Four Benefits of Padded Back Stools

March 17, 2015

There are barstools of all kinds in the marketplace today. No back stools (or backless as we like to call them), low back, high back, wood, metal, leather, swivel, stationary and more! One popular barstool category is stools with padding on the back. Here are four benefits to the padded back stool.


1. Comfort – The kitchen is grand central for your home and the counter has become the gathering spot for just about everything. From homework to coffee breaks to everyday dining, this spot is used all the time. Just think of how many hours will be spent in those seats. A padded back stool keeps you comfortable and helps the rest of your daily routine fall into place. A gathering spot in a lower level game room is the perfect location for entertaining to watch the big game, a movie or just relaxing with friends and family. Everyone will enjoy themselves for a lot longer if they feel relaxed and comfortable in one of these stools.


2. Counter Friendly – Did you just update your kitchen or bar with new solid surface counter tops? Stools with padding that is entirely wrapped around the stool (such as the models below) provide protection for the counter if your kids or your guests accidentally swivel a little too far.


3. Chair-Like Design – I’ve heard many people say that stools with a padded back offer up a look similar to a dining chair and less stool-like.  This provides a softer design styling similar to a parson’s chair.


4. Upholstery Options – Having a padded back opens up the color options.  Many of the stools at Peters Billiards are available in your choice of upholstery which could include fabrics, vinyl, leathers or C.O.M. (customers own material).  With the unlimited options in material you can really have an impact on the overall design of your kitchen or bar.  Whether you want something understated such as neutral linen fabric or go bold with red leather, you can tailor the look to your personal design style.
