Once you have decided upon what room might suit the addition of a stool you must apply your mind to what type of bar stool you might like. There are many different styles and designs to choose from. Your choice of stool will depend entirely on the decor of the room in which it is intended to be placed and upon your own personal tastes. You will also want to consider who might be sitting in the stool and the durability of the same.
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.
Price is always a consideration when purchasing anything and buying a bar stool is no different. While you want to buy the highest quality stool you can afford you don’t want to over spend and regret your purchase later on. Set a budget that you can afford and then only look for stools within your price range. That way you can get what you want without going broke in the bargain.
24 and 26 inch bar stool heights are rather new and are designed to be used for counter heights of 36-39 inches. This seat height was designed specifically for kitchen counters, usually where there is no extra room for the conventional table and chairs. They can also be used at kitchen islands, given the island is the same height as a regular-sized kitchen table and not taller.
There are so many different designs of stools to choose from, you can have stools with arms, without arms, low back, high back, padded and unpadded. You can combine one design with another and have a totally different stool, the possibilities are endless. You can spend serious amounts of time trying to decide on the right stool for you, and once you have you will love it. Padded bar stools are very popular, as wooden or chrome bar stools do tend to get a bit uncomfortable if sat on for any length of time, and many people prefer arm rests on the stools. Depending on the environment is if you have the bar with backs or not, traditional looking stools will have back rests, where as contemporary stools will tend to be designed back less. It is of course totally your choice, and if you want a contemporary stool which is padded, with arm rests and a back, then that is what you can have.
