Choosing the Right Bar Stools for Your Restaurant
By Charles R. Hobbs
Having a bar is a great use of space for your restaurant, but it is important to pick the right bar stools so that you can make the best use of your bar and so that your guests will enjoy sitting there. Here are a few considerations you should make when looking for the right stools for your restaurant's bar.
Backrests Are Good
Though stools without backs offer versatile seating angles and a clean appearance, they are not an ideal seating arrangement for many of your guests. There are many different cases when your guests will need to be able to rest their backs against their bar stool, either because they are tired, tipsy, older, pregnant, or injured.
You want stools that are stable enough to host a wide range of guests, but you also want to be able to fit as many as are comfortably possible into your bar space as well. Choosing a non-swivel stool with a smaller footprint may allow you to maximize your space while simultaneously giving your guests enough room for comfort.
Even with the recommended limitations that you seek only non-swivel stools with backs and smaller footprints, you still have a world of choices. You want to pick stools that will complement your existing d�cor and chairs without pulling attention away. Consider going with a similar material and shape to your existing chairs to pull your restaurant together as a whole. Alternatively, have your stools complement your bar area to give the appearance of distinctly separate areas. The style of bar stools you choose will determine how your guests view the space, so you may want to purchase a sample to be able to see your different options.
The Right Supplier
You can find the most beautiful, space-saving stools in the world, but if you don't have the right supplier, your time and money will not be worth the effort. You want to find a company with a good reputation for having excellent customer service and providing a superior product. It is always good to ask potential suppliers for references and to check those references. Try to find out from the references if there were any issues with delivery or the product and how the company solved those issues. Be sure to find out from your supplier how long it will take to get your new bar stools, whether they will need assembly, and whether you can have the shipping process expedited in any way. The right furniture supplier will gladly work with you to get you the perfect product quickly and professionally.
