There are many materials from which stools are built. At first, wood was used as the basic material. With time the designers started combinations between wood, which was used in 80 percent of the stool bar and 20 percent insertion of metal. In time, the elements of chrome have become more attractive and wood was replaced in many cases in 100 percent with metal.
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.
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.
Construction of Wooden Bar Stool Wooden stools made using hardwood are crafted immaculately and give long lasting sheen. Hardwood requires nails, composites and durable screws. Though, hardwood is expensive, it comes out with the best results.
New plastic resin stools are great for use on the patio, deck or at the poolside, as they are simple and easy to clean with a hose or damp cloth. Some of the resins used in plastic bar stools made for outside use are so resistant to the sun`s hot UV rays and weather that they remain looking almost new year after year. Many of these out door stools fold up for easy storage during cold weather saving room in your garage or storage shed.
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.
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.
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.
