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 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.
Bar Stools come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and styles. When choosing the right stool for you think about style, comfort, and functionality and also the right colour to suit your kitchen, bar or cafe. Here are some tips on choosing the right size, style and functionality for your bar stool.
Kinds of Wooden Bar Stools There are different kinds of bar chairs and stools available in the market, for example, American, Crown, School House, Vertical Slat, and Window etc. These bar stools are tested and approved by BIFMA to be used for commercial use. These wooden bar chairs are made up using premium hardwood. Also, wooden bar chairs and stools are carved flawlessly as compared to metal ones. Many furniture retailers also manufacture bar stools stained in two different looks, which gives a unique look. Such stools usually have two colors, a light and dark contrast, which gives an appealing and inviting look to the customers.
on`t want the natural wooden look, a metal bar stool is for you. They come in sleek and elegant colors as well as shiny chrome. These stools will give the room a modern look. One exception is the wrought iron stool. These are made of iron that is bent into beautiful curves to form the stool. Unlike stainless steel models, these wrought iron models will give your kitchen or bar an old-fashioned look.
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 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.
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.
