We know barstools | Free Shipping
Wood bar stools come in a variety of colors and stains, as well as several iconic styles: Country, Contemporary, French Country, Traditional and more. These stools lend a rich, warm look to cabinets and flooring, and give a soft touch to any room.
A popular look today is two-toned wood. This means the stool uses two different stains or colors, such as the seat in one color and the backs and legs in another.
Often one or both tones match the colors already in the room. For instance, you may want to match the color of your cabinets with the legs and backs of the stools, and the color of your countertops with the seats. This combination gives your room some depth.
If you choose a stool with a padded seat, then the fabric on the seat can match the window treatments or counter top. It doesn’t have to be an exact match — similar or complementary colors or patterns work great, too.
Our stools come in a variety of woods to match any interior.
Oak is a traditional furniture wood and shows a lot of grain. If you have oak cabinets and oak furniture in the room, you might want to match the grains with an oak stool.
Birch and maple woods show little grain. When painted or stained, these woods show a more consistent finish.
Hardwood is our most popular wood. It consists of oak, ash, birch and maple. Hardwood is just as beautiful as birch and maple, but without their higher cost. It’s durable and long lasting, and is used in most of today’s stools and furniture.
We wouldn’t use any of the woods mentioned above outdoors, because they could rot in the elements. There are specific wood types for outdoor use, however, such as teak.
To protect your floors, we recommend felts, either hammer-on or stick-on. The hammer-on felts get hammered onto the bottom of the feet and tend to last a long time.
Stick-on felts have a glue on the back which can wear off over time. You can add a spot of crazy glue to make sure they stay on. Both types of felts are great for hardwood floors, linoleum, or any smooth surfaced floor.
For tile floors, a hammer-on nylon cap works well.
For swivel or stationary wood stools with backs, it’s a good idea to add a clear plastic stickum to the back of the stool where it bumps the counter. This will prevent the stool from getting nicked or scratched.
Please measure the height of your counter top or bar so you can choose the right height for your stool. Simply measure the distance from the floor to the top of the counter. Once you have this number, there’s a height chart on every product page to help you choose.
