Lola Rosales. Bar Stools. January 19th , 2018.
Everyone has different tastes and preferences which is why most internet and store retailers make sure to keep a large selection of bar stools available in order to meet most needs. If you are apprehensive about purchasing a full set of bar stools for your home, start out by purchasing one and if it is the right fit you can always purchase the rest at a later point in time. Do not be afraid to ask questions, that is what furniture sales people are for and it is always better to feel absolutely comfortable with your purchase instead of regretting it later.
These are commonly referred to as COM or Customers Own Material. If you choose to use your own fabric, make sure it is an upholstery grade fabric and check with your salesperson to see how much material will be needed for each stool. Stools with backs generally require 2 yards per stool, whereas backless or metal back stools generally require 1 yard per stool. If your fabric has a repeating pattern that you want to match, it may be necessary to provide more fabric so the factory can match the placement of a design from one stool to the other. Leather: Most Leather that you will find in your bar stool search is actually fabric-backed vinyl. Due to the extra time and cost required for real leather seating, the price of the bar stool will generally be $50 to $150 MORE than a comparable vinyl but will last much longer and feel much better due to its ability to Breathe. Vinyl is prone to tearing, cracking and warping more so than fabric or leather. Synthetic suede fabrics are a much better option if this is a concern. Sun, dry air, excessive heat and cold as well as exposure to certain chemicals or cleaners can also destroy vinyl.
30 bar stools are commonly used for a raised eating surface in the 40 to 42 inch height range. Many homes and apartments today are built with a standard 36 high counter, then have a back splash and raised eating area. In most circumstances, if the eating area is HIGHER than your standard kitchen counter, you will need a 30 stool. 34 and larger bar stools are used for counters that exceed 42 in height. Please double check your measurements before ordering a 34 seat height. These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them, but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24 to 30 range. 2. Arms or Armless, Back or Backless? Stools that will be used frequently or for long periods of time (dining, game rooms, commercial bars, etc.) should typically include arms AND backs to increase comfort and decrease stress on your back and shoulders.
If you have a general idea of the look and type of bar stools you are looking to purchase, it is best to search for an online furniture retailer where the pricing is much more competitive and therefor will often be priced much lower than physical retail stores. If you are buying your bar stools in bulk, often times you will be eligible for a volume discount, helping you save even more money than if you were to purchase your stools one at a time. There are also cheaper upholstery options that can help save you money as well, for example look for a vinyl or leather look-alike material if you want a leather bar stool. If you are less particular to the level of comfort your stool will provide and are more concerned with the appearance opt for an ABS plastic stool. ABS plastic, although sounds cheap and flimsy, is resistant to heat, chemicals and impact making it a viable option for bar stool seating.
A Quick Word About Prices Bar stools range from around $50 to more than $400, with an average of around $100. Although you can find them as inexpensive as $50, you may find that the quality suffers and it may make more sense for you to spend a bit more to get the quality that will last longer.
