You don't need a bar to have rustic bar stools. You can also use them at counters and tables. The main concern you will have when purchasing a rustic bar stool is height. You'll want to have a durable, non-wobbling stool that offers about 10 to 12 inches of clearance, so legs can fit beneath the countertop. Additionally, look for rustic bar stools that are cushioned and have a back support and foot rests for greater comfort. The materials used in construction may vary from wood to cast iron, but the finish should be easily cleanable. A bar stool that swivels and is height-adjustable is good for social situations. Easy-assembly is a must for those not wishing to succumb to frustration.
