Most cities in Australia have bars or pubs. These commercial establishments have in fact become one of the top entertainment and tourist spots that any urban center can offer to its visitors. Some restaurants also have a bar area separate from the main dining space where the atmosphere is rather more formal compared to the commercial and sports bars which promote a more casual ambiance.
But what makes a bar a bar? Normally, a commercial bar features a high counter, taller than the usual table and of course high stools or chairs. Bar stools can be of any shape, style, color, and design.
Consider these important tips in choosing commercial bar stools:
Durability. Commercial bar stools need to be durable and sturdy. A lot of different people will be sitting on these bar stools and leaning on these bar tables in the course of weeks, days, and months, depending on the lifespan of the furniture. These people will come in different sizes, and while most people will treat this furniture like they would their own, there are others that could abuse.
Style. The style of your bar stool depends on the owner's personal preferences and the bar's theme. For example, a plastic stool will look terribly out of place when placed next to a beautiful cherry bar. Likewise, an ultra-modern stool would look out of place in an Old English style pub. You need to match and blend your stool with the rest of your bar's décor.
Height. Height is another factor to consider when choosing a bar stool. Stools come in various heights and oftentimes, people realize that the stools are either too tall or too short for the bar or bar table. Unless you are planning on purchasing an adjustable stool, you should measure the height of your bar or bar table.
Material. Your choice of material will also be important when choosing your bar stool. Stools for commercial use work best when made of metal or wood with padded seats. Most establishments may opt for an easy to clean material, some may also prefer a more elegant and chic looking bar stools.
Quality. Regardless of the style or material used in your bar stool, you should choose the best quality stool you can find. Always aim for high quality furniture made from trusted materials. The higher the quality of the product, the longer it will last, thus the more useful it will prove to be. Each type of material-whether plastic, wood or metal comes in different levels of quality. While cheaper stools may seem like a good deal, if they lack the quality to last, they will soon end up in the scrap pile and you will end up spending more to replace them.
Price. Price is always a consideration when purchasing anything and buying a bar stool is no different. While you want to buy the highest quality stool you can afford, you do not want to over spend and regret your purchase later on. Set a furniture price that you can afford, and then only look for stools within your price range. That way you can purchase your desired stool without going over your limit.
Bar stools come in a variety of styles and materials, and carry many different price tags. Knowing what to look for in a bar stool for your commercial business will make the purchase much simpler and easier. By shopping online and looking for sales and special offers, you can usually get what you want at a price you can afford.
