of our bar stools come in your choice of 360-degree swivel or memory-return swivel. 

Some of our most popular swivel bar stools with backs are the Ronny, Catalina, Fame, and the Nicholas.

Adjustable Stool with Back

One of the standout benefits of an adjustable stool with a back is the ability to modify its seat height according to specific requirements, be it for a kitchen counter, a bar, or a drafting table.

This flexibility ensures ergonomic support, promoting better posture and reducing the risk of back and neck strain, especially during prolonged seating.

Back Height

When you’re shopping for counter stools with backs, you’ll notice all different back heights. Some will say low back, mid back, and high back.

Low Back Bar Stools

Most of our bar stools with low backs are in line with the height of the counter or lower. 

A low back allows you to see through your counter, as there is no high back blocking the view. This helps keep the space looking tidy. 

Popular low back bar stools include the Ace, Barry, Ronny, Catalina, and Baltimore.

Mid Back Bar Stools

A bar stool with a mid back height typically extends above the counter by approximately 2 or 3 inches. 

This still can allow you to see through to the counter, and provides you with more height for your back.

Popular mid back bar stools include the Wish, Payton, and Linea.

High Back Bar Stools

A bar stool with a high back typically extends above the counter over approximately 4 inches.

These stools are typically going to be more comfortable than any other back height because it provides you a lot more space to rest your back. 

Popular high back bar stools include the Cardin, Marcus, Grissom, and 915.

These stools come in espresso, gold, bronze, nickel, brass, white, black, silver, and more. Some of our most popular metal bar stools with backs include the Ronny, Catalina, and Wish.
