First, swivel counter stools and bar stools are great in that you can get on and off easily and turn 360 degrees to get a view of the room from any vantage point. These stools offer a traditional classic appeal that works well with many types of décor. If you want a touch of elegance, you could choose the swivel bar stool and counter stool made from cherry or mahogany and upholstered seats with a rich, warm fabric. If you prefer something from the Mission period, then you could choose a stool with the slated backs.
Now, two other options for counter stools and bar stools include a tropical look stool and something a little on the whimsical side. For the tropical stool, these are made from bamboo or metal painted like bamboo, metal leafs and other tropical motifs, cane back, and a nice swivel design. For a fun barstool, you could choose one made from bright red, blue, or yellow with a curved back and chrome stand and footrest. No matter what your need, you will have a blast shopping around for the right bar stool and counter stool. Prices run the gamut, ranging from $75 to $500 on average, depending on the manufacturer and materials used.
Metal counter stools and bar stools are beautiful and with the elegant charm, they fit with a transitional, Art Deco, French, traditional, or modern style home. Without doubt, metal counter stools and bar stools are often made with classic wrought iron for a stylish look. As an example, the scroll work is gorgeous that could be embellished with casting accents. With this, you could choose a bold, colorful fabric or something neutral, whatever works best for your needs.
With the increasing demand for backless stools, manufacturers have already introduced them in different types and models that vary greatly in size, style, design, as well as features. Normally, these stools are approximately 24 - 27 inches in height. They are about 5 - 8 inches lower than standard bar stools. This lowered design allows them to be easily fitted in under standard size counter tops, which are typically 36 inches tall. Some of the viable types of backless stools that you should consider integrating in your kitchen or dining area are as follows:
When it comes to counter stools, size matters. It matters so much that it can make the difference between food in your mouth, food on your clothes or food on the floor. It can make a difference between feeling your face is too close to your plate if you are eating, and too close to your beverages if you are drinking. A counter stool that is too short can also make the difference between feeling the need to constantly stretch your legs and feeling comfortable and relaxed. Width size can make the difference between sitting on the stool and hanging off the stool. Short counter stools can make an adult feel as if they are sitting in a childs seat.
There are many types of stools as well, including backless, swivel, and stools with back support. Then there are several different styles like contemporary, antique, and traditional. Stools come in many different materials as well, the most common being wood, metal, and upholstered barstools. There are also stools designed specifically for outdoor use and those that are designed to be an indoor show piece. When it comes to picking the design of your counter stools there is truly no end to the mold, weave, or build of your stool. It does not matter if your stool is a simple as a flat platform on four legs, or as complex as a wooden octopus.
