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.
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.
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.
The drawback with stainless steel stool for a bar is that it is quite heavy. An alternative metal to construct quality stool is aluminum. Known for being ultra-light and non-corrosive, aluminum is also respected for its strength.
Bar stools are becoming increasing popular for use in homes nowadays and two types of bar stools that seem to be showing up in all kinds of home decorating situations are plastic and padded bar stools. Let`s take a look at why these two types of stools are increasing in popularity.
The original stools were made of wood. However, these days they are made from many materials. Because of its strength, stainless steel has been used to construct home furniture, such as stainless steel stools. Stainless bar stools are definitely a great choice for your home bar. For one thing, you can be sure that it will last for a long time.
Think about where the stool will be used and could it be used in more than one location (such as in the kitchen, in the dining room or even outside on hot summer days. You will nearly always find that the gas lift and swivel features of our stools will be an important part of your stool enjoyment. The swivel function makes conversation easier and means you don`t have to move the stool to look at your complete environment. The gas lift features enables you to use the stool with people of different heights and weights comfortably.
By far the most popular type of stool is the wooden bar stool. Wood is undeniably attractive, and it has a natural look. There are all kinds of different styles of wooden stools. Some are simply just 4 legs and a round seat. Others look just like a normal chair with longer legs. One of the best things about a wooden bar stool is that they can be stained or painted any color you want.
