As we all know, buying products online can be a great way to find a huge variety of styles and prices. With the ease of online shopping these days, it is always a good idea to have a glance around even if you do not want to purchase anything online. It will give you a rough idea of the prices you should expect and the range of products out there.

A great example of this is swivel bar stools. By having a quick glance around you will find the huge variety out there. There are two common heights used these days, they are 24 and 26 inches. Most bar heights are 29 to 31 inches, thus why the bar stools are that height. To determine what height you will have your swivel bar stools think about the height of the counter they will be used at and the kind of people that will be sitting on them.

After a decision on height has been made, you must next decide if you want your swivel bar stools to have arm rests or not. This decision must also be based on the height of your counter or bar. If the arm rests do not fit under the counter then you will not be able to push them underneath when they are not being used.

There are many different materials that bar stools are made out of. Some of them include leather, oak, wood, and metal. Metal swivel bar stools are a popular choice as they are sturdy, lightweight and relatively cheap. For more eccentric kinds have a look into oak swivel bar stools. For that more relaxed atmosphere then leather swivel bar stools are the way to go. But overall, choice should come down to what you think looks best and what your budget is.

Now, after you have decided on the appearance of your swivel bar stools, you must decide whether or not you want to buy them online. This can be a tough decision and all depends on the person buying the product. Some people are perfectly comfortable doing this and some are not. A great thing to do is head down to your local furniture store and see if there are any swivel bar stools there that you like. If so, before you buy, be sure to have a quick look online and see what is available. A lot of the time, shops will have an online component and this can be a great way to save a lot of money.

If you are dead set in buying online then there are a few factors you should look at before buying of any specific companies. What are their postage rates? Some online stores have really cheap prices but ridiculous postage prices hidden amongst them so you might not even pick up on this. Also, read their return policy very carefully. Some online stores do not allow any returns at all but this is rare. Keep in mind that most of the time you will be covering the return postage costs which can be quite significant if you have a lot of swivel bar stools to send back!

Finally, have a look over any customer feedback that is available, or do a quick search online and see if there is any negative news surrounding the company. As always, the honest reviews are always by customers so this can help you build up an idea of what the store is like.
