Viollette Camus Counter Stools January 17, 2018 15:15:59
If you have a wet bar in the home or prefer a sleeker, contemporary look, then a leather bar stool and counter stool would be an excellent consideration. For this, you have many different styles such as the solid hardwood stool that features clean lines and a traditional scrolled back. These counter stools and barstools come with and without armrests and are available in a number of wood types and leather colors. Now, if you want something more industrial looking, you could change up the leather barstool and counter stool by choosing a tall model made from chrome, straight legs, no arms, and black leather seat.
To bend to this change, bar stool makers are now making stools that have seats of 34 inches in height. These stools allow people to sit comfortably, at the right distance from their food and drink. The stools that are 34 inches tall offer foot rails that are the right height to relax the feet.
First, swivel counter stools and bar stools are great in that you can get on and off easily and turn 360 degrees to get a view of the room from any vantage point. These stools offer a traditional classic appeal that works well with many types of décor. If you want a touch of elegance, you could choose the swivel bar stool and counter stool made from cherry or mahogany and upholstered seats with a rich, warm fabric. If you prefer something from the Mission period, then you could choose a stool with the slated backs.
Another you need to take into consideration when choosing the best counter stool for your kitchen is the size of the stool. While counter stools in general are shorter than bar stools, they still vary in width and depth. Its an absolute must that you take measurement of your countertop where youll be placing the stools before you go shopping. Youd be really bummed if you ended buying really great stools that just didnt fit at your counter.
The next thing to keep in mind is the height of the chair proportional to the table or counter where you will be sitting. You should make sure there is about 8-10 inches between the seat and the underside of the table or counter. If not, it will be a pinch, literally, every time you, or your guests, try to take a seat, as your legs will be pinched between the countertop and the chair. This will not make sitting at your counter an enjoyable event, and likely will lead you and everyone else avoiding this seating area.
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.
