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.
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 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.
Many plastic bar stools have a metal base to help make them more durable and long lasting and when purchasing this type of stool look for ones where the seat plastic extends down the metal base as they seem to last longer than the ones with just a seat mounted on the base.
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.
If you are going with an ethnic, earthy sort of kitchen like a Tuscan or Mexican style you might look at wrought iron bar stools. They come with designs on the backs, arms and legs that range from really scrolly to just slightly. With upholstered seats, these can be covered to match the colors in your kitchen.
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.
