A bar is supposed to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. After a hard day`s work, it`s a place that a person is supposed to be able to unwind conveniently with a couple of drinks and possibly make idle conversation. Of course, there are people who transact business in bars but those are the exception. The majority of customers go there to relax and I don`t think there is anyone that loves to seat on hard stools in a bar while sipping his or her drinks-I don`t! However it`s common enough to find such bars, a problem easily rectified with stool cushions.
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.
The size of bar sloots is usually measured by comparing with the height of the bar, being measured from the floor to the top of the seat. Kitchen tables usually falls between 70 cm and 76 cm in height. A bar stool with a height of 43-46 cm fits best with this type of table. Bar tables are usually between 102-107 cm in height. A bar stool with a height of 70-76 cm would be necessary for this type of application. A bar counter falls between 90 and 92 cm in height, and bar stools with a height between 61-66 cm usually work best with the size of this kind of bar counter. It doesn`t matter what size you choose for your seats, always remember that what is important is that they are not too high or too low when you sit on them and they must be in harmony with the size of your bar and your room.
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.
A contemporary style calls for sleek modern lines. You can get interesting stools in chrome or steel that will go great with chrome appliances. If your kitchen has the dark mysterious look, try adding bar stools with a black finish. To add some zip you can use bar stools that have a funky design, or if you aren`t that adventurous, try some with a half back or V shaped legs.
A very common piece of furniture in the home is the bar stool. They come in handy in all kinds of places, from the kitchen to the balcony to the bar. Stools aren`t just for the bar anymore. More and more households have them as furniture. The great advantage of a bar stool is that its height enables you to sit right at the counter height. If you have a large kitchen with an island in it, a few bar stools let you turn that island into a breakfast table or a place to relax and read the newspaper.
There are basically two ways of getting round cushions. There are ready-made cushions available in stores all over and the second option is having custom made round cushions. There are advantages and disadvantages to these two options. The ready-made cushion is usually cheaper but restricts the choice of fabric and can also be difficult to find the best fit for your sits. The custom made bar stool cushions are usually more expensive (especially if sewing is not your strong suit), but they last longer, fit perfectly and can be easily matched with the other draperies in the bar.
It`s easy to understand why padded stools are becoming so popular. If there is one thing that people like it is comfort and having the cushion that stools provides is a wonderful way to relax in comfort while eating, playing cards or other games or enjoying breakfast or that late night snack. Padded bar stools can be something as utilitarian as a chrome bar stool with a padded seat that you use while having breakfast at the kitchen island or in the breakfast nook at that old fashion soda shop table. These bar stools can be little more than a seat cushion on top of the stool to something with a cushioned back as well as seat.
