Wood Bar Stools: Wood bar stools are typically offered in a few stains or painted colors. Look for chip-resistant finishes and/or stains which are sealed to protect the wood as well as the underlying finish. Look for metal protectors on the foot-rest as any painted or finished wood subject to the wear and tear of people`s feet will wear through over time. Many manufacturers intentionally distress their finishes to provide a used or worn look. Some more expensive wood bar stools feature rich multi-step finishes that can be custom matched to you particular needs.
A counter stool proper: A counter top height is about 36 inches or about three feet. For an average height American this is a good size for food preparation. And when one wants to eat breakfast at the counter the appropriate height of the breakfast stool seat is 24 inches or so which is termed the counter stool height. For busy people this is a great choice of height: The food can be prepared and consumed in the same space and it can be consumed either sitting up or standing down on a modern counter stool. Lots of choices and no hassle with setting up another table when in a hurry.
Saddle Bar stools: A great new style that is becoming increasingly popular is the wooden saddle bar stool. These stools have a longer rectangular seat and the middle is lower than the ends. Many people feel that these stools are more comfortable than normal wooden stools.
Swivel Bar Stools: A feature that is available on many bar stools is a swivel. These stools can turn around which makes it easier for whoever is sitting in it to get on or off. They also don`t scratch up your floor as much since you don`t need to push them around every time you want to get in or out. You can find swivel bar stools that are made out of wood or metal in lots of different styles.
When space is at a premium in your bar or around your counter top you will want to either get a backless adjustable height stool to take up the least amount of space or you will go for a folding counter stool. A folding counter stool will collapse the back rest the seat and the legs into a single thin plane and so flattened will become highly useful for stowing away and for transporting it from room to room and even to an entirely new place altogether such as a second home.
Metal Bar Stools: Metal bar stools are often available in dozens of finishes. Look for a powder-coated and baked on finish. These finishes are by far more chip and scratch resistant than "spray painted" finishes. In addition to a more durable surface a powder coated finish is much less likely to be damaged by cleaning products than a painted finish.
