Polish. Your metal stool doesn`t really need polishing, but it can benefit from waxing now and then. The wax acts like a barrier between the elements and the metal itself. Waxing doesn`t leave the metal slick, but it can make it slightly more difficult to grip, especially for older folks and for kids. This is particularly useful if you plan on using your furniture outdoors as well as indoors. You can also repaint your metal furniture every few years to hide dings and scraps that inevitably happen over time. The paint serves a similar purpose as the wax in protecting the metal from daily wear and tear.
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.
Restaurant furniture can be a large investment, taking proper care of wood stools can significantly expand their life, be sure to read the manufacturer`s care instructions. Clean spills immediately, this can be difficult in a busy bar environment but an upholstered bar stool can quickly become ruined if liquor or other items stain the seat area. The faster the spill is cleaned up, the less time the spill has to soak into the fabric. Try and avoid positioning bar stools too close to walls as they will rub on the wall and damage both the wall and the stool. Try and encourage customers to not lean back on two legs, not only can this lead to an injury claim if the customer falls, it also puts a large strain on the back legs and the back of the seat which can cause either area to fracture under the tension.
Considering Bar Stool Choices for Your Restaurant. The classic bar stool is more functional than stylish but a wide selection of wooden and metal stools are highly functional as well as stylish. Many of today`s wooden bar stools and metal bar stools are stylish pieces of furniture in their own right that also fulfill the function of the classic stool. The swivel seat is an excellent feature on many stools, especially if they will be used in a tight space, but be careful as the swivels on some stools tend to break and are not as durable as getting a non-swivel stool. Seat backs are also a good feature to consider as they are more comfortable. When trying to choose a style for your bar look to the rest of the dining area for inspiration. Many manufacturers offer the same style of furniture in both a bar stool and chair version.
That is not all there is to take into consideration, though. You also want to consider if you want the bar stools to have backs or not. In the kitchen area, having that extra support can be nice, but if there is limited room, those backless barstools will work exceedingly well. You may also want to choose a classic look or a more modern look, depending on the décor in this space of your home.
