30\" bar stools are commonly used for a raised eating surface in the 40 to 42 inch height range. Many homes and apartments today are built with a standard 36\" high counter, then have a back splash and raised eating area. In most circumstances, if the eating area is HIGHER than your standard kitchen counter, you will need a 30\" stool.
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.
The reason for people preferring oak bar stools is that oak retains its original attractive appearance throughout its life. But, this is possible only if you maintain the stools properly. You can use normal techniques to maintain these stools.
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.
Specialty stores carry higher end stools with virtually countless options in frame styles, fabrics, finishes, heights and other options. Specializing in customization, these are the types of stores you will want to find if you desire a designer look and higher quality than the mass produced items offered elsewhere. Because specialty stores specialize in custom stools, expect to pay more than mass produced furniture. Your bar stool will be made to order in the fabric, finish, height and other options you select. Typical turn around time is anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks and may be even longer during the winter holiday season. Let your retailer know if time is a factor in your decision so they may direct you to manufacturers with quicker lead times.
