Allyson Yang. Bar Stools. February 17th , 2018.
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.
White stools help create a unique look for a person's home bar. If you have a darker bar it is very easy to pair the white stools with the dark bar and create a fantastic contrast in the room. You can create a very modern style by contrasting a dark bar, or color scheme, with the white colored bar chairs.
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.
In the old days bar stools were strictly utilitarian, just wooden pieces nailed together to form sturdy seats. There was not much call for aesthetic modifications, and life back then was generally plain-looking by today's standards. If you have seen movies depicting the medieval or Middle Ages, then you will be familiar with the rough-hewn appearance of their furniture. They were often unpadded as well, so sitting for long periods of time was not an attractive prospect. The Renaissance saw a sudden uprising in the call for beauty, and everything became covered with carvings and etchings. These bar stools were no exception, and their long legs in particular were made more aesthetically ornate. Padding as part of the seat and not as a separate cushion was also introduced. Not surprisingly, not everyone could afford these fancy seats, so the simple designs were still common in the seedier bars and public houses. This disparity is important to consider, since it has led to the richness of choice that we have today. In the previous century, every decade saw changes in popular fashion and aesthetics, so public houses changed their appearance regularly. Those periods saw the use of chrome, leatherette, rotating seats, and polyurethane foam. These stools became fixtures around counters, literally speaking. Being bolted to the floor, their fixed nature prevented them from being used in the inevitable bar brawl. Alcohol seems to often lead to violence of some sort, and many a bar has seen destruction at the hands of inebriated patrons. At least, the stools would be spared too much damage.
Price is always a consideration when purchasing anything and buying a bar stool is no different. While you want to buy the highest quality stool you can afford you don't want to over spend and regret your purchase later on. Set a budget that you can afford and then only look for stools within your price range. That way you can get what you want without going broke in the bargain.
