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 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.
The final aspect to consider is what type of material will be used in the construction of the stool and whether you want the stool to be upholstered. The old fashioned stools were generally made from hard wood and heavily varnished. These are handsome and sturdy stools but perhaps a bit heavy looking for residential use. Upholstered stools are very attractive and comfortable. You can easily have the stool upholstered in the fabric of your choice. These days stools are made from a number of different materials including wood, resin, steel, poly carbonate and formed plastic. There are a number of beautiful products on the market made from brushed chrome with leather seats.
Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining, game rooms, commercial bars, etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
Saddle stools are a unique stool option that are designed to help alleviate lower back pain, reduce pain in the shoulders and neck, minimize headaches, prevent muscular tension fatigue, and help correct bad posture. Sitting in a similar position as one would while sitting on an equestrian saddle enables the user to sit in a widened stance that helps improve blood circulation and corrects you from sitting with bad posture. They are typically used in conjunction with your current office chair but can also be used as your primary seating solution once you get accustomed to the stool. These ergonomic stools are best used in a fast paced environment where there is a frequent need to move and stretch. Some professions that best benefit from saddle stools include dentists, nurses, lab assistants, vets, therapists, hair dressers, technicians, and musicians.
