Alta Haney. Bar Stools. February 24th , 2018.
If you choose wood stools, look for cedar, teak, or pressure-treated pine. All three offer long-term durability and are often waterproof. They're also quite attractive. If you have Adirondack patio chairs or other wooden patio chairs, then wooden stools would complement the total look of your yard. In most climates, wood bar stools can be left outside during the summer and part of the fall. You may want to bring them in for very heavy summer storms. You should store them somewhere dry during the wet, cold months to prevent splintering and excess wear.
When deciding which bar stools to buy, remember to take accurate measurements of the space available, to ensure a comfortable fit. Bar stools should be just the right height, so they are comfortable to sit in, with adequate legroom, but close enough to the counter top for convenience. As a rough guide, aim for a gap of around 9 or 10 inches between the seat and the counter. Think about the positioning of your bar stools and leave enough space between each one for people to be able to move freely. Commercial style swivel bar stools can work well in home settings too, and are great for saving space.
Although there is no denying that today's modern stools are beautiful, elegant and durable, the number one reason why people choose bar stools over other seating options is versatility. The fact that you can easily grab one, or sometimes even two, bar stools and take them from room to room, including outdoors on the patio or balcony, and have them look great in any surrounding is what makes them such an attractive purchase. When you are out pricing the perfect bar stools, you want to keep this in mind. However, imagining how a piece of furniture will look in multiple locations at once can be almost impossible. Try bringing along full colour photographs of the exact location where your new bar stools will be located. Make sure you measure out all of the areas you are looking to use the bar stools in so you know that you'll always have space. Try lifting the bar stools you are interested in and make sure you ask about the materials they are made out of. If you can find the bar stool that look great in casual and formal occasions, you can move on to step two.
The materials that the patio bar stools are made of are a primary concern when choosing your stools. Stools generally come in metal, wood, or plastic. Each has advantages and disadvantages. When making your choice, consider the weather and temperature in your region, as well as how much use you plan to get out of your stools. The stools should also complement the décor of your yard, the style of your home, and any other patio furniture.
Others have their "saddle" made of straight, flat wood, which might be a type of seat you are more used to.
