Also, there are bar stools with or without backrest. The latest model, one without a backrest is most often encountered in bars, because it is very easy to use. The colours vary, and you can find stools in the most unusual greens, blues or reds, colours that enhance the metal work, particularly in the night clubs. The material we sit on is also important so, again, the options are multiple and you may go for for fabric, plastic, or, more expensive, for leather, according to your personality, the colours and the other furniture and décor in your room.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
