Marco Eichel. Bar Stools. November 01st , 2017.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
