Bar stools are becoming more and more popular both for home and commercial use. Whether you are choosing stools for your home or for that little bistro or bar there are some things you consider when purchasing a bar stool. Here are just a few things you should consider when shopping for the perfect stool for your home or business. One consideration when choosing a bar stool is where you plan on using it. For example a bar stool you want to use in your family room may be quite different than what you would choose for your patio or even your kitchen. Likewise a stool that is going to be used for commercial use will have to be more durable than one used for the private use of a family of two. Where and how your stool will be used will make a large difference in the material your stool is made of and the style of stool you choose.
18 inch stool heights are typically the smallest size available, as shorter heights would be too small for anything practical for most adults. An 18 inch stool size is commonly used in areas where your counter, desk, or table is around 30 inches high. This stool size is typical in bathroom vanities and make-up tables. They have also been known to hang out in theater dressing rooms and casino slots. 24 and 26 inch bar stool heights are rather new and are designed to be used for counter heights of 36-39 inches. This seat height was designed specifically for kitchen counters, usually where there is no extra room for the conventional table and chairs. They can also be used at kitchen islands, given the island is the same height as a regular-sized kitchen table and not taller.
Although many stools are affordable to buy you can have some especially made just for your home, these designer stools are more expensive but have that unique feel to them. When deciding on the stool that will suit your needs going for the cheap stools doesn’t always pay, they may seem like a bargain at the time, but will they last and be able to cope with constant traffic over them. Wooden are very popular; you can have them made in many different types of wood, painted or unpainted. Also chrome are equally as popular, both wooden and chrome bar stools are built to last and are very fashionable; you can match those to virtually any other pieces of furniture in your home.
As for a dollar amount, the average higher-quality bar stool should be in the $199 to $349 range regardless of where you shop. Stools with special features such as tilt-swivel mechanisms, real leather seating, casters or custom heights may cost as much as $400 to $600 each. Some designer hand carved wood stools with multi-step finishes can cost $1,000 to $3,000 each. If your budget allows you, try to upgrade from the RTA bar stools to welded construction. They will last longer, be safer for you and your family, AND should allow you the ability to customize the height, fabric, and finish you want.
