Retro is in these days and what better way to accent your retro style kitchen than with stools that borrow design elements from the good old days. You can buy brand new stools that are chrome and vinyl in a myriad of styles. Unlike actual vintage stools you won`t have to worry about rusting metal or ripped upholstery with new stools. You can get great stools with or without backs in a retro 50`s look, a vinyl retro lounge look with a full back and arms, and even backless counter stools just like you would see in the soda shop.
Most stools are designed to go under or near a bar. The height of the bar will determine the height of the bar stool. You ideally need enough room for a person to sit comfortably, legs crossed on the stool while under or near your breakfast bar.
on`t want the natural wooden look, a metal bar stool is for you. They come in sleek and elegant colors as well as shiny chrome. These stools will give the room a modern look. One exception is the wrought iron stool. These are made of iron that is bent into beautiful curves to form the stool. Unlike stainless steel models, these wrought iron models will give your kitchen or bar an old-fashioned look.
One of the most popular designs of plastic stools are those stools that look a bit like a soft boiled egg cup or ice cream cone. People who have purchased them claim they are extremely comfortable as well. Plastic stools are often the ideal choice for people with small children as the traces of sticky hands and spills clean up extremely easy making taking care of these stools simple and efficient.
Many plastic bar stools have a metal base to help make them more durable and long lasting and when purchasing this type of stool look for ones where the seat plastic extends down the metal base as they seem to last longer than the ones with just a seat mounted on the base.
Home bar stools come in different styles. Retro chrome and vinyl padded stools are becoming popular these days. But if you want to give your bar a more different or exotic look, then you can opt for bar stools made of bamboo or rattan.
Some stools have arms rests. These rests often are quite high and can catch on or damage the bar especially on swivel stools. If you want arm rests or swivel features ensure that the height of the stools is less than the height of the breakfast bar.
Look at the length of the breakfast bar and from that work out how many stool will fit comfortably along it. Bear in mind that people will swivel on the stools and knees will knock if they are too close together. Most of our stools are quite wide and they all include a swivel feature.
