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.
When it comes to counter stools, size matters. It matters so much that it can make the difference between food in your mouth, food on your clothes or food on the floor. It can make a difference between feeling your face is too close to your plate if you are eating, and too close to your beverages if you are drinking. A counter stool that is too short can also make the difference between feeling the need to constantly stretch your legs and feeling comfortable and relaxed. Width size can make the difference between sitting on the stool and hanging off the stool. Short counter stools can make an adult feel as if they are sitting in a childs seat.
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.
Now, two other options for counter stools and bar stools include a tropical look stool and something a little on the whimsical side. For the tropical stool, these are made from bamboo or metal painted like bamboo, metal leafs and other tropical motifs, cane back, and a nice swivel design. For a fun barstool, you could choose one made from bright red, blue, or yellow with a curved back and chrome stand and footrest. No matter what your need, you will have a blast shopping around for the right bar stool and counter stool. Prices run the gamut, ranging from $75 to $500 on average, depending on the manufacturer and materials used.
What are these stools exactly? Popularly known as bar stools, counter stools are used where ever counters exist. Like some other types of stools used inside a home, they are basically high single seats with or without a backrest. They are primarily used for kitchen counters or mini-bars if available in your home. They are usually without arms but some designs may feature those with short arms. They are usually made of sturdy materials keeping their frequent use in consideration.
Backless counter stools offer a great way to maximize the use of your kitchen space without cramping it up. They provide a comfortable seating wherein you can enjoy a quick snack or have a hearty breakfast. The use of this kind of counter stool has become increasingly popular these days since home spaces are getting smaller and smaller. They practically provide an excellent solution to efficiently decorate a small dining room or kitchen area.
