If your kitchen is modeled after a café or bistro, you will find many chairs you can use to enhance the look. Plain cherry wood chairs like those you would see in the upscale coffee shops always look nice and you can also get metal chairs with a stylish new-age design that compliments this look very well.
A feature that is available on many bar stools is a swivel. These stools can turn around, which makes it easier for whoever is sitting in it to get on or off. They also don`t scratch up your floor as much, since you don`t need to push them around every time you want to get in or out. You can find swivel bar stools that are made out of wood or metal in lots of different styles.
A very common piece of furniture in the home is the bar stool. They come in handy in all kinds of places, from the kitchen to the balcony to the bar. Stools aren`t just for the bar anymore. More and more households have them as furniture. The great advantage of a bar stool is that its height enables you to sit right at the counter height. If you have a large kitchen with an island in it, a few bar stools let you turn that island into a breakfast table or a place to relax and read the newspaper.
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.
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.
Chairs have been around since the early days of civilization. The ancient Egyptians fashioned richly ornamented chairs out of ebony, ivory, and carved or gilded wood. The Romans and Greeks used the same chairs as the Egyptians. In fact, there was little change on the structure of the chair until the year 1749, when a new type of chair called the stool was made.
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.
