WAYFAIR

Cost:

From $28 to $10,000

Selection:

Over 13,000 barstools

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award You'll often find Wayfair at the top of our reviews across a wide spectrum of home products. That shouldn't be surprising, for a retailer that sells "a zillion things home" and genuinely carries almost everything imaginable for every type of decor, preference, and style. That's certainly true for barstools: Wayfair's inventory is nearly double our next-highest store's selection!

You might imagine that a store with more than 13,000 options for bar stools would be extremely hard to shop, but Wayfair actually has one of the most streamlined, intuitive websites of any retailer we've ever evaluated. Not only will you find dropdowns for sorting your options, but many of them give you a visual so that you know what you're selecting. Not sure what the difference is between a full back or a half back style? You'll see a clear image before you click the box. Are you looking for something ergonomic, or want to prioritize furniture that's made in the USA? You'll find those filter options too.

Because Wayfair is so popular, you can take advantage of thousands of customer reviews. One of the most highly-rated barstools we spotted was the Russett Bar & Counter Stool from Three Posts. With a 4.5-star average over more than 3700 reviews, this simple-yet-sturdy chair comes in more than 12 colors and 2 counter heights. Wayfair gives you multiple product images, so you can see each chair from several angles and in different settings, making it so much easier to see if it might be a good fit for your home too.

Scroll down through the product page and you'll find a wealth of information. On the chair we mentioned earlier, we were able to learn more about the acacia wood used in its construction, the mortise and tenon joints used to join its pieces, and a couple dozen question-and-answers from customers. For a less-than-$70 chair, we were impressed with how much effort Wayfair put into keeping their customers informed.

One thing we always enjoy doing when we shop at Wayfair is to see the most expensive items they carry among the products we're buying - and even in barstools, Wayfair doesn't disappoint. The Rivoli Bar & Counter Stool is a "bargain" at $10,124.99 - for a set of 2. It even comes in 2 sizes and 4 colors! You might be surprised to find out that the barstool has more than 800 customer reviews - and we enjoyed seeing actual photos showing how the chairs looked in real use. If you're looking for a high-end barstool, you may really like this model.

On either end of the budget spectrum, you'll have a hard time finding another retailer with prices that can beat Wayfair's, including their free shipping on all orders over $49. But, their return policy isn't as competitive, with 30 days to send it back in unused/unassembled condition, and with no retail locations for this store you'll have to spend the cash to ship back your purchase.

And yet, we have found hundreds of customer testimonials describing how Wayfair shipped replacement items for damaged or defective items - without even requiring the return to be received first. Wayfair has a strong commitment to making customers happy, which we appreciate.

Wayfair is absolutely the name to beat when it comes to barstools. You'll find great pricing across thousands of options, an easily-navigated website that makes it almost effortless to find the right furniture for your home, and more than enough information pre-purchase to ensure that your barstools have the sizing, look and feel you've been envisioning. Wayfair earns our highest recommendation.

Cost:

From $42 to $1,050

Selection:

Over 1,000 barstools

One Way Furniture lets you buy directly from the manufacturer, offering savings of up to 70% over traditional retailers' prices. The company has more than 300 warehouses nationwide, enabling them to deliver quickly no matter where you live. And, most of the barstools offered on the site come with free shipping and no sales tax, giving you extra savings. Since our last evaluation of this company, they seem to have eliminated the $8.99 processing fee tacked onto every order, making the free shipping and no sales tax a legitimate perk that is no longer eliminated by having extra charges.

Unfortunately, once you've searched for "Bar Stools", you'll get a lengthy list of matching products - more than 1300 during our most recent visit to the site - and not many useful ways to narrow down your options. You can sort all of them by price, most popular, name and newest products, but there's no way to filter out the ones that clearly don't match what you need (e.g. only backless stools). That means you'll either need to get very specific with your search terms - walnut backless saddle stool, for instance - and hope that you get lucky with the results, or you'll be spending a lot of time scrolling through the options until you (maybe) spot one that's the right height, style, and so forth. That's definitely not as convenient and easy to use as our higher-rated retailers.

This store also doesn't compete when it comes to their return policy. You only have 15 days from delivery to make a return request, and that doesn't apply if you've already assembled your barstools. You'll have to pay for the return shipping costs, and they'll deduct any free shipping from the amount of your return. On top of that, One Way Furniture takes a restocking fee of 15%. If you buy a lower-priced barstool, it's probably cheaper to just keep it than to try and return it!

On a more positive note, One Way Furniture has a solid reputation with the Better Business Bureau, as demonstrated by the BBB's "A+" rating of the company. You can also see a decent amount of information on each barstool you click on, from finish and seat height to a description of the style of the furniture itself. However, as you look at your results, you can't see at a glance what the height of the chair is, leaving you to click on every single piece of furniture you might like, just to determine if it could fit under your counter.

While we appreciate that One Way Furniture has that positive reputation, the frustrating experience of trying to use their online storefront to find the barstools we needed was enough to keep this retailer as one of the lower-ranked companies in our review. You're likely to save time and money by shopping with another store, and you'll probably get a better return policy too.

Fortunately, there's an easy solution to the problem: buying barstools online. There's no easier way to compare all of the possibilities, leading you to the furniture that's exactly the right color, height and price with just a few clicks. Many of the retailers offering barstools have helpful tools on their site that can guide you through the process of taking measurements to ensure the best fit.

Best of all, these online stores usually offer customer-friendly perks like free delivery, generous return policies, and rewards programs that can save you money over their already-competitive prices. Why spend every weekend hoping to find your barstools locally - and then wondering how you'll fit them in your car for the drive home - when you can get exactly what you want shipped right to your front door?

With so many online stores offering barstools, how can you tell which one should get your business? Not all retailers are created equal, so use these criteria as a starting point for your shopping experience:

  • Selection. How many styles does the store carry? Does the retailer have a wide enough range for you to choose from in the height/material/price point you're considering?
  • Price. How competitive are the prices on barstools? Does the store offer a price match guarantee or any other extra savings?
  • Return Policy. If your barstools arrive and they're not a good fit, either in style or height, can you return them? What requirements do you have to follow to be eligible for a refund?
  • Reputation. What do other shoppers say about their experience with the retailer? Is the company rated by the BBB?
