Natalie Baker Bar Stools, 2018-01-27 14:47:23. 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.

Avoid other metals because they may not be as durable, waterproof, or stain resistant as these three. Metal stools can often be left out year round, except in very wet climates. In most cases, the stools will be more comfortable if you add removable cushions. Cushions should be removed in the fall or during heavy summer storms, and stored in a dry place. Wood Stools If you choose wood stools, look for cedar, teak, or pressure-treated pine. All three offer long-term durability and are often waterproof. Theyre also quite attractive. If you have Adirondack patio chairs or other wooden patio chairs, then wooden stools would complement the total look of your yard. In most climates, wood bar stools can be left outside during the summer and part of the fall. You may want to bring them in for very heavy summer storms. You should store them somewhere dry during the wet, cold months to prevent splintering and excess wear. Plastic Stools Molded plastic stools are affordable and weatherproof, but are less durable than other options and are often unattractive. If you live in a very hot region, the stools may not last more than one or two seasons because heat and light quickly degrade plastic. Plastic stools should also be stored in winter to prevent damage from extreme cold. Whichever type of bar stools you choose, make sure they match your home, your yard, and your lifestyle. Although its tempting to buy cheap stools, youll get more enjoyment and use out of stools designed for durability.

When seated at a bar, it is easy to become curious about whats going on behind you. The simple answer to keep guests more comfortable is to allow for swiveling. Sitting on one of these its nothing to spin to face the bar to make your order, and then turn the stool 180° to keep an eye on whats going on behind you. For those with the backyard patio bar, this means while sipping your chilled juice (or whatever libation you favor) you can keep an eye on the kids. Many homeowners have found that in redesigning their homes to better suit them, opening up the kitchen by reducing a wall to a breakfast bar has become popular. For seating at one of these what could possibly be better than a set of breakfast bar stools designed just for this case. Those with a desire for wooden bar stools because of its warmer natural look and feel will find that these are frequently upholstered in leather.

Many of the major Big Box stores offer different styles and heights at very competitive prices. They typically are ready to assemble and have few, if any options. Many full service furniture stores will offer bar stools that match popular furniture groups however may not sell them apart from high-top dining groups. If they do not offer stools by themselves, you should consider looking for a specialty store. Specialty stores carry higher end stools with virtually countless options in frame styles, fabrics, finishes, heights and other options. Specializing in customization, these are the types of stores you will want to find if you desire a designer look and higher quality than the mass produced items offered elsewhere. Because specialty stores specialize in custom stools, expect to pay more than mass produced furniture. Your bar stool will be made to order in the fabric, finish, height and other options you select. Typical turn around time is anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks and may be even longer during the winter holiday season. Let your retailer know if time is a factor in your decision so they may direct you to manufacturers with quicker lead times.

Upholstery - There are a number of upholstery options and styles available for bar stools with the main choices being wood, plastic/acrylic, fabric, leather, and vinyl. When trying to figure out which upholstery will work best for your home the best place to start looking is your kitchen or bar area to determine which will go best.

If you are opting more for comfort and will be using your stools for extended seating fabric upholstery is always a safe bet for a comfortable sitting experience.

Bear in mind that people will swivel on the stools and knees will knock if they are too close together. Most of our stools are quite wide and they all include a swivel feature. Some stools have arms rests. These rests often are quite high and can catch on or damage the bar especially on swivel stools. If you want arm rests or swivel features ensure that the height of the stools is less than the height of the breakfast bar. High back bar stools can fit comfortably partially under the bar. If however you want you put the stool away chose a lower back bar stool.

Brandy Sears Bar Stools, 2018-01-28 16:29:40. Features - Generally speaking, when you are looking to purchase a bar stool, the features and how adjustable the stool will be is usually is not the first concern that comes to mind. Although a bar stool does not need to come with the same high level of adjustability you would look for in a regular office chair, there are some features that may be desired for your home. The first feature that any bar stool should have is a footrest; your feet will need a spot to rest with the floor being inaccessible at that height. A footrest will allow you to sit more comfortably on the stool and keep your body in a natural position. One feature that is not entirely necessary but is still important to consider is height adjustment. You may find yourself wanting to use your bar stool in a different capacity which is when having height adjustment would really become beneficial. Seat height adjustment is also advantageous if you are not sure if a stationary stool will fit correctly underneath your counter. Having this feature eliminates the worry and finding exact measurements when trying to figure out the exact seat height needed to fit under certain counter heights.

It may have been soaked in salt after the cow was skinned, and in the tannery, it might have been tanned to remove the odors and prevent shedding of hair. Wooden western bar stools would then be upholstered with that cowhide leather, using metal round top tacks, which would provide a look of a western bar stool strongly resembling a horse saddle. Sometimes, a saddle horn would be added to one side of the bar seat to complete such horse saddle bar stool.

Many offer name brand bar stools at incredible discounted prices, but offer very little in terms of personal service, servicing warranty issues, and assisting customers in selecting the proper fit and finish for their particular application. Remember that every monitor displays colors differently. Fabrics shown on screen may not match the actual fabric. Additionally, you cannot try them out by sitting on your computer screen! For these reasons, it often pays to spend a little more to deal with an actual brick and mortar store who will take care of any issues locally as well as provide value-added services such as in home design consultation, delivery and setup of your furniture.
Shari Mueller Bar Stools, 2018-01-28 16:31:27. 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.
