A very common piece of furniture in the home is the bar stool. They come in handy in all kinds of places, from the kitchen to the balcony to the bar. Stools aren`t just for the bar anymore. More and more households have them as furniture. The great advantage of a bar stool is that its height enables you to sit right at the counter height. If you have a large kitchen with an island in it, a few bar stools let you turn that island into a breakfast table or a place to relax and read the newspaper.
Wooden stools shouldn`t be placed in a setting where they are exposed to extreme dry or humid conditions. Wooden bar stools will dispel or attract moisture depending on the environment conditions. As the wood furniture absorbs moisture from the air around it in a humid environment it will swell just as it will contract when exposed to an extremely dry environment. There is a natural cycle for all wood furniture but when taken to extremes it can cause the wood to crack, weaken, or split over time.
A lot of commercial bars typically feature bar stools with round seats; as such, the appropriate cushions would be round bar stool cushions. In order to cut cost, several bars feature wooden topped round bar stools rather than cushioned stools. While I believe there`s nothing wrong with that, it shouldn`t be at the expense of the customer`s satisfaction! How much can cushions cost? Despite their minimal cost, round bar stool cushions make a lot of difference in keeping a bar`s clientele coming back. By the way if the bar you frequent as a customer does not have round bar stool cushions, change it!
The drawback with stainless steel stool for a bar is that it is quite heavy. An alternative metal to construct quality stool is aluminum. Known for being ultra-light and non-corrosive, aluminum is also respected for its strength.
Many wooden stools come cushioned as well, adding a bit of color and brightness to the beautiful finished wood. These cushioned stools look great in the family or game room or even in a dining room sitting. The materials used in cushioned stools can be anything from cheap plastic covering to real and faux leather, to cloth and even in some cases velvet. Of course the higher quality the cushion the higher the cost of the bar stool.
A contemporary style calls for sleek modern lines. You can get interesting stools in chrome or steel that will go great with chrome appliances. If your kitchen has the dark mysterious look, try adding bar stools with a black finish. To add some zip you can use bar stools that have a funky design, or if you aren`t that adventurous, try some with a half back or V shaped legs.
