Jeannine Castro Stool, 2017-05-31 16:40:18. 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.

For example, a plastic stool will look terribly out of place when placed next to a beautiful cherry bar. Likewise, an ultra modern stool would look out of place in an Old English style pub. You want your stool to match and blend in or accent the rest of your room’s décor.

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.

And when one wants to eat breakfast at the counter, the appropriate height of the breakfast stool seat is 24 inches or so, which is termed the counter stool height. For busy people, this is a great choice of height: The food can be prepared and consumed in the same space, and it can be consumed either sitting up or standing down on a modern counter stool. Lots of choices, and no hassle with setting up another table when in a hurry.
Kelli Pope Stool, 2017-08-18 04:53:20. Once you have determined the appropriate height you can then consider other characteristics such as the structure of the stool. 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.
Tonia Nieves Stool, 2017-08-16 23:36:12. If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. 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.
Tonia Nieves Stool, 2017-08-15 19:29:42. Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining, game rooms, commercial bars, etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
Belinda Carson Stool, 2017-08-17 01:53:59. For those with a need to see what’s happening around them, there are swivel bar stools. When seated at a bar, it is easy to become curious about what’s going on behind you. The simple answer to keep guests more comfortable is to allow for swiveling. Sitting on one of these it’s nothing to spin to face the bar to make your order, and then turn the stool 180° to keep an eye on what’s going on behind you. For those with the backyard patio bar, this means while sipping your chilled juice (or whatever libation you favor) you can keep an eye on the kids.
Toni Sweet Stool, 2017-08-17 20:19:51. If you are one of those people who have a bar on the back patio of your home, then you will want to find out about outdoor bar stools. These are designed to resist the elements while retaining good looks. These too come in all sorts of different materials. Besides the obvious painted metal stools which will resist rusting, there are wooden stools too that can weather the weather so to speak, and even some plastic and bamboo. Bamboo is becoming a more popular choice for many applications due to its toughness and strength, and the fact that it grows so fast and is easy to replace. It’s a very green choice for those who are concerned with sustainable materials choices.
