Eulalie Dupuy Bar Stools January 31, 2018 19:23:00
Why are these heights chosen? Firstly an average height American will be able to consume a quick snack either standing by or sitting up on the kitchen stool with such chosen height of a stool and a bar top. Secondly it will be possible to prepare breakfast food or drinks on a bar top even though the 40 inch surface height is a bit high for that purpose. Usually the food can be prepared from the one side of the bar top while consumed from the other.
This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers you`ll get 10 responses. In my opinion wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel) screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
