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.
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.
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.
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.
A feature that is available on many bar stools is a swivel. These stools can turn around, which makes it easier for whoever is sitting in it to get on or off. They also don`t scratch up your floor as much, since you don`t need to push them around every time you want to get in or out. You can find swivel bar stools that are made out of wood or metal in lots of different styles.
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.
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.
