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.
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.
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.
Bars have become an inevitable part in modern restaurants today. There is a common misconception about wooden bar chairs that these are fragile compared to those made out of metal. However, once you use them, you will get to know how valuable it is. Contemporary wooden stools are manufactured with top woods such as oak, cherry, maple and others like teak, mahogany and bamboo.
Restaurant furniture can be a large investment, taking proper care of wood stools can significantly expand their life, be sure to read the manufacturer`s care instructions. Clean spills immediately, this can be difficult in a busy bar environment but an upholstered bar stool can quickly become ruined if liquor or other items stain the seat area. The faster the spill is cleaned up, the less time the spill has to soak into the fabric. Try and avoid positioning bar stools too close to walls as they will rub on the wall and damage both the wall and the stool. Try and encourage customers to not lean back on two legs, not only can this lead to an injury claim if the customer falls, it also puts a large strain on the back legs and the back of the seat which can cause either area to fracture under the tension.
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.
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.
Wood is impeccably beautiful and carries unmatched elegance with it. If you purchase furniture that is manufactured using the best quality of wood, then it is highly unlikely that you would have to change it even after several years of use.
