Magento already supports this out of the box.
It is called layered navigation. For category lists (where the categories are marked as "Is anchor" => 'Yes') and search results this happens automatically.
In order to have an attribute appear in the layered navigation, you need to mark it accordingly, by editing the attribute in the backend and setting the flag "Used in layered navigation" to "Yes".
but not all attribute types support this.

  • Thank you for your answer. Actually i have seen a lot of your answers at this topic but a little bit difficult to understand. So, If i want to add advanced search on frontend how i can do it, Can you please explain me briefly. Thank you so much in advance.
