While bar stools were once used specifically for seating at bars, they are quickly becoming a common method of seating in home furnishings as well. They are available in a wide variety of styles, designs, and materials, making them easy to incorporate into nearly any decor, whether you are using them for commercial seating, or in the home.
The most common choices for commercial seating are bar stools that are floor mounted, or swivel. This ensures the safety of the bar setting, and protects your investment. These types of stools are often mounted using a column arrangement, but other types can also be mounted directly to the floor through the legs. Swivel bar stools are available with either a 180 or 360 degree turning radius, which work great with mounted stools to allow customers to enter and exit their seats easily.
These stools are commonly made of wood or metal, and often feature a padded seat for comfort. These stools range in height from 30” models that are used with 40” tables, or 24” stools for use with counters or 36” tables. There are also outdoor models made of aluminum available that are designed to handle changes in the weather without being damaged, as well as extra tall stools that can be as much as 36” tall for those who are creating a more contemporary space.
Commercial settings often choose these stools that match their other seating options, such as benches or chairs, to create a visual pleasing effect. Stacking models are also popular for commercial settings as they can be stacked together to save on space when they are not in use. If space is not an issue, there are also bar stools with backs and armrests, making them more comfortable for long-term seating.
Bar stools are becoming a popular choice of seating in the home as well. Consumers can create a wide variety of seating arrangements that make use of countertops or other higher areas, and many are opting for higher tables so they can incorporate these stools into their kitchen decor as well. Outdoor bar stools are available in a wide range of styles that can match any outdoor kitchens or entertaining spaces as well. Common choices for these areas are bamboo or metal outdoor models as they can stand up to the environment without rusting or discoloring.
These stools are quickly becoming a popular choice for both commercial settings as well as in the home. The wide variety of styles, materials, and designs allows consumers to create their own unique look that can be incorporated with other decor to create visually pleasing settings. These stools are also available in chrome, stainless steel, and adjustable heights for even more decorating options.
Many suppliers also allow for custom choices in finishes, fabrics, and building materials, allowing consumers to create made to order designs. These options allow consumers in both commercial and home settings to create unique designs that carry over their decor.
