Bar Stools. Monday , January 15th , 2018 - 11:21:25 AM
3. How Many Do I Need? Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. As a general rule of thumb, allow 24 from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter, 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests. 4. Metal or Wood? This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers, youll get 10 responses. In my opinion, wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel), screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still, there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
One type of stool that is commonly used today is the home bar stool. This comes with a foot rest and is quite higher and narrower compared to other stools. And they are not just made for the home bar. The kitchen counter is also an ideal place to install these stools. Bar stools allow you to have a higher view when drinking, eating, and having fun with friends and family. Because of their narrow size, they can allow you to have more space in your home bar or kitchen counter. Also, if you have the right stools, you can heighten the aesthetics of your bar or kitchen counter. 72 cm is the average seat height for a bar stool while a stool for kitchen counters is usually 66 cm high.
Metal Bar Stools: Metal bar stools are often available in dozens of finishes. Look for a powder-coated and baked on finish. These finishes are by far more chip and scratch resistant than spray painted finishes. In addition to a more durable surface a powder coated finish is much less likely to be damaged by cleaning products than a painted finish. Fabrics: Both wood and metal bar stools may have countless fabrics to choose from. Look for high quality fabrics that complement your homes decor, as well as a fabric that works well with the finish you have selected AND the style of the bar stool. An Antique Tapestry is a beautiful fabric, but NOT on a silver modernized frame! Synthetic suede fabrics are very durable and easy to clean. They simulate the look and feel of suede, but are far more easy to care for than cotton or other natural coverings. Some manufacturers offer the ability to use your own fabric.
