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.
Look at the length of the breakfast bar and from that work out how many stool will fit comfortably along it. Bear in mind that people will swivel on the stools and knees will knock if they are too close together. Most of our stools are quite wide and they all include a swivel feature.
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.
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.
If you are running a restaurant, it is very difficult to adjust metal stools in all types of settings. Wood bar chairs are comfortable and adjust well in all settings, either big or small. The best feature of wooden furniture is that it suits all types of furnishings as well. Wood furniture goes well in homes as well in every kind of interiors and decor.
One of the most popular designs of plastic stools are those stools that look a bit like a soft boiled egg cup or ice cream cone. People who have purchased them claim they are extremely comfortable as well. Plastic stools are often the ideal choice for people with small children as the traces of sticky hands and spills clean up extremely easy making taking care of these stools simple and efficient.
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.
