Bar stools. Monday , September 26th , 2016 - 10:27:38 AM
Internet stores sell everything from shoelaces to automobiles. Many offer name brand bar stools at incredible discounted prices, but offer very little in terms of personal service, servicing warranty issues, and assisting customers in selecting the proper fit and finish for their particular application. Remember that every monitor displays colors differently. Fabrics shown on screen may not match the actual fabric. Additionally, you cannot try them out by sitting on your computer screen! For these reasons, it often pays to spend a little more to deal with an actual brick and mortar store who will take care of any issues locally as well as provide value-added services such as in home design consultation, delivery and setup of your furniture.
You can buy a bar stool for as little as $9. Typically bar stools less than $100 are "RTA" or "Ready to Assemble". This means that the bar stool must be bolted together by the customer. Using as many as FIFTY (yes, I once sold a stool that required 50 bolts) bolts, legs must be attached, seats must be attached, arms, back, seat frame, etc. Every bolt used to assemble a bar stool is a potential problem. Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse, many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt's threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally, lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color, one fabric, no options.
Upholstery - There are a number of upholstery options and styles available for bar stools with the main choices being wood, plastic/acrylic, fabric, leather, and vinyl. When trying to figure out which upholstery will work best for your home the best place to start looking is your kitchen or bar area to determine which will go best. If your kitchen or bar area already has a pre-existing modern vibe opt for something a little more edgy such as modern plastic/acrylic stools that are often available in a variety of fun modern colors to choose from. If you take pride in your kitchen's wood workmanship you can easily accentuate this with wood bar stools that come in a number of different finishes to match your cabinets or counters. We all love kids, but know that they are prone to spills and stains on our furniture. If you have kids in your house stick with a material that can be easily cleaned such as vinyl. If you are opting more for comfort and will be using your stools for extended seating fabric upholstery is always a safe bet for a comfortable sitting experience.
