Before you decide on any other elements, determine what height of pub stools you need by measuring the height of your bar, kitchen countertop, desk, or other piece of furniture in question. Once seat height is determined, you can then decide on other desired factors, such as backs vs. no backs, arms vs. no arms, wooden or metal, swivel or stationary, and upholstery or padding vs. solid wooden or metal seats. Your bar stool height is most important for comfort and practical usability, whereas other factors primarily focus not only on comfort, but aesthetic qualities, also.
Many people prefer wood because of the warmer feel that natural wood gives a piece of furniture. Wood stools use a large variety of different woods. Some of the more popular woods used to make them are cedar, teak, mahogany and pine. Even bamboo has been used to create a more tropical feeling stool. Some very beautiful bamboo stools have been made from black bamboo.
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.
Height is another thing to consider when choosing a bar stool. Stools come in various heights and oftentimes people purchase a stool or even a large number of stools only to realize that the stools are either too tall or too short for the bar or bar table for which they are intended. Unless you are planning on purchasing an adjustable stool, you should measure the height of your bar or bar table. Your stool should sit under it leaving 10 to 13 inches for leg room and easy movement.
Finding the right ergonomic stool for your work environment may seem like an arduous and overwhelming task, especially if you do not know where to begin looking or even worse do not know what to look for. Unfortunately there is not one universal ergonomic stool that will work for everyone as each individual has their own unique work set up and each requires its own specialized seating solution. The first step towards finding the right ergonomic stool for your work station is to recognize need for one, whether you work at a higher work station and standard office chairs do not meet your height requirements, or you are simply looking for an alternative seating solution to relieve back pain. Anyone who works at a desk station should feel comfortable while they are sitting in order to stay focused and stay productive; when your chair starts making you feel uncomfortable, it is crucial to find an ergonomic solution that will ease your pain and more importantly keep you comfortable while working. Ergonomic stools are a good place to start looking, but first it is important to understand the different types of ergonomic stools available to determine which will work best for your work environment.
