A bar is supposed to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. After a hard day`s work, it`s a place that a person is supposed to be able to unwind conveniently with a couple of drinks and possibly make idle conversation. Of course, there are people who transact business in bars but those are the exception. The majority of customers go there to relax and I don`t think there is anyone that loves to seat on hard stools in a bar while sipping his or her drinks-I don`t! However it`s common enough to find such bars, a problem easily rectified with stool cushions.
Bar stools allow you to have a higher view when drinking, eating, and having fun with friends and family. Because of their narrow size, they can allow you to have more space in your home bar or kitchen counter. Also, if you have the right stools, you can heighten the aesthetics of your bar or kitchen counter. 72 cm is the average seat height for a bar stool while a stool for kitchen counters is usually 66 cm high.
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.
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.
A great new style that is becoming increasingly popular is the wooden saddle bar stool. These stools have a longer, rectangular seat, and the middle is lower than the ends. Many people feel that these stools are more comfortable than normal wooden stools.
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.
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.
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.
