Leather: Most "Leather" that you will find in your bar stool search is actually fabric-backed vinyl. Due to the extra time and cost required for real leather seating the price of the bar stool will generally be $50 to $150 MORE than a comparable vinyl but will last much longer and feel much better due to its ability to "Breathe". Vinyl is prone to tearing cracking and warping more so than fabric or leather. Synthetic suede fabrics are a much better option if this is a concern. Sun dry air excessive heat and cold as well as exposure to certain chemicals or cleaners can also destroy vinyl,
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,
Upholstery - There are a number of upholstery options and styles available for bar stools with the main choices being wood plastic/acrylic fabric leather and vinyl. When trying to figure out which upholstery will work best for your home the best place to start looking is your kitchen or bar area to determine which will go best. If your kitchen or bar area already has a pre-existing modern vibe opt for something a little more edgy such as modern plastic/acrylic stools that are often available in a variety of fun modern colors to choose from. If you take pride in your kitchen`s wood workmanship you can easily accentuate this with wood bar stools that come in a number of different finishes to match your cabinets or counters. We all love kids but know that they are prone to spills and stains on our furniture. If you have kids in your house stick with a material that can be easily cleaned such as vinyl. If you are opting more for comfort and will be using your stools for extended seating fabric upholstery is always a safe bet for a comfortable sitting experience,
Features - Generally speaking when you are looking to purchase a bar stool the features and how adjustable the stool will be is usually is not the first concern that comes to mind. Although a bar stool does not need to come with the same high level of adjustability you would look for in a regular office chair there are some features that may be desired for your home. The first feature that any bar stool should have is a footrest; your feet will need a spot to rest with the floor being inaccessible at that height. A footrest will allow you to sit more comfortably on the stool and keep your body in a natural position,
You can buy a bar stool for as little as $9. Typically bar stools less than $100 are "RTA" or "Ready to Assemble". This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts legs must be attached seats must be attached arms back seat frame etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt`s threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color one fabric no options,
