STOOLS FOR KIDS
There are a great many designer bar stools on the market for kids with intricate styling and detailing that makes them stand out at any kitchen bar or breakfast bar, beautifully finished and elegant. While these styles may reach the top of every fashionista’s list, those with young families may have very different needs, requiring bar stools for kids.
It is no secret that children can create a big mess very quickly, and there are various styles that would need constant cleaning in a boisterous environment. Wicker, for example, would quickly accumulate grime in the recesses of the weave, making maintenance a virtual nightmare.
Synthetic and genuine leather bar stools are much easier to clean and can be simply wiped with a damp cloth should any spillages occur. And you needn’t feel short-changed on the design either, as upholstered stools come in every guise from the traditional wooden framed styles through to retro-pastiche fusions with high gloss ABS resin shells. One piece of advice we would like to give, however, is to be wary of lighter shades such as white and cream which can start to discolour slightly if given daily punishment, especially from denim jeans. Another advantage of faux leather is the resplendent range of colours that are available. Whilst adults may adore chic, minimalistic black, youngsters prefer bright and fun tones. With zesty orange, vivid yellow and startling lime green to name but a few of our choices, there will always be something to keep the kids happy.
Chrome bar stools have been popular for decades. It is resistant to scratches, needing only a light dusting on occasion to keep it sparkling, and has the added bonus of working in any location, simply blending in with its surroundings.
A range of vital features can be specified; with plush cushions to keep them comfortable for breakfast, tea and dinner; high backed seats that give an ergonomic seating posture and a more secure feel; armrests to perch little elbows and even variable height footrests. You will also find four legged bar stools or those with flat bases built around a weighty, cast iron plate, helping to discourage energetic individuals from rocking back and forth.
The gas lift mechanism is another feature that is highly sought after, providing adjustable height and 360 degree rotation. This allows you to raise the seat closer to the bar table or countertop for a relaxing seating position, ensuring kids have easy access, and also makes getting on or off the stool much simpler, simply swivelling out from underneath. A further advantage of this is that the stool needn’t be pulled out when in use, keeping your layout neat and tidy, as well as helping to keep your floors free from any scuffs or scrapes.
Variable height gas lift bar stools are highly adaptable for kids and even make great bedroom furniture, being great at vanity tables, as compact alternatives to a computer chair sat at a desk, or even as a gaming chair for hours of fun.
