Laverne Mallet Counter Stools January 15, 2018 15:14:15
Metal counter stools and bar stools are beautiful and with the elegant charm, they fit with a transitional, Art Deco, French, traditional, or modern style home. Without doubt, metal counter stools and bar stools are often made with classic wrought iron for a stylish look. As an example, the scroll work is gorgeous that could be embellished with casting accents. With this, you could choose a bold, colorful fabric or something neutral, whatever works best for your needs.
These stools are integral furniture articles that allow you to enjoy great family times over a cup of coffee, a round of drinks or breakfast. They could also be used for your children to do their homework since counters provide an excellent workspace. They are especially useful to entertain neighbors and guests as you work in the kitchen across the counter. But besides all these functionalities, counter stools make your home look elegant and beautiful as their designs speak of your taste and style.
Wooden counter stools are probably the most popular because not only do they look great inside the home, they usually have a cozy inviting feeling to them. I would advise you get them with backs just in case of extended stays for a period of time on the stool. They can come with pads or not, i would suggest not only because pads can be easily damaged by reckless kids and are typically much harder to clean then a solid wood surface. Arm rests are probably not a must since you can always place your arms up onto the counter (despite what mom tells you). If you are getting counter stools for outside or just for durabilitys sake then definitely go metal because it is hard to damage those puppies and they can withstand all kinds of weather conditions.
There are many types of stools as well, including backless, swivel, and stools with back support. Then there are several different styles like contemporary, antique, and traditional. Stools come in many different materials as well, the most common being wood, metal, and upholstered barstools. There are also stools designed specifically for outdoor use and those that are designed to be an indoor show piece. When it comes to picking the design of your counter stools there is truly no end to the mold, weave, or build of your stool. It does not matter if your stool is a simple as a flat platform on four legs, or as complex as a wooden octopus.
You can see that a 44 inch counter height would give more leeway for people who are a little larger. There is also the problem of people who are taller. They often need taller stools. They need a higher foot rail in order to comfortably rest their feet. Otherwise, they are forced to stretch down and put their feet on the floor from the height of the stool.
If you have a breakfast bar or wet bar in your home, then you need bar stools or counter stools. With so many designs from which to choose, you can be sure there are many styles that will look beautiful while offering complete functionality. There are some options to consider so your bar stool or counter stool is completely comfortable, sturdy, and fantastic looking.
