How to Mount Bar Stools

By Alexis Rohlin ; Updated September 21, 2017
Floor mounted bar stools are anchored into concrete floors.

Floor mounted bar stools can be custom-made to match just about any restaurant and bar decor. Bar stools can come with foot rests and their seats can have logos on them. Some bar stools are built with swivel seats that spin for ease of use. Floor mounted bar stools tend to be installed at a diner or cafe front counter. They always face forward and they do not spin once they are installed. Floor mounted bar stools are anchored in concrete floors.

Mark on your cement floor where the bar stools are going to be mounted and where all of the bolts have to be anchored.

Drill a hole at each of these marks with the star drill bit for concrete. The holes should be 4 inches deep. Clean out the holes by vacuuming up the drilling debris. Pour water into the holes and scrub the sides with a stiff bristle brush. Use paper towels to soak up the excess water but leave the holes damp.

Mix the quick-drying anchor cement according to the packaging instructions. Once the cement is of pourable consistency, place a bolt with a washer resting against the head in the hole, head down. Pour the cement into the hole and around the bolt. Let it sit and set for 45 minutes.

Place bar stool over bolts and secure into place by tightening the bolt to the base of the bar stool with a counter stool wrench. Slide the bell cover down to hide the bolts.
