If you're considering adding a watering hole to your outdoor living space, you'll first want to browse the many options available for outdoor bar stools and furniture.

If you're in the market for outdoor bar stools and other bar furniture, chances are you've already settled on the design of the bar itself. But if not, you may be able to let the other furniture be your guide. The design options for outdoor bar stools and furniture are diverse enough that you're sure to find something that appeals to your sensibilities and fits with the overall aesthetic of your outdoor space.

Speaking of which, a good place to start when choosing outdoor bar furniture is whether or not you want to match the look of the rest of your outdoor living space, and your home in general. If so, your task is simple—find outdoor bar furniture that matches or resembles the overall design. If not, there are many paths you can travel, from a fun tiki bar to a sleek, modern design that sports metal bar stools and other bar furniture with plenty of curves and contours.

Another factor to consider is how many guests you plan to have at your outdoor bar regularly. This won't simply dictate how many stools you'll need—it could also influence their size and shape, and whether or not they play nicely with the other furniture on your patio or deck.

Once you've determined the style and scope of outdoor bar stools and furniture you'll need for your outdoor living space, it's time to sit back and relax with friends and family at your new backyard hot spot.
