The last feature that you may want your bar stools to have is a back rest. Back support is ideal for homes with children to ensure they have proper support and do not accidentally fall off when seated. A stool with a back rest may also feel more comfortable and natural for most as the majority of people are already accustomed to sitting in chairs with back support. Contrarily, backless bar stools are more traditional in appearance and the staple for typical bar seating that you might find at a restaurant or a pub. They also encourage correct posture by forcing you to sit up right while aligning your spine. The option for a back ultimately comes down to comfort and what you are most familiar with.
When selecting new or pub stools for your home, you must consider a number of things, but one element should be considered above all others...bar stool height. A pub stool size is measured in seat height, or the height from the floor to the top of the seat base. There are only a handful of stool sizes, or seat heights, from which to choose, although finding a seat height for just about any situation is not difficult. These sizes range anywhere from 18 inches up to 36 inches. Some of the more common uses of these different stool sizes are described below.
Many people think that bar stools made using wood may be fragile as compared to the metal ones, but once you use them you will realize that this is not the case. Modern wooden stools are made from treated woods such as maple, cherry, teak, mahogany, oak and even bamboo.
Backless stools are great when you need occasional extra seating or in situations where you don’t want to obstruct a view with tall backs. Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views. If your game room or kitchen faces a lake or river, for example, you may not want backs extending above your counter that may obstruct your view.
Here, a swivel feature of the bar stool seat is understood, where the entire seat, possibly with the back rest and the armrests is rotated. Why are there so many variants of swivel bar stools for sale? The reason is simple: The swivel function enables an easy access to and an easy exit from the bar counter stool. Bar counter stools are typically 30 inches high or more, which is almost double the height of the sitting surface of a regular chair. So one practically needs to climb into a stool to seat in place. Consequently, there is no way one could push the chair closer to the bar or counter - the legs are hanging in the air when seated. Therefore, the way to get closer to the table, bar, or counter is to swing into it, hence the swivel option.
