Tropical. For tropical themed kitchens you can choose from a wide selection of bar stools that will compliment your look. First you can go with a plain bamboo or rattan if your kitchen is very informal. If you are going for more of a fun look, you can try metal bar stools that have a palm tree or other tropical style cutout or similar stools that are painted on the backs with tropical designs. Café. If your kitchen is modeled after a café or bistro, you will find many chairs you can use to enhance the look. Plain cherry wood chairs like those you would see in the upscale coffee shops always look nice and you can also get metal chairs with a stylish new-age design that compliments this look very well.
General Kitchen Stool. If you don't have a breakfast bar, you can still use a bar stool as a helpful accessory around the kitchen. Use a sturdy kitchen bar stool with additional steps can help you to reach items you have placed in unnecessarily high cupboards. A short kitchen stool can even act as a leg-up for a small child to reach the counter as they help you bake and learn to cook for themselves. Games Room. A stool is a great option to any game room because of its comfortable nature and effortlessness to move. Use a bar stool as a seat for playing computer games alone or with a friend. They allow for full movement of the top half of your body whilst remaining sturdy and grounded, so you can really get involved with the game without risk of pulling a muscle. As well as that, a bar stool can be used for additional seating for poker nights, or dungeons and dragons gatherings. At the end of the night they can be put away to restore space and general use to the room.

Bar stools are becoming a must-have piece of home furniture and are quickly making their way into homes all across the world. With many homes having bar height counters or even a built-in bar, the demand for high quality bar stools is now greater than ever. Many office furniture manufacturers are catching on to this trend and have begun mass producing many different makes and models. With the wide selection available, there are a number of factors to consider before making the splurge to purchase multiple stools.
Pub stools-Take note of the height of your bar counter. Although the above statement may seem like common sense I have, on many occasions, been in bars and pubs where the bar stool was the wrong size for the bar or table at which I sat. Many proprietors spend a lot of time and energy on the look and feel of the bar's environment but fail to look seriously at how comfortable the customers will be when seated. For instance if you have a bar counter that is 46” then the most appropriate stool would be 34”. A quick rule-of-thumb is to have a 9-13” gap between the seat and the counter. This will give a very comfortable experience to the customer and have the average person in an ideal position at the bar. For a traditional pub or tavern with a 46” bar counter I would recommend a high-back wood style 34” stool with a foot rest. This would provide maximum comfort with that added authentic look and feel.
The Construction. To get the bar stools of the right construction, you should carefully consider these points: Who is going to sit on the stools? How frequently will the stools be used? For how long periods of time will the stools be used? If the stools will be just used occasionally and for short periods of time you will be fine with stools of any construction, be it wooden, metal or plastic. However, if the stools will be used for long periods of time, often and by people of different weights, you should go for a high quality stools preferably metal ones with all-welded constructions. It will ensure safety and durability. High quality wooden stools may also work well but will require much more care. All-welded metal stools do not require bolts whilst wooden ones do. Assembly of some wooden stools require as many as 50 bolts. It means that regular checks must be made on them to ensure the safety of people using them because the bolts tend to loosen over time. It isn't the issue with the welded frames. So to be able to buy the ideal bar stools for your needs you should carefully consider the 3 factors described above; the style, the height and the construction of the stools. The style to ideally match the stools with your current decor, the height to ensure the best comfort for legs and the construction for utmost safety and durability.
