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.
While some plastic stools are rather cheap looking and not something most people would choose to have in their homes, others are well made and come in a variety of styles that are perfect for the more modern kitchen giving the dining area a very bright and futuristic 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.
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.
Kinds of Wooden Bar Stools There are different kinds of bar chairs and stools available in the market, for example, American, Crown, School House, Vertical Slat, and Window etc. These bar stools are tested and approved by BIFMA to be used for commercial use. These wooden bar chairs are made up using premium hardwood. Also, wooden bar chairs and stools are carved flawlessly as compared to metal ones. Many furniture retailers also manufacture bar stools stained in two different looks, which gives a unique look. Such stools usually have two colors, a light and dark contrast, which gives an appealing and inviting look to the customers.
New plastic resin stools are great for use on the patio, deck or at the poolside, as they are simple and easy to clean with a hose or damp cloth. Some of the resins used in plastic bar stools made for outside use are so resistant to the sun`s hot UV rays and weather that they remain looking almost new year after year. Many of these out door stools fold up for easy storage during cold weather saving room in your garage or storage shed.
A restaurant owner avoids crowding their dinning room, the same logic holds true for the bar area. Too much furniture crowded together can cause an uncomfortable experience for the customer. The industry standard for seating placement is 26 to 30 inches distance as measured from the center of each stool. This provides enough room for dinners to eat and socialize without feeling crowded. Using this method, a business owner can measure their allotted bar space and then determine how many bar stools they will need.
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.
