Typical adjustable height counter stool will readily adjust between the counter height of about 24 - 25 inches to 29 - 32 inches or so bar height. This will allow a stool like that to be used at the bar top, as well as at the counter top, which will add to its choices. While the bar stools and the counter stools are available in both metal or chrome or wood finish, an adjustable height stool is usually only available in the chrome finish or a stainless steel finish as these are the only ways the single foot of a stool can be made height adjustable. That single foot contains a pneumatic mechanism that uses compressed air to lift the seat surface upward and uses the person’s own weight to lower the stool surface downward.
Bar stools are becoming a must-have piece of home furniture and are quickly making their way into homes all across the world. With many homes having bar height counters or even a built-in bar, the demand for high quality bar stools is now greater than ever. Many office furniture manufacturers are catching on to this trend and have begun mass producing many different makes and models. With the wide selection available, there are a number of factors to consider before making the splurge to purchase multiple stools.
To get the bar stools of the right construction, you should carefully consider these points: Who is going to sit on the stools? How frequently will the stools be used? For how long periods of time will the stools be used? If the stools will be just used occasionally and for short periods of time you will be fine with stools of any construction, be it wooden, metal or plastic. However, if the stools will be used for long periods of time, often and by people of different weights, you should go for a high quality stools preferably metal ones with all-welded constructions. It will ensure safety and durability. High quality wooden stools may also work well but will require much more care. All-welded metal stools do not require bolts whilst wooden ones do. Assembly of some wooden stools require as many as 50 bolts. It means that regular checks must be made on them to ensure the safety of people using them because the bolts tend to loosen over time. It isn’t the issue with the welded frames.
Retro Bar Stools can often be somewhere in the middle between the elegant or contemporary or sharp and the wooden or softer feeling stools. They are often made of steel with chrome finish, and often accentuate the spirit of an era gone by, such as the 50’s. They will resemble the stools found in the old-time diners, where a person would sit at the oval bar, and be served by a waiter or waitress operating in the center of the oval. Often retro bar counter stool seats will be stitched the emblems of the sports teams and sold in support of various basketball, football, or baseball teams. Such retro stools make a great addition to any game room and are great for kitchens and dinettes as well for people always on the run. Besides black leather and black faux leather, retro stools come in other colors, typically red. They would rarely come as swivel stools.
The best thing about these stools is their durability and strength. They are much more versatile than other types of stools. As metal stools have a hard time fitting into different types of decor, these contemporary bar stools are your best bet. They are so simple to change once your decor changes. Once you purchase wooden stools, you won’t have to change them as they can adjust to any type of decor and will last for years.
