There are tons of overlooked furniture pieces that make great additions to small spaces. Some of our favorites include storage ottomans (which do triple the work as extra seats), sleeper recliners (which really are as impressive as they sound), and bar stools (which create versatile seating options without taking up much room). While bar stools are natural additions to kitchen islands and regular dining tables, we’ve found them to come in handy in living rooms and bedrooms, too. Anywhere you need an extra seat or side table, a bar stool can do the trick.

We rounded up some of our favorite bar stools from some of our go-to retailers, and we decided to keep everything under $150 just to show that bar stools can be as budget-friendly as they are multifunctional. Check out our top picks in a wide range of materials, colors, and styles — including an outdoor set that would look perfect on your patio.

For a super-affordable option, we like this $50 set made with pre-distressed wooden seat tops that give the bar stools a little flair without being too flashy. They have an average 4.3-star rating and can easily double as side tables or plant stands if you want to repurpose them later.

At nearly 60 percent off, this contour wooden minimalist bar stool is a "buy now" situation. The seat is made of sustainably-harvested mango wood with a walnut finish, and the metal legs have a slight grayish-blue tint that will help liven up your kitchen or dining area.

If you want a sturdy seat that will last, pick up this metal bar stool that's built to be used indoors and outdoors. The finish resists rusting and the seat has a drainage hole in the middle to prevent water from pooling. Take your pick of nine colors and rest easy knowing however many you buy, you can stack them for convenient storage.

Adjustable-height options are not easy to find for less than $150, so this faux-leather backed bar stool is a real gem. It swivels around 360 degrees and has a convenient footrest that makes sitting in it even more comfortable. Using the lever, you can adjust the seat from about 24 inches to 29 inches tall, which your guests will definitely appreciate.

One of the comfiest and most-supportive options available, this padded bar stool has a wear-resistant fabric covering that will withstand daily use and maintain its look over time. The cushioning underneath has a firm density, which makes the chair significantly more comfortable than most bar stools.

Joss & Main

For a classic design with contemporary details, grab this adjustable-height bar stool while it's still on sale. The seat is made from mango wood and can go from 24 inches to 29 inches simply by rotating it around. Its iron frame is incredibly sturdy and will hold up through years of use.

With a built-in footrest bar and button tufted seat cushion, this wooden bar stool is both comfortable and charming. Give your kitchen or dining room a rustic touch (that's not too rustic) and a seat with sufficient padding.

The wooden backing on this industrial modern bar stool is surprisingly supportive, which makes for quite the comfy seat. The stool rotates around 360 degrees and has a distinctly antique look that brings some character to your kitchen, living room, or dining room.

These padded, faux-leather bar stools are some of the most luxurious ones we found (especially at this affordable price point). Their minimalist metal bases are powder coated to improve durability, and the seats come in three color options, each with its own kind of rich, upscale look.

Pottery Barn

Available in two heights — 27 inches and 31 inches — and three color options, this rubberwood bar stool looks fitting with any decor scheme. The three wood finishes look so distinct from one another, you could get this same stool in different colors and use them in multiple rooms of your home to create a style that's consistent yet varied.

The woven wicker seats on these bar stools look just as handsome indoors as they do on a balcony or patio. They're made to withstand the sun and the rain, so you can leave these stools outside all summer and give them a quick wipe down or spray with the hose to remove any dirt.
