Marco Eichel. Bar Stools. October 23rd , 2017.
There are many options to choose from. Generally, bar-stools intended for use outside are manufactured in wood or metal with seats that are either upholstered in vinyl, polyurethane or created from solid materials. You can find stools in an array of different woods such as Cherry, Oak, Maple, and Pine, which can be stained or painted to meet your preference. Make sure they are treated with an additional clear coat to protect it from the elements.
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.
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.
Consider Your Style Options. Next, consider the space around you. What decorative items in the kitchen area can help you to choose the style of the stools? For example, you may have decorative pots and pans hanging from the ceiling. You may have other metalwork within the kitchen. If this is the case, pick up on this and invest in metal bar stools for the kitchen counter. On the other hand, you may have a color theme throughout the space. If that is the case, ensure you buy stools that work well with that color especially when it is prominent in the space. The good thing is that you will find many options to select from in color.
Metal Patio Bar Stools. Metal bar stools are generally constructed of iron, stainless steel, or aluminum. Avoid other metals because they may not be as durable, waterproof, or stain resistant as these three. Metal stools can often be left out year round, except in very wet climates. In most cases, the stools will be more comfortable if you add removable cushions. Cushions should be removed in the fall or during heavy summer storms, and stored in a dry place.
