Leather: Most "Leather" that you will find in your bar stool search is actually fabric-backed vinyl. Due to the extra time and cost required for real leather seating the price of the bar stool will generally be $50 to $150 MORE than a comparable vinyl but will last much longer and feel much better due to its ability to "Breathe". Vinyl is prone to tearing cracking and warping more so than fabric or leather. Synthetic suede fabrics are a much better option if this is a concern. Sun dry air excessive heat and cold as well as exposure to certain chemicals or cleaners can also destroy vinyl.
Alternatively you may prefer to buy stools with detachable bar stool that tie-on to the seatbacks. This gives you the advantage of being able to change the covers for cleaning or if you fancy a change of look and can be useful if your stools get lots of use.
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.
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.
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.
When you would like to establish that wild west cowboy feel in your home but you have modern style kitchen furniture and fixtures then you should consider modern style saddle counter stools. They will still be made of wood.
