The contrast brought by bar stools makes a huge difference in the appearance, comfort and function of a house. There are many things to be taken into account when you have to decide what seats you want to buy. The most important decisions are those regarding the height of the stool bar, the size of the bar and the design style that you preffer.
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.
What all these stools have in common is that they are made of wood. 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.
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.
Folding counter stool. When space is at a premium in your bar or around your counter top, you will want to either get a backless adjustable height stool to take up the least amount of space, or you will go for a folding counter stool. A folding counter stool will collapse the back rest, the seat, and the legs into a single thin plane, and so flattened will become highly useful for stowing away, and for transporting it from room to room, and even to an entirely new place altogether, such as a second home.
For a slightly more unusual look and feel you can purchase contemporary and retro. 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.
