Bar Stools for Older People

By Adrian Higgins, 8th July, 2012

Faux leather is a huge favourite, thanks to the huge colour selection, leather-like appearance, beautiful grain and tactility as well as an impressive price. The older age group have a tendency for choosing more traditional colours such as black, brown, cream or white as opposed to the more newly fashionable colours, such as purple bar stools. They are usually padded with high density foam which makes any of the ergonomic designs cosseting and comforting; a desirable feature for those who plan on sitting for any extended period of time.

"Bar stools for older people are geared at comfort and stability, helping those who use them to relax and unwind. Encompassing several styles that range from the modern to the retro, each of these stools have there own properties which make it a desirable item for the mature populace."
Elderly Customers


Throughout our years in business, we have spoken to many elder customers who have given us great insight into their needs, and we have found that many of you like to have a place to sit when washing the dishes, when preparing meals such as cutting and dicing vegetables, or for your crafts such as painting and needlework. Padded stools are just the ticket, especially those with armrests and high, supportive backs, a number of which you will find in our bar stools section.

As always, breakfast bar stools are popular when placed at the kitchen bar are as they are the ideal height for bar tables or counter-top, as well as being durable, easy to clean and resistant to scuffs and scrapes. To this effect, ABS resin and acrylic stools can be very popular despite their hard seats; they repel liquids and need only a wipe with a damp cloth should any spillages occur; needing minimal maintenance and taking away the demands and stresses associated with the upkeep of these items.

But for a more traditional style that has a rustic charm and appeal, why not consider one of our solid wooden bar stools, which are crafted from beautiful oak, walnut and beech. There are cognac and satin black finishes, soulful walnut and natural varnish all with four legs that give grace and elegance. As well as the aesthetic advantages, four legs also provide peerless levels of stability and rigidity which results in a high sense of security to give you peace of mind.

Feast your eyes on three stylish fixed-height wooden stools below:

At the other end of the scale are stools with wheels, standing on a 5-spoke base just like that of an office chair. A wide stance makes any so-called rolling stool very sturdy, whilst each spoke ends in a nylon caster that allows for fluid motion over all types of flooring from wood to tile. Whilst having a wheeled base is ideal for moving the stool out from under a work surface with minimal effort, it also gives high levels of mobility and makes traveling between several workstations or even whole rooms easy; not needing to get off the stool at all!

As you can see, we cater for almost every need and we believe that functionality does not need to come at the expense of style, so why not browse our bar stools range using the button below to see if we have anything that piques your interest?
