Bar Stools. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 11:58:02 AM
Knowing what height, what fabric, finish, material and how many bar stools can fit your particular installation before hitting the stores can greatly enhance your bar stool shopping experience. Many people expect to find just a few styles of bar stools and are overwhelmed at the thousands of options available. This article should help you in selecting the perfect stool for your home or business. 1. Height. Know What Height You Need. Most people require either a 26 or a 30 bar stool. If the counter you wish to furnish is 36 high, you will need a 24 or 26 inch stool. Most standard kitchen counters are 35-37 inches high. If you have a standard slide-in cook top, standard dishwasher or other standard size appliances that are level with your counter tops, chances are you have a standard height counter top.
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The Cheaper leathers used in furniture are often corrected leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a brand mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
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.
