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.
Backless stools are great when you need occasional extra seating or in situations where you don’t want to obstruct a view with tall backs. Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views. If your game room or kitchen faces a lake or river, for example, you may not want backs extending above your counter that may obstruct your view.
Although many stools are affordable to buy you can have some especially made just for your home, these designer stools are more expensive but have that unique feel to them. When deciding on the stool that will suit your needs going for the cheap stools doesn’t always pay, they may seem like a bargain at the time, but will they last and be able to cope with constant traffic over them. Wooden are very popular; you can have them made in many different types of wood, painted or unpainted. Also chrome are equally as popular, both wooden and chrome bar stools are built to last and are very fashionable; you can match those to virtually any other pieces of furniture in your home.
Another advantage of modern stools is that you can change their designs when you are tired of their present design. For example, you can paint or re-stain wooden stools or redesign them. You’d be really surprised how much of a change a fresh coat of paint can bring about in these stools. It’s very easy and inexpensive to give your wooden bar stools a makeover! By painting it in a color that matches your surrounding theme, your bar stools would make a world of difference to your interiors. If you are using them for indoor purposes, you can add cushions with nicely printed covers for enhancing the looks and comfort level of these stools.
