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.
Jasmine Herman Bar Stools, 2018-01-22 10:44:17. Bar stools are becoming increasingly popular, particularly because of their design and the fashion statement they hold. Their purpose, as their name suggests, is to be used in bars or pubs. With all that its aim was a clear one, the chairs are more often encountered in houses and apartments, located in kitchens or near a bar. It seems that, in a study conducted on a sample of 1500 men and 1500 women, men prefer to sit on bar stools because it gives the feeling of superiority, because of the height of the seat. There are many materials from which stools are built. At first, wood was used as the basic material. With time the designers started combinations between wood, which was used in 80 percent of the stool bar and 20 percent insertion of metal. In time, the elements of chrome have become more attractive and wood was replaced in many cases in 100 percent with metal.

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.

When choosing the right stool for you think about style, comfort, and functionality and also the right colour to suit your kitchen, bar or cafe. Here are some tips on choosing the right size, style and functionality for your bar stool. Choosing the right Size There are several measurements to consider when choosing bar stools. Most stools are designed to go under or near a bar. The height of the bar will determine the height of the bar stool. You ideally need enough room for a person to sit comfortably, legs crossed on the stool while under or near your breakfast bar.

If you have a general idea of the look and type of bar stools you are looking to purchase, it is best to search for an online furniture retailer where the pricing is much more competitive and therefor will often be priced much lower than physical retail stores. If you are buying your bar stools in bulk, often times you will be eligible for a volume discount, helping you save even more money than if you were to purchase your stools one at a time. There are also cheaper upholstery options that can help save you money as well, for example look for a vinyl or leather look-alike material if you want a leather bar stool. If you are less particular to the level of comfort your stool will provide and are more concerned with the appearance opt for an ABS plastic stool. ABS plastic, although sounds cheap and flimsy, is resistant to heat, chemicals and impact making it a viable option for bar stool seating.

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.

Arms generally add 3 to 6 inches to the overall width of a single bar stool and can add up to 18 in width on just 3 bar stools. (See How Many Do I Need?) Backless stools are great when you need occasional extra seating or in situations where you dont want to obstruct a view with tall backs. Example: You may have an open floor plan and do not want to obstruct your view from one room to another. Also consider any outside views. If your game room or kitchen faces a lake or river, for example, you may not want backs extending above your counter that may obstruct your view.

Going back to the 70s is becoming very fashionable and people are trying to find all things retro. Contemporary and retro bar stools can be made from either wood or steel and have some fantastic seat covers, you can get them in a vast range of colours. You can have red stools, blue bar stools or even pink stools, they can be as loud and as bright as you require. It is your home and your design to do what you want with. There are four main sizes of bar stools, and you will need to consider this when purchasing them, they are based on the height of the seat. You can purchase counter top bar stools which are the shortest of the bar stools and are the height of an average kitchen work top. Next are the bar stool height, these are designed for bars so they are slightly higher. The next bar stool is often referred to as a bistro stool, these are very popular for patio areas and the last stool is known as a hybrid. The hybrid stools are adjustable, you can move them up and down to suit your needs these are often gas lift bar stools. Whichever bar stool you decide to purchase it will look fantastic in your home, they are timeless and classic pieces of furniture.
Lola Rosales Bar Stools, 2017-12-27 14:48:55. There are so many different designs of stools to choose from, you can have stools with arms, without arms, low back, high back, padded and unpadded. You can combine one design with another and have a totally different stool, the possibilities are endless. You can spend serious amounts of time trying to decide on the right stool for you, and once you have you will love it. Padded bar stools are very popular, as wooden or chrome bar stools do tend to get a bit uncomfortable if sat on for any length of time, and many people prefer arm rests on the stools. Depending on the environment is if you have the bar with backs or not, traditional looking stools will have back rests, where as contemporary stools will tend to be designed back less. It is of course totally your choice, and if you want a contemporary stool which is padded, with arm rests and a back, then that is what you can have.
Julianne Gonzalez Bar Stools, 2018-01-11 10:52:55. 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.
