11 Best Bar Stools With Backs – Perfect Supportive Seating

Looking for some great bar stools with backs for your new kitchen?
Then this is the post for you. I’m sharing my 11 favourite bar stools with backs that look amazing, feel comfy and support your back!

With more people now working from home and spending long periods of time sitting at their laptops, having a bar stool with good back support is a must.

Even if you’re just doing a quick bit of web browsing whilst sat at your kitchen island. Having a comfortable and supportive bar stool can make all the difference.

That’t why this post is focusing on bar stools with backs!

Before you fall in love with a bar stool (and especially before you buy!), however, make sure to measure the space you have available. Check the overall height, seat height and width of the bar stools so you know they will fit comfortably in your kitchen.

Top tip: As a general rule for bar stool seating space, you want to allow 50cm – 60cm per person sat at a breakfast bar.
