Kristine Landry. Bar Stools. January 13th , 2018.
Choosing the right material can be a little tricky when it comes to white bar stools. Metals are more durable and can last longer than wood or leather stools. However, they might not be as comfortable, and depending if you are purchasing more modern looking stools, the price for metal can be more expensive. The important thing to do is measure how much money you are willing to spend on your bar equipment. If you think spending a little extra money on a more durable material is worth it, than you should go that route. If you do not think your stools are going to be used often, than spending less money makes sense. In the end, the most important thing is just making sure you find an affordable, comfortable, classy looking, bar stool that fits your personal style. Very often you are going to find that white bar stools fit all of the criteria you have when shopping for your next bar chairs.
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. Popular Patio Bar Stool Materials The materials that the patio bar stools are made of are a primary concern when choosing your stools. Stools generally come in metal, wood, or plastic. Each has advantages and disadvantages. When making your choice, consider the weather and temperature in your region, as well as how much use you plan to get out of your stools. The stools should also complement the décor of your yard, the style of your home, and any other patio furniture.
In the swinging 60s, a few people were incorporating bars into their homes and accordingly these stools began to make a small appearance in residential settings. The old wooden stools from pubs were popular but at this point we were seeing the emergence of metal and chrome stools. The wooden bar stools were found in basement or recreation room bars while the chrome and padded bar stools were most often found in living rooms and poolside. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, most bar stool, be they commercial or residential, were 30 inches high. During the late 1980s we began to see the advent of the 24 inch bar stool. This smaller bar stool is now the most popular type of residential bar stool.
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.
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.
