Space is quite an issue in almost every household nowadays. And if there is a problem, the homeowner always finds a solution. Not enough work space in the garage? Well, just buy a new work bench with lots of shelves and provisions to accommodate tools. Insufficient storage area for mower and other garden tools? Well, you can buy an affordable outdoor vinyl shed. Crowded patio during parties? Well, would you extend your patio just to provide more space? The answer to that is a big NO. Having a crowded patio during patio parties is really a headache, and especially when it suddenly rains and all your guests who are frolicking in the garden would need to seek shelter in the patio itself. For some people, the logical solution to this issue is to simply extend the patio. That would be the perfect solution if you are a millionaire with ample amount of money at your disposal. However, it is not the most pragmatic solution. Why extend your patio and spend unnecessary money when you can have more space in your patio if you have the right patio bar stools.
Choosing the right Style There are a huge array of bar stools to choose from - wood, plastic, steel and even acrylic to choose from. The sleek look of aluminum or stainless steel creates a wonderfully contemporary look and feel to your kitchen To keep with a retro style look for backless bar stools. More adventurous designs include our new Cuban and horizon ranges. Functionally Think about where the stool will be used and could it be used in more than one location (such as in the kitchen, in the dining room or even outside on hot summer days. You will nearly always find that the gas lift and swivel features of our stools will be an important part of your stool enjoyment. The swivel function makes conversation easier and means you dont have to move the stool to look at your complete environment. The gas lift features enables you to use the stool with people of different heights and weights comfortably. You will need a cushioned seat if you think they might be used for long periods of time - although our curved designs are quite ergonomic.
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.
Some Types And Designs Of Stools And A Few Words About Materials Backless stools take up less room than those with a back, saving space for more seating. This is also true of stools without arm rests. One of the main advantages that stools have over chairs is that they take up less space and allow for more seating places. If you are one of those people who have a bar on the back patio of your home, then you will want to find out about outdoor bar stools. These are designed to resist the elements while retaining good looks. These too come in all sorts of different materials. Besides the obvious painted metal stools which will resist rusting, there are wooden stools too that can weather the weather so to speak, and even some plastic and bamboo. Bamboo is becoming a more popular choice for many applications due to its toughness and strength, and the fact that it grows so fast and is easy to replace. Its a very green choice for those who are concerned with sustainable materials choices.
Metal bar stools which are welded at all joints are far less prone to these problems. In addition, many companies have dozens of finishes, fabrics, and options available for a given style. For example, you may like a stool that is shown on our retail floor as a stationary (non swivel) stool with arms. In many cases you can custom order the same style as a swivel armless, swivel with arms, stationary without arms, or even a backless. 5. Price...What Should I Expect To Pay? You can buy a bar stool for as little as $9. Typically bar stools less than $100 are RTA or Ready to Assemble. This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes, I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts, legs must be attached, seats must be attached, arms, back, seat frame, etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse, many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolts threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally, lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color, one fabric, no options.
