If you choose a swivelling stool you will need to determine exactly how far it is going to swivel. You could go for 180 degrees, or you could opt to have it spin for the full 360. This isn't always an easy decision, though giving the full 360 can sometimes be a bit bothersome. It is not unheard of for a swivel stool to become loose and send someone spinning. Is it likely? No, but that doesn't mean it won't happen. When you are running a bar you need to prepare for the unexpected and take pre-emptive action.
Some stools have arms rests. These rests often are quite high and can catch on or damage the bar especially on swivel stools. If you want arm rests or swivel features ensure that the height of the stools is less than the height of the breakfast bar.
If you are in need of a bar stool as a form of seating in the kitchen or dining room, consider the more comfortable version with a padded seat and a back to it. Many times, these types of bar stools even come with arm rests on the sides of them just like regular chairs. This makes for a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere and they are more comfortable to sit and eat in, and socialize for an extended period of time.
