How to Sell a Bar Stool

Do you have some bar stools to sell? Here’s what you should think about when you’re putting an ad together.

Buyers will be most interested in the height of your bar stool. They will be looking to get a stool to match the height of the bar, whether this is a kitchen or breakfast bar, a floating island or an actual bar. If your kitchen stools were used at a breakfast bar, mention the bench height to give buyers a good idea about whether they would work in their house.

In addition to the stool height and seat height, it’s also important for buyers to know the width of the base of the stool. This will give them an insight into how stable the stool is- which is an important consideration for buyers with children. If your stools have a retro-style gas lift, be sure to detail whether this is in good working order.

Clear pictures will go a long way when selling a bar stool. Think about where the stool was used in your house. If possible, take some pictures that can be used with your advertisement showing the bar stools in action. Picture the stools with your other furniture- a shot next to a chair can help with perspective. If you’re also selling your kitchen chairs be sure to let the buyers know!

Don’t be afraid to advertise stools with slightly shabby upholstery. Often buyers are planning to re-upholster to match their existing colour scheme or style. And finally, if you’re selling your stools as a lot, consider whether you would be willing to sell them individually. This will increase the amount of administration for you, so decide carefully! You may risk losing future buyers who are interested in buying a set.
