Wooden stools shouldn`t be placed in a setting where they are exposed to extreme dry or humid conditions. Wooden bar stools will dispel or attract moisture depending on the environment conditions. As the wood furniture absorbs moisture from the air around it in a humid environment it will swell just as it will contract when exposed to an extremely dry environment. There is a natural cycle for all wood furniture but when taken to extremes it can cause the wood to crack, weaken, or split over time.
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.
There are basically two ways of getting round cushions. There are ready-made cushions available in stores all over and the second option is having custom made round cushions. There are advantages and disadvantages to these two options. The ready-made cushion is usually cheaper but restricts the choice of fabric and can also be difficult to find the best fit for your sits. The custom made bar stool cushions are usually more expensive (especially if sewing is not your strong suit), but they last longer, fit perfectly and can be easily matched with the other draperies in the bar.
Think about where the stool will be used and could it be used in more than one location (such as in the kitchen, in the dining room or even outside on hot summer days. You will nearly always find that the gas lift and swivel features of our stools will be an important part of your stool enjoyment. The swivel function makes conversation easier and means you don`t have to move the stool to look at your complete environment. The gas lift features enables you to use the stool with people of different heights and weights comfortably.
The size of bar sloots is usually measured by comparing with the height of the bar, being measured from the floor to the top of the seat. Kitchen tables usually falls between 70 cm and 76 cm in height. A bar stool with a height of 43-46 cm fits best with this type of table. Bar tables are usually between 102-107 cm in height. A bar stool with a height of 70-76 cm would be necessary for this type of application. A bar counter falls between 90 and 92 cm in height, and bar stools with a height between 61-66 cm usually work best with the size of this kind of bar counter. It doesn`t matter what size you choose for your seats, always remember that what is important is that they are not too high or too low when you sit on them and they must be in harmony with the size of your bar and your room.
If you have a more formal or traditional kitchen, there are many bar stools that will go perfectly. I like a heavier stool with this look so you might try an oak or cherry stool that is solid and with arms. If you want an upscale pub look, try wood and leather bar stools that add class and elegance to any room.
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.
The classic bar stool is more functional than stylish but a wide selection of wooden and metal stools are highly functional as well as stylish. Many of today`s wooden bar stools and metal bar stools are stylish pieces of furniture in their own right that also fulfill the function of the classic stool. The swivel seat is an excellent feature on many stools, especially if they will be used in a tight space, but be careful as the swivels on some stools tend to break and are not as durable as getting a non-swivel stool. Seat backs are also a good feature to consider as they are more comfortable. When trying to choose a style for your bar look to the rest of the dining area for inspiration. Many manufacturers offer the same style of furniture in both a bar stool and chair version.
