Here at DecorHint, we are huge fans of getting the look for less. We really don’t think we need to shell out thousands of dollars in order to have a beautiful home. My latest home find for you; cheap bar stools.
Cheap Bar Stools – The Roundup
These counter stools are all mostly under $100, in fact we own one of the cheapest barstools on this list. So I can tell you from experience that you definitely don’t NEED to spend a lot here to have a nice looking bar stool.
One thing to note before you shop; do you need a bar stool or a counter stool? There is a difference, but only in the height. A standard countertop or kitchen island is 36 inches high from the floor, so generally a counter stool between 25-28 inches is sufficient.
On the other hand, if you have a bar in your home or even a media/game room – you might want to consider a a taller bar stool which for your needs. Before purchasing, measure the space so you know for sure what size is best!

I just came across this brand and I’m super impressed – really pretty furniture at budget-friendly prices. They have a whole selection of bar height and counter stools, whether you want a cushion, a swivel bar stool, and just dang stylish.
Haobo Home Industrial Metal Bar Stools
One of the most popular picks for industrial/farmhouse stools on Amazon. Why? They are really easy on the wallet, the metal frame and removable back provides support and stability and these also come in 8 different color choices. Stellar reviews.
Vintage Adjustable Bar Stool
If you need a more vintage looking, but adjustable, and a swivel stool – this one from Amazon is all three rolled up into 1, and great reviews to boot.
Alexander Urban Bar Stools
Now let’s take a look at these modern faux leather beauties from Amazon. This is SET OF 4, so each chair will run you well under $100. Reviews state that although assembly is a bit of a pain – these bar stools are comfortable (that built-in footrest is key), stylish and well worth the price paid.
Target Bowden Faux Leather Stool
If you are looking for a similar chair, look no further than this Set of 3 bar faux leather bar stools from Project 62 at Target.
Walmart Howard Stools
For all the industrial style lovers out there, this set of 4 modern metal frame bar stools are for you. Bonus – these come pre-assembled and are stackable with a space saving design. These stools are powder coated, scratch resitant and come in 4 different colors. Sturdy, durable and cheap!
Target Harwich Windsor Bar Stool
I also stumbled upon these bar stool beauties at Target and fell in love! These are by Threshold and look so expensive! Plus the reviews are great and the price is even better! At the time of writing this post, these were heavily marked down on sale.
Winsome Satori Stool
Next up, we have our kitchen stools! If you like simplistic shaker style design, you will love these basic saddle seat wood stools. We have had them for over two years, with my kids jumping on and off them on the daily. In fact, I’m writing this article from one of the stools are we speak!
These stools were very easy to assemble and while they are not as comfortable as one of the faux leather options listed above – they are comfy enough and easy to keep clean. We have the Walnut Color but they also come in Natural and Black.
The only cons would be that after two years of heavy, daily use, the footrest bars are a bit loose (but not broken) and some of the wood buttons that hide the screws popped off (but you still can’t see the screws really). For under $50 a stool – you can’t go wrong! These tend to sell out quickly and if they do – they also sell them on Walmart here and on Home Depot here.
Boraam Sonoma Stool
While you are on Amazon – here’s a similar stool worth checking out with great reviews.
Target Halifax Farmhouse Stools
If you love this look – I found a really beautiful lookalike version on Target. These ones from Threshold feature curved saddle seats for extra comfort and come in three different colors.
Rivet Counter Height Stool
I also spotted these saddle seat bar stools on Amazon and they are beautiful! If you love that Scandi style – these birch stools in the natural or black color will fit the bill. Plus – they are pretty affordable and look a lot more expensive than what they are. Amazing reviews too!
Walmart Mainstays Stools
If you are in the market for a modern, lightweight wood stool, you might like these round rubberwood stools from Walmart. You won’t believe the price on these! Featuring a powder coated base with a round rubberwood seat in natural. I could see these in a kids playroom or even in a beach house. I love the minimal look!
Project 62 Woven Counter Height BarStools
Starting with these beautiful woven faux leather metal chairs from Project 62 at Target. These have a back, so right there you have a bit more comfort! The metal legs keep these chairs sleek looking and durable, and the faux leather seat will be easy to keep clean while adding a stylish look to your room. These also come in three different colors.
Introducing my absolute favorite of this bunch – these shaker style curved back bar stools from Studio McGee at Target. Featuring colors in black, natural or walnut – these chairs look so much more expensive than what they are and have over 100 four-star reviews.
And last but certainly not least, these upholstered bar stools by Project 62. These stools feature metal legs that look like wood – so you get the durability and still get that wood look you want. These also come in over 10 different upholstery fabric colors for a perfect match to your existing decor. The foam seating is padded and comfy, you can definitely sit here a while.
