A common question that is always asked about restaurant seating is how to determine if a chair, booth, or bar stool is a quality one. A quality piece of Restaurant seating will last longer, look better for longer, and pose less of a risk to the restaurant’s customers. This article will go over what to look for when you want to purchase a quality restaurant bar stool.

First of all, we’ll highlight the differences in wood and metal restaurant bar stools.
Wood restaurant bar stools are very popular because of their aesthetics. Most bars have large wood countertops which naturally go very well with wood bar stools. If a wood bar stool is chipped or scratched it is more difficult to fix than a metal bar stool. Sometimes a small blemish can be fixed with wood markup tools, but a large scratch or chip may require some sanding and staining. This can end up being time consuming. Over time a low quality wood bar stool will begin to warp causing a wobbly bar stool. This can not be corrected and the bar stool should be thrown out and replaced. Saving fifty dollars on a wobbly bar stool is not worth the possibility of a million-dollar lawsuit. However, if a wood bar stool is made correctly there should be no issues with wobbling.

Metal Restaurant bar stools may not have perfect aesthetic match of a wood restaurant bar stool, but with a variety of colors to choose from, you can come pretty close. The benefit is that a well-made metal restaurant bar stool will last longer than a wood one. This one key fact is why many restaurants have begun switching from wood to metal bar stools. When looking for a quality metal restaurant bar stool, you should make sure that the bar stool has a fully-welded frame. This will last a lifetime and will not break under any circumstances. A recent incident in which a restaurant supply company in Florida had the bottom support ring of their barstools connected with fasteners instead of fully welding them. With this non-welded design, a 300-pound person could stress the bar stool to where the frame snapped.

Another variation of the bar stool is the swivel bar stool. These come in both wood and metal varieties and the quality depends mostly on the manufacturer of the swivel plate. The rule of thumb here is to buy swivel bar stools with their swivel plates manufactured in the USA. Swivel plates that are made in China are not as heavy gauge and do not last as long as their American counterparts. The swivel plates made in China will usually begin to degrade and the seat will begin to wobble after a year or two.
