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.

There are stools with back, without backs, with arms, without arms. There is a great range in different heights too. From the 24 bar stools or counter stools to the slightly taller standard height 30 stools, there is a bar stool designed to fit your need. There are outdoor stools which are designed to resist the weather. There are also many materials used in their construction to choose from. What Are Stools Made Of? Many people prefer wood because of the warmer feel that natural wood gives a piece of furniture. Wood stools use a large variety of different woods. Some of the more popular woods used to make them are cedar, teak, mahogany and pine. Even bamboo has been used to create a more tropical feeling stool. Some very beautiful bamboo stools have been made from black bamboo.

With many homes having bar height counters or even a built-in bar, the demand for high quality bar stools is now greater than ever. Many office furniture manufacturers are catching on to this trend and have begun mass producing many different makes and models. With the wide selection available, there are a number of factors to consider before making the splurge to purchase multiple stools. Price - The most common misconception about bar stools is that because of their large size they will be expensive, however this preconceived notion is more fiction than fact. There are plenty available that are both affordable and durable, if you know what to look for in advance. Many home furniture stores will mark up their prices on bar stools knowing that once they have you in their door they have a better chance of selling to you on the spot then you having to go through the trouble of driving to other home furniture stores to compare pricing.

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.

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.

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.

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 your kitchen or bar area already has a pre-existing modern vibe opt for something a little more edgy such as modern plastic/acrylic stools that are often available in a variety of fun modern colors to choose from. If you take pride in your kitchens wood workmanship you can easily accentuate this with wood bar stools that come in a number of different finishes to match your cabinets or counters. We all love kids, but know that they are prone to spills and stains on our furniture. If you have kids in your house stick with a material that can be easily cleaned such as vinyl. 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.

The latest model, one without a backrest is most often encountered in bars, because it is very easy to use. The colours vary, and you can find stools in the most unusual greens, blues or reds, colours that enhance the metal work, particularly in the night clubs. The material we sit on is also important so, again, the options are multiple and you may go for for fabric, plastic, or, more expensive, for leather, according to your personality, the colours and the other furniture and décor in your room. The rattan and bamboo are only two types of wood used in designing modern bar stools, and are making a come-back with a slight retro feel.

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.
