Heidi Gilmore Stool, 2017-07-03 04:59:05. Wood Bar Stools: Wood bar stools are typically offered in a few stains or painted colors. Look for chip-resistant finishes and/or stains which are sealed to protect the wood as well as the underlying finish. Look for metal protectors on the foot-rest as any painted or finished wood subject to the wear and tear of people’s feet will wear through over time. Many manufacturers intentionally distress their finishes to provide a used or worn look. Some more expensive wood bar stools feature rich, multi-step finishes that can be custom matched to you particular needs.

Features - Generally speaking, when you are looking to purchase a bar stool, the features and how adjustable the stool will be is usually is not the first concern that comes to mind. Although a bar stool does not need to come with the same high level of adjustability you would look for in a regular office chair, there are some features that may be desired for your home. The first feature that any bar stool should have is a footrest; your feet will need a spot to rest with the floor being inaccessible at that height. A footrest will allow you to sit more comfortably on the stool and keep your body in a natural position.

A saddle stool features a different way of sitting with its seat shaped in the form of a saddle similar to one that you would see on a horse’s back. This seating option works best for dentist or medical offices where the ability to sit in one sturdy position is helpful. For example, when a dentist is cleaning a patient’s teeth and wants to stay in one place without having to slide around to get comfortable, a saddle stool would definitely be of use. With seat height adjustment and seat angle adjustment, saddle stools are also an ergonomic option as they have quite a few adjustments and aid the user in sitting with proper posture.

Whether you are choosing stools for your home or for that little bistro or bar there are some things you consider when purchasing a bar stool. Here are just a few things you should consider when shopping for the perfect stool for your home or business.
Carolina Lee Stool, 2017-07-13 08:58:25. 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.

Stools come in various heights and oftentimes people purchase a stool or even a large number of stools only to realize that the stools are either too tall or too short for the bar or bar table for which they are intended. Unless you are planning on purchasing an adjustable stool, you should measure the height of your bar or bar table. Your stool should sit under it leaving 10 to 13 inches for leg room and easy movement.

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.

The two main structural elements to consider are a) whether the stool will have a back and b) whether the seat will swivel. Stools with backs are far more comfortable than stools without backs. When deciding if a back is needed consider the length of time someone might be expected to sit at the stool. Having a swivel seat bar stool can be convenient but is a luxury. Swivel seat stools tend to be more expensive but in the end save wear and tear on your floor.
Carolina Lee Stool, 2017-07-11 16:10:37. 18 inch stool heights are typically the smallest size available, as shorter heights would be too small for anything practical for most adults. An 18 inch stool size is commonly used in areas where your counter, desk, or table is around 30 inches high. This stool size is typical in bathroom vanities and make-up tables. They have also been known to hang out in theater dressing rooms and casino slots.

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.
