Many wooden stools come cushioned as well, adding a bit of color and brightness to the beautiful finished wood. These cushioned stools look great in the family or game room or even in a dining room sitting. The materials used in cushioned stools can be anything from cheap plastic covering to real and faux leather, to cloth and even in some cases velvet. Of course the higher quality the cushion the higher the cost of the bar stool.
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 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.
Chairs have been around since the early days of civilization. The ancient Egyptians fashioned richly ornamented chairs out of ebony, ivory, and carved or gilded wood. The Romans and Greeks used the same chairs as the Egyptians. In fact, there was little change on the structure of the chair until the year 1749, when a new type of chair called the stool was made.
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.
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.
Bar stools are becoming increasingly popular, particularly because of their design and the fashion statement they hold. Their purpose, as their name suggests, is to be used in bars or pubs. With all that its aim was a clear one, the chairs are more often encountered in houses and apartments, located in kitchens or near a bar. It seems that, in a study conducted on a sample of 1500 men and 1500 women, men prefer to sit on bar stools because it gives the feeling of superiority, because of the height of the seat.
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.
