As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The \"Cheaper\" leathers used in furniture are often \"corrected\" leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a \"brand\" mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.

Bar stools are becoming increasing popular for use in homes nowadays and two types of bar stools that seem to be showing up in all kinds of home decorating situations are plastic and padded bar stools. Let’s take a look at why these two types of stools are increasing in popularity.

There are two uses for bar stools in a typical American kitchens and game rooms: First is with 40-42 inches tall bar tops, and the corresponding comfortable sitting level of the bar counter stool is about 30-32 inches above ground. Second is with the counter tops, which have a typical height of three feet, or 36 inches, and a good sitting height with those is 24-25 inches. Likewise, the small dinette tables for nooks or game rooms are often somewhere between the bar top height and the counter top height. When you want to use your bar stool (or a counter height stool) in all of the above circumstances, then an adjustable height stool is a good choice. Not surprisingly, most adjustable stools will adjust between 24 and 30 inches in height.

While some plastic stools are rather cheap looking and not something most people would choose to have in their homes, others are well made and come in a variety of styles that are perfect for the more modern kitchen giving the dining area a very bright and futuristic look.

Back support is ideal for homes with children to ensure they have proper support and do not accidentally fall off when seated. A stool with a back rest may also feel more comfortable and natural for most as the majority of people are already accustomed to sitting in chairs with back support. Contrarily, backless bar stools are more traditional in appearance and the staple for typical bar seating that you might find at a restaurant or a pub. They also encourage correct posture by forcing you to sit up right while aligning your spine. The option for a back ultimately comes down to comfort and what you are most familiar with.

This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes, I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts, legs must be attached, seats must be attached, arms, back, seat frame, etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse, many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt’s threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally, lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color, one fabric, no options.

Going back to the 70’s is becoming very fashionable and people are trying to find all things retro. Contemporary and retro bar stools can be made from either wood or steel and have some fantastic seat covers, you can get them in a vast range of colours. You can have red stools, blue bar stools or even pink stools, they can be as loud and as bright as you require. It is your home and your design to do what you want with.

It will assure you the most convenient and comfortable sitting experience because you will have the optimal leg space between the counter and the stools. To achieve that, first measure the height from the bottom of the counter to the floor. Then deduct 10\" to 12\" from this number. This will give you the height the stools should have. So, for example, if your counter is 36\" in height (which is a standard counter height), you should go for 24\"- 26\" stools. If you have a counter with a raised eating area, measure the distance from the bottom of the eating surface to the floor and then deduct the 10\"- 12\" to get the right height for your stools.

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.
