Once you have decided upon what room might suit the addition of a stool you must apply your mind to what type of bar stool you might like. There are many different styles and designs to choose from. Your choice of stool will depend entirely on the decor of the room in which it is intended to be placed and upon your own personal tastes. You will also want to consider who might be sitting in the stool and the durability of the same.
Once you have determined the appropriate height you can then consider other characteristics such as the structure of the stool. The two main structural elements to consider are a) whether the stool will have a back and b) whether the seat will swivel. Stools with backs are far more comfortable than stools without backs. When deciding if a back is needed consider the length of time someone might be expected to sit at the stool. Having a swivel seat bar stool can be convenient but is a luxury. Swivel seat stools tend to be more expensive but in the end save wear and tear on your floor.
There are four main sizes of bar stools, and you will need to consider this when purchasing them, they are based on the height of the seat. You can purchase counter top bar stools which are the shortest of the bar stools and are the height of an average kitchen work top. Next are the bar stool height, these are designed for bars so they are slightly higher. The next bar stool is often referred to as a bistro stool, these are very popular for patio areas and the last stool is known as a hybrid. The hybrid stools are adjustable, you can move them up and down to suit your needs these are often gas lift bar stools. Whichever bar stool you decide to purchase it will look fantastic in your home, they are timeless and classic pieces of furniture.
Typical adjustable height counter stool will readily adjust between the counter height of about 24 – 25 inches to 29 – 32 inches or so bar height. This will allow a stool like that to be used at the bar top, as well as at the counter top, which will add to its choices. While the bar stools and the counter stools are available in both metal or chrome or wood finish, an adjustable height stool is usually only available in the chrome finish or a stainless steel finish as these are the only ways the single foot of a stool can be made height adjustable. That single foot contains a pneumatic mechanism that uses compressed air to lift the seat surface upward and uses the person’s own weight to lower the stool surface downward.
