Sabrina Martin March 29, 2020 Bar Stools
Few pieces of furniture are more frustrating to spend money on than items that come in multiples. Sure, it's easy to justify a large one-off splurge on a quality sofa or a statement chandelier, but furniture sets like barstools quickly add up. One $300 barstool might seem reasonable, but when you consider that you'll need a matching set of four, it suddenly becomes a costly buy.
Now it's time to learn how to measure for bar stools. Generally, you'll want to measure the height of a bar stool from the floor to the highest seating point. Once you have this figure, you'll need to measure from the floor to your countertop. With both of these measurements, you can determine, based on the prior chart, what stool works best for your space.
If you'll just be using the stools for a few drinks and a little conversation, comfort isn't as big of a factor, so you can focus on style. Most of the time, you'll see the back of your bar stools, so choose something that has a rear view you like. Retro bar stools in brightly colored vinyl will give your home bar a whimsical feel — like a burger joint or an ice cream parlor. Wood bar stools can feel traditional or casual, depending on the type of wood and whether or not the seat is upholstered. Sleek metal bar stools with low backs can turn your home bar into a swanky hangout.
This type of barstool has a seat mounted on a hydraulic column. At the touch of a lever, you can change the seat height, a plus for smaller children or when you need to accommodate guests of varying heights.
A beautiful bar stool isn't that useful use if it doesn't fit under your counter or bar. So start by measuring your bar or counter's height. The key is to account for legroom when choosing a size.
If you decide to cover your bar stool with leather, keep in mind that leather is a natural product made from the skin of cattle. As such, there will be variations in color and texture just as there are variations in texture and color of your own skin. Generally, the more expensive the leather, the more of these imperfections you will see. The "Cheaper" leathers used in furniture are often "corrected" leather. Corrected leathers are treated, sanded and dyed to remove these imperfections. Many are even stamped with a simulated grain pattern. Corrected leathers will most often match very closely from one piece to the next and may actually look more artificial than many vinyls! Consider it a unique trait if you happen to get a barbed wire scratch mark or even a "brand" mark. Many people pay extra for these imperfections that prove the authenticity of their leather.
