This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers, you'll get 10 responses. In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
But are their stools costly? Well, the usual rule is that style and elegance comes with a price. Designer clothes are more expensive than normal brands. Luxury cars cost more than normal autos. High-tech computers have higher price-tags compared to mundane PCs. That may be true with many products. But not with Hillsdale bar stools. Enhancing your home bar would not empty your coffers if you get affordable Hillsdale stools.
If you have a general idea of the look and type of bar stools you are looking to purchase, it is best to search for an online furniture retailer where the pricing is much more competitive and therefor will often be priced much lower than physical retail stores. If you are buying your bar stools in bulk, often times you will be eligible for a volume discount, helping you save even more money than if you were to purchase your stools one at a time. There are also cheaper upholstery options that can help save you money as well, for example look for a vinyl or leather look-alike material if you want a leather bar stool. If you are less particular to the level of comfort your stool will provide and are more concerned with the appearance opt for an ABS plastic stool. ABS plastic, although sounds cheap and flimsy, is resistant to heat, chemicals and impact making it a viable option for bar stool seating.
In choosing or buying bar stools, you might probably would want to consider first is the space. In that manner, you will know how much of those stools you will need. If you are not that sure, ask some opinions from others. In this case, the look of an area with a dumping view of stools will not happen.
