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.
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.
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.
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.
Construction of Wooden Bar Stool Wooden stools made using hardwood are crafted immaculately and give long lasting sheen. Hardwood requires nails, composites and durable screws. Though, hardwood is expensive, it comes out with the best results.
If you are looking for stools for your home, you might just want to spare a few minutes to see what styles of stools are available in both padded and plastic. You might just be surprised at the variety, style and colors these two types of stools can offer. While not every bar stool will fit every type of décor or individual taste having so many different materials and styles to choose from increases the chances of finding the right one for your home. Padded and plastic stools are just two of the many choices available today.
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.
One type of stool that is commonly used today is the home bar stool. This comes with a foot rest and is quite higher and narrower compared to other stools. And they are not just made for the home bar. The kitchen counter is also an ideal place to install these stools.
