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.

Over 2,500 barstools

Sears is one of the longest-lasting names in the home furnishings market. Although they no longer have a retail location in practically every mall in America, this retailer offers plenty of barstools in their online store. Ranging in price from under $50 to the mid-$1500s, you'll find brands like Furniture of America, Holland Bar Stool, Bowery Hill, and many others.

To make it easier to find the kind of counter or barstool you need, we suggest using the filtering options on the left side of the page. You may already have an idea of the perfect style for your home - maybe it's important to have a swivel seat, or a specific height, and so on. Click on the dropdowns to only see the kinds of chairs that are right for you; these include Material, Seat Style, Finish, User Ratings, and Current Offers.

As you find chairs that catch your interest, you can easily click on "Add to compare" to keep a running list of your favorite options. Sears also makes it easy to see the average of any available customer reviews, any promotions currently in place.

Sears doesn't give you a lot of detail on the barstools they carry. Some of the furniture we considered only had one small image for us to consider, making it hard to see it from multiple angles. You can click to get more specifics like the finish, materials, and seat height/depth, as you scroll through individual products' available info.

You might get a pop-up discount offer when you visit the Sears site. For example, we got a savings of $5 on $50 or more or $35 on $300 or more if we entered our email.

Sears offers free shipping on all orders of $59 and above. That covers most of the barstools in their online inventory, so your purchase will probably come with no-cost delivery.

One thing that might give you some pause when shopping at Sears: the company filed for bankruptcy in late 2018. While the business continues to operate "with court supervision", that could leave customers in the lurch if the store shuts down completely. In other words, it's hard to make a return if the doors have been closed.

Speaking of returns, Sears' policy isn't the most impressive: you'll only have 30 days from the day your barstools were delivered to send them back or take them to a retail location near you.. If you're part of the Sears Shop Your Way rewards program, you'll get an extension to a total of 45 days for your return.

Another factor to consider when shopping at Sears is that they use a Marketplace structure for some of the furniture they carry. That means that not everything you buy on the Sears website is going to be fulfilled by Sears itself - though they back all of their marketplace sales by guaranteeing they'll either help you resolve any problems or refund the cost of your order.

Of course, you can easily use the three tabs at the top of the Bar Stools page to show only results offered by Sears, just those that can be ordered online and picked up in-store, or full results including Marketplace sellers. It really just depends on your own preferences; there's nothing inherently bad about using third-party partners that Sears has vetted and approved as a seller on their online store.

Overall, Sears has a nice selection of barstools and a long history as a nationwide retailer. But, because of the company's financial status, which could leave customers hanging at any time, we can't give Sears our highest recommendation at this time.

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?
