Popular Patio Bar Stool Materials. The materials that the patio bar stools are made of are a primary concern when choosing your stools. Stools generally come in metal, wood, or plastic. Each has advantages and disadvantages. When making your choice, consider the weather and temperature in your region, as well as how much use you plan to get out of your stools. The stools should also complement the décor of your yard, the style of your home, and any other patio furniture.
Here are some things to keep in mind: Go for pub stools or bistro stools for your living room area or even in your dining room. They add a whole lot of character to the space. Consider swivel bar stools to add more fun to the space. When it comes to home furniture, remember that you have numerous metal choices as well as fabrics, colors and textures.
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.
Wooden stools shouldn`t be placed in a setting where they are exposed to extreme dry or humid conditions. Wooden bar stools will dispel or attract moisture depending on the environment conditions. As the wood furniture absorbs moisture from the air around it in a humid environment it will swell just as it will contract when exposed to an extremely dry environment. There is a natural cycle for all wood furniture but when taken to extremes it can cause the wood to crack, weaken, or split over time.
Features such as, "back" or "backless, "arm rests", "swivel seats" or any combination of these, all have an impact on which stools will be purchased. More room is required for patio barstools that swivel and have backs and arms then those that do not. You don`t want these types of bar stools spaced too closely together in order to be able to move on and off the patio stool without hitting someone or bumping into another stool.
