Which room are your bar stools intended for?
Understanding where your new furniture will be located will help inform both the style and materials that you will need. Some of the most common areas that people buy for include the kitchen, living area and outdoor or patio spaces. The environment of these areas varies greatly and a set of kitchen stools are unlikely to last if exposed to the elements of the outdoors. It is important therefore to have a clear understanding of how your purchase will be used. If you need some stools for around the breakfast bar, then your choice of material is vital if you want to avoid stains and damage. If it’s the living area, then comfort might be your priority. Getting this right at the start can help you avoid the headache of purchasing something that doesn’t really meet your needs.

What material should you choose?
Now that you have considered the location, it’s time to decide on the type of material you want. Comfort will be a major factor if you are buying for the indoors and your choice may be influenced by the textures of the furniture currently in the room. Wooden stools provide a homey feel though they can be susceptible to damage if they are used regularly or if they are moved often. If you need something more portable, an aluminum design might work best for you.

For outdoor areas there are a number of choices and this will be informed by how exposed to the weather the area is. Wicker and cane can provide a robust, elegant look with the benefit of being light and easy to move. Timber can be hard wearing and full of character while stainless steel and powder-coated metal are the ideal choice if water and moisture will be an issue.
