Marco Eichel. Bar Stools. October 29th , 2017.
Misc. With all of the proper care listed above, you should be able to ward off rust for the time being, but it is almost inevitable that it will happen eventually. Use a hard bristled wire brush to scrape off any rust stains, and then retreat with either paint, wax or both. If you are in the process of rescuing neglected a metal stool, you can use sandpaper to help rid each piece of large rust spots. Simply remember to retreat and each item should have a fresh, decades long lease on life. Metal bar stools can add beauty and versatility to any décor, and with proper care, you won`t have to replace your items for years.
Choose The Right Stool. Before you do invest in these, do take the time to ensure that the stools will work in your kitchen. There are a variety of kitchen counter heights so your first step is to measure the amount of space under the kitchen countertop where you wish to position these to the floor. You do not want the height of the stool`s seat to come within at least six inches of the top of the counter if possible. If so, it will be difficult for people to sit there comfortably. If this is not possible because the counter top is lower, then ensure there is enough room for the stools to be comfortably pulled away from the counter.
Plastic Stools. Molded plastic stools are affordable and weatherproof, but are less durable than other options and are often unattractive. If you live in a very hot region, the stools may not last more than one or two seasons because heat and light quickly degrade plastic. Plastic stools should also be stored in winter to prevent damage from extreme cold.
Wood Stools. If you choose wood stools, look for cedar, teak, or pressure-treated pine. All three offer long-term durability and are often waterproof. They`re also quite attractive. If you have Adirondack patio chairs or other wooden patio chairs, then wooden stools would complement the total look of your yard. In most climates, wood bar stools can be left outside during the summer and part of the fall. You may want to bring them in for very heavy summer storms. You should store them somewhere dry during the wet, cold months to prevent splintering and excess wear.
Cleaning. In most cases, cleaning your metal bar stools with simple soap and warm water will be more than enough, but it is important that you dry off the metal surfaces so that no rusting occurs. You also want to wash them as soon as you can since older dirt, food and dust will be more difficult to clean. If you are stymied with a spot that really doesn`t want to come out, go ahead and use some mild dish washing detergent, but make sure that you don`t leave any residue on the metal once you are done. Clean and dry the surface when you are finished and if you want to go the extra mile, use filtered water to even out the pH level.
