Because these are specialty items, they often can not be found at typical office furniture retail locations and can usually only be found online. Online retailers have many different ergonomic stool choices available and if you are still apprehensive about which stool to choose, their customer service can walk you through each of the options available to help you make sure it will work for your home or work environment. Any reputable website will take the time to ensure you are going to be happy with your purchase and fully understand what you are looking for.
This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers, you’ll get 10 responses. In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
Most people require either a 26\" or a 30\" bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36\" high, you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top, standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops, chances are you have a standard height counter top.
As compared to metal stools, you will find that wooden stools are quite clean in terms of their shape and line. In some cases, they are painted or stained in two-toned look. In such a setup, these stools have two colors, a dark and a light contrast, giving a warm and inviting feeling to the visitors.
One consideration when choosing a bar stool is where you plan on using it. For example a bar stool you want to use in your family room may be quite different than what you would choose for your patio or even your kitchen. Likewise a stool that is going to be used for commercial use will have to be more durable than one used for the private use of a family of two. Where and how your stool will be used will make a large difference in the material your stool is made of and the style of stool you choose.
