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.
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.
Home bar stools come in different styles. Retro chrome and vinyl padded stools are becoming popular these days. But if you want to give your bar a more different or exotic look, then you can opt for bar stools made of bamboo or rattan.
If your kitchen is modeled after a café or bistro, you will find many chairs you can use to enhance the look. Plain cherry wood chairs like those you would see in the upscale coffee shops always look nice and you can also get metal chairs with a stylish new-age design that compliments this look very well.
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.
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.
Most stools are designed to go under or near a bar. The height of the bar will determine the height of the bar stool. You ideally need enough room for a person to sit comfortably, legs crossed on the stool while under or near your breakfast bar.
For tropical themed kitchens you can choose from a wide selection of bar stools that will compliment your look. First you can go with a plain bamboo or rattan if your kitchen is very informal. If you are going for more of a fun look, you can try metal bar stools that have a palm tree or other tropical style cutout or similar stools that are painted on the backs with tropical designs.
