Whether you’re redesigning your cafe interior or simply looking for some additional bar stools, then we’ve put together a few handy tips to help you find the stool that’s right for you. You may have even started your search and found that with so many options it can be quite overwhelming. The first place to start is by limiting your choice to stools which are described as ‘commercial’. These are manufactured especially for cafes, bars, and eateries and designed to withstand frequent daily use. So never be tempted to buy a stool that isn’t commercial, as it simply isn’t up to the job.
Complements the décor
When choosing your bar stools you should look for a style that fits in with your décor and adds visual appeal to the surroundings. For a rustic style of cafe you may want to choose wooden bar stools which are in keeping with the warmth of the environment. For an urban cafe, you could consider metal stools such as Tolix which give an industrial feel. For a cafe that is more traditional, then how about a stool which combines a metal frame with a timber seat, such as our hairpin stool in black? Don’t be afraid to be creative with your choice and play with colours and styles to create a visual appeal that will have customers coming back for more.
Are you looking to purchase stools for outside or are you looking to add them to the interior of your cafe? This is more significant than you might think, since if you’re buying a stool to use outdoors then it needs to be fit for the purpose so that it can withstand the harsh Australian climate. On the other hand, an indoor stool needs to be one that can withstand the daily rigours of a bustling environment, and the abuse that comes with it. If your stools are designed for a specific use and you don’t adhere to that, then you could invalidate your warranty, so be sure to heed the manufacturer’s guide lines.
That all important pop of colour is so important to bring your interior and exterior to life and to stamp your own personality on it. Stools are great for this purpose since you can choose metal stools which have been powder coated in any number of vibrant shades and hues, or you can use wooden stools with colourful vinyl seats. Playing with colour really can add visual interest.
Size is an all important factor when buying bar stools as they need to be proportionate to the size of your establishment. You might want to consider backless stools or stools with a small back which take up less space if you have a small venue. For larger venues, you could consider stools with a wider back or a fuller bucket style. It’s always a good idea to take measurements and map out a floor plan so you know just where you’re going to place your stools and how many you will need.
