How to Find The Right Bar Stool For Your Home. Bar stools are becoming a must-have piece of home furniture and are quickly making their way into homes all across the world. 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.
How Many Do I Need? Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. 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.
Metal or Wood? This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers you`ll 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.
The selection of the chairs must be based both on your house style your style of furniture and the size and height of the bar or bar counter. Bar stools come in general with heights of 60-76 cm. The size of bar sloots is usually measured by comparing with the height of the bar being measured from the floor to the top of the seat. Kitchen tables usually falls between 70 cm and 76 cm in height. A bar stool with a height of 43-46 cm fits best with this type of table. Bar tables are usually between 102-107 cm in height. A bar stool with a height of 70-76 cm would be necessary for this type of application. A bar counter falls between 90 and 92 cm in height and bar stools with a height between 61-66 cm usually work best with the size of this kind of bar counter. It doesn`t matter what size you choose for your seats always remember that what is important is that they are not too high or too low when you sit on them and they must be in harmony with the size of your bar and your room.
