Cecil. Bar Stools. May 15th , 2018.
The Right Bar Stool. Bar stools are becoming increasingly popular particularly because of their design and the fashion statement they hold. Their purpose as their name suggests is to be used in bars or pubs. With all that its aim was a clear one the chairs are more often encountered in houses and apartments located in kitchens or near a bar. It seems that in a study conducted on a sample of 1500 men and 1500 women men prefer to sit on bar stools because it gives the feeling of superiority because of the height of the seat,
As for a dollar amount the average higher-quality bar stool should be in the $199 to $349 range regardless of where you shop. Stools with special features such as tilt-swivel mechanisms real leather seating casters or custom heights may cost as much as $400 to $600 each. Some designer hand carved wood stools with multi-step finishes can cost $1000 to $3000 each. If your budget allows you try to upgrade from the RTA bar stools to welded construction. They will last longer be safer for you and your family AND should allow you the ability to customize the height fabric and finish you want,
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,
Fabrics: Both wood and metal bar stools may have countless fabrics to choose from. Look for high quality fabrics that complement your home`s decor as well as a fabric that works well with the finish you have selected AND the style of the bar stool. An "Antique Tapestry" is a beautiful fabric but NOT on a silver modernized frame! Synthetic suede fabrics are very durable and easy to clean. They simulate the look and feel of suede but are far more easy to care for than cotton or other natural coverings. Some manufacturers offer the ability to use your own fabric. These are commonly referred to as "COM" or "Customer`s Own Material." If you choose to use your own fabric make sure it is an upholstery grade fabric and check with your salesperson to see how much material will be needed for each stool. Stools with backs generally require 2 yards per stool whereas backless or metal back stools generally require 1 yard per stool. If your fabric has a repeating pattern that you want to match it may be necessary to provide more fabric so the factory can match the placement of a design from one stool to the other,
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,
