Marco Eichel. Bar Stools. October 26th , 2017.
Wood Stools. If you choose wood stools, look for cedar, teak, or pressure-treated pine. All three offer long-term durability and are often waterproof. They`re also quite attractive. If you have Adirondack patio chairs or other wooden patio chairs, then wooden stools would complement the total look of your yard. In most climates, wood bar stools can be left outside during the summer and part of the fall. You may want to bring them in for very heavy summer storms. You should store them somewhere dry during the wet, cold months to prevent splintering and excess wear.
The size of outdoor bar stools may come in heights from 28 to 34 inches tall and 16 to 25 inches wide. How an outdoor stool will be utilized will dictated by its size and height. Chose a stool size that will be best suited for the environment in which it will be used.
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.
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.
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.
