Regardless of the style or material used to make up your bar stool, you are going to want the best quality stool you can find. Look for both quality of material and workmanship. The higher the quality of the product the longer it will last and the more useful it will prove to be. Each type of material whether it is plastic, wood or metal comes in various qualities of the material. While cheaper stools may seem like a good deal, if they lack the quality to last they will soon end up in the scrap pile and you will end up paying more to replace them than you will spend purchasing a higher quality material in the first place.
Even if you plan to purchase a bar stool that is pre-assembled, ask the salesperson if it is an RTA bar stool. Many retailers will pre-assemble the bar stool and sell it at a perceived ”UNBELIEVABLE PRICE”. Look for bolts holding legs and other parts together. Avoid these bar stools if they are going to be used on a continuing basis. ”Nicer” metal bar stools typically have all-welded frames. The only bolts you may see hold the seat to the swivel mechanism and there may be a few screws holding the seat pad to the metal frame. This type of construction is far more sturdy than ”RTA” stools.
30” bar stools are commonly used for a raised eating surface in the 40 to 42 inch height range. Many homes and apartments today are built with a standard 36” high counter, then have a back splash and raised eating area. In most circumstances, if the eating area is HIGHER than your standard kitchen counter, you will need a 30” stool. 34” and larger bar stools are used for counters that exceed 42” in height. Please double check your measurements before ordering a 34” seat height. These are common enough for manufacturers to produce them, but most customers will need a bar stool in the 24” to 30” range.
Since ages, oak is the most preferred wood for making stools. Oak bar stools are highly durable and will have a long life. Additionally, they are beautiful and captivating with their polish and feel. Experts prefer oak because it is lighter than cherry. They are also of the opinion that since ebony, mahogany and other woods are heavier, oak can be preferred for making bar stools. Mostly, people prefer light colored oak to the dark colored one. A home or an office looks more beautiful with these stools. But, you should select the most appropriate stools for your use. The main point you should focus on is the height of these stools. If your intention is to use them as breakfast stools, they should be shorter than the normal stools. You have many varieties in these stools such as swivel stools, stools with back and those without back.
