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.

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.

Once restricted to the local public house in the United Kingdom and Ireland and to the imitators in North America, 30 and 24 bar stools are now common place household furniture. Not only have these stools entered into the residential furniture market but they have broken out of a centuries old mold. For centuries bar stools seemed to be of uniform size and material. Times have changed. For literally centuries, stools found in bars were 30 inches in height. Of course, the height was specifically engineered so that a person could comfortably belly up to the bar and consume much ale. The stools were generally constructed from oak or another hardwood. The stools were firmly balanced upon 4 legs that were each attached to the underside of the stool seat a few inches towards the centre from each corner. As you can imagine, having a sturdy base of support was an important element in early bar furniture.

Patio bar stools, on the other hand, have a narrow built. Thus, they can allow you to have more space in your patio bar. And that is not the only advantage of having stools for your bar. If you have the right patio bar stools, you can heighten the aesthetics of your outdoor bar. It would certainly be awkward if you have regular chairs or stools in your bar. Having matching patio stools would give your bar a more elegant look. Another benefit with having patio bar stools is that your guests would feel more comfortable while they are having their favorite drinks in the bar. Stools for the bar are not just built to provide more space and beauty to the bar design, but they are also made to give maximum comfort and convenience to guests who are fond of drinking. Patio stools are built with foot rests so that drinkers can casually seat on them. Also, some patio bar stools are equipped with arm rests that can hold a glass of beer or wine. Other patio bar stools come with swiveling mechanisms that allow the stools to be turned from side to side with ease.

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.

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.
