There are many materials available to build your island with such as: wood and stainless steel as well as a wide variety of countertop options like quartz or granite that will give your kitchen island an original design. Your materials should be selected to match the rest of your kitchen. A kitchen island should complement the space without overwhelming it or sticking out. Wood can give a kitchen a rustic, chic feel while natural stones like granite and quartz offer your new surface durability and timeless elegance. Stainless steel is a great surface to use for cooking and creating edible masterpieces and marble could be another alternative to a traditional design, depending on your budget.

Theyll turn a simple bar into an inviting space for entertaining and add much needed seating for parties or smaller gatherings. However, its important to choose your stools and other seating carefully to ensure that theyre durable and attractive. Patio Bar Stool Styles Patio bar stools come in two main styles: backless and with backs. Either can be a good option depending on your bar and other needs. If you just want a stool to belly up to a small bar, then a backless style might be perfect. These stools may or may not have swivels, but they usually have footrests. They dont block the view of the bar and are great for short stints of sitting.
Natalie Baker Bar Stools, 2018-01-12 10:55:21. Materials and Types of Patio Bar Stools: The cardinal rule on choosing an outdoor bar stool is that it should match your patios design. Wooden stools are perfect for traditional wooden patios. But if you have a casual-looking patio, you might as well get casual stainless steel bar stools. Stainless stools are definitely a great choice for your home bar. For one thing, you can be sure that it will last for a long time. The problem with these stools, though, is that they are hard to move around because of their heavy construction. If you still want to have the casual look that a metal stool would offer, then you can settle for stools made of aluminum. Known for being ultra-light, you will have no problems moving them around. And because it is non-corrosive, aluminum patio stools would last for a long time as well. Ultra-modern chrome and vinyl padded patio bar stools and exotic rattan and bamboo stools are also available for homeowners with modern-looking and exotically designed patios.
Angelique Bullock Bar Stools, 2018-01-12 11:02:25. 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.

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.
Leigh Rivers Bar Stools, 2018-01-12 11:04:01. 7. Where to Shop You can purchase stools just about anywhere at any price. 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.

The ancient Egyptians fashioned richly ornamented chairs out of ebony, ivory, and carved or gilded wood. The Romans and Greeks used the same chairs as the Egyptians. In fact, there was little change on the structure of the chair until the year 1749, when a new type of chair called the stool was made. The invention of the stool is credited to a Swiss woman named Maria Schitonstool. Maria was a pathological gambler. As with other habitual gamblers, Maria had severe problems managing her money. To deal with her cash problems, Maria would often sell her furniture. There were times when Maria would not have enough money to buy wood to keep her house warm during winter. In one cold night in 1749, Maria scavenged for wooden furniture to keep her fire going. There was none left except her bed and chairs. Instead of throwing all her chairs to the fire, Maria just sawed off the back of her chairs and accidentally invented the stool. Soon her neighbors followed Marias example and made stools out of their chairs. Then stools evolved and became fashionable.

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.

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.

Back in the times of wild west, metal was not as prevalent as it is today, and the cowboys had to make do with the materials that were more readily accessible, in particular wood. So the cowboys had to master the art of woodworking to create these stools. The other materials the cowboys had available were natural leathers, either coming from caught wild animals, but more commonly from the cows that were slaughtered for their meat. Another thing these western saddle bar or counter stools have in common is that, just like the horse saddles, they never feature a back rest, or the arm rests. Lets look at these three styles of saddle bar/counter stools.
