Marco Eichel. Bar Stools. October 26th , 2017.
Wood generally has a homier warmer comfortable feeling than a metal bar-stools. A wooden stool kept in climates of extreme heat or cold may crack or have the seams of the stool loosen up over time and usage. A quality wood garden barstools that`s designed for the outdoors will not come unglued because of weathering.
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.
If you have a larger bar, or a bar with a built-in barbecue and dining area, then a bar stool with a back may be preferable. The backs provide support, which makes them easier to sit on while eating, and are more comfortable while sitting for longer periods.
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.
