Metal or Wood? This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers. you`ll get 10 responses. In my opinion. wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel). screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still. there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
How Many Do I Need? Most newer homes and apartments with a raised counter are built to accommodate 3 bar stools. As a general rule of thumb. allow 24" from the center of one seat to the center of the next seat. A 6 foot long counter can generally accommodate 3 stools. An 8 foot counter. 4 bar stools. This obviously depends on the measurements of the particular stool in which you are interested. You can always buy an extra and use it for additional guests.
30" bar stools are commonly used for a raised eating surface in the 40 to 42 inch height range. Many homes and apartments today are built with a standard 36" high counter. then have a back splash and raised eating area. In most circumstances. if the eating area is HIGHER than your standard kitchen counter. you will need a 30" stool.
Many major chain stores now offer bar stools. While most are very nice looking and affordable. many are RTA. The following link from the Consumer Product Safety Commission contains just one example of the consequences purchasing this type of stool may pose:
Look for metal protectors on the foot-rest as any painted or finished wood subject to the wear and tear of people`s feet will wear through over time. Many manufacturers intentionally distress their finishes to provide a used or worn look. Some more expensive wood bar stools feature rich. multi-step finishes that can be custom matched to you particular needs.
