Cecil. Bar Stools. May 22nd , 2018.
Metal or Wood? 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,
There are two uses for bar stools in a typical American kitchens and game rooms: First is with 40-42 inches tall bar tops and the corresponding comfortable sitting level of the bar counter stool is about 30-32 inches above ground. Second is with the counter tops which have a typical height of three feet or 36 inches and a good sitting height with those is 24-25 inches. Likewise the small dinette tables for nooks or game rooms are often somewhere between the bar top height and the counter top height. When you want to use your bar stool (or a counter height stool) in all of the above circumstances then an adjustable height stool is a good choice. Not surprisingly most adjustable stools will adjust between 24 and 30 inches in height,
Arms or Armless Back or Backless? Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining game rooms commercial bars etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders. If your horizontal (floor space) is limited you may choose armless. Arms generally add 3 to 6 inches to the overall width of a single bar stool and can add up to 18" in width on just 3 bar stools. (See "How Many Do I Need?)
There are many materials from which stools are built. At first wood was used as the basic material. With time the designers started combinations between wood which was used in 80 percent of the stool bar and 20 percent insertion of metal. In time the elements of chrome have become more attractive and wood was replaced in many cases in 100 percent with metal. Also there are bar stools with or without backrest. The latest model one without a backrest is most often encountered in bars because it is very easy to use. The colours vary and you can find stools in the most unusual greens blues or reds colours that enhance the metal work particularly in the night clubs. The material we sit on is also important so again the options are multiple and you may go for for fabric plastic or more expensive for leather according to your personality the colours and the other furniture and décor in your room,
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,
