Unique Bar Stools

Barstools

 
 

Bar stools have been familiar pub props for centuries. But after restaurants began to claim them in the 1940s, these elevated seats earned synonymy with dining areas, gaining a chic reputation that’s turned them into a modern kitchen staple. Turning heads – as well as bums! – bar stools also serve as essential seats for any kitchens with breakfast bars. Creatives who paint and scribble at high angles can also benefit from a comfy bar stool whilst they work, and some homeowners merely treasure them for decorative purposes, loving the flex of the bare frame.

Barstool FAQs 

Capable of strengthening a current aesthetic or bringing a whole new vibe to a room, bar stools can be classy, casual, or a little of both. The beauty is that there are all kinds of different designs to choose from, and we stock a fine selection of bar stools at Cuckooland…as well as answers to the big questions:

  1. What is the right height for a kitchen bar stool?

  2. Picking the right bar stool involves considering the surface you’ll be pairing the seat with. There are four main height categories: table (height of 16-23”), counter (24-27”), bar (28-33”), and tall (44-47”). Take a measurement of your tabletop/breakfast bar to determine which of the above is best suited for your needs. Remember, the bar stool ought to be a few inches lower than the surface for maximum comfort. Some bar stools are built with adjustable height mechanisms, which allow you to raise and lower the seat to your requirements. If you want a bit of flexibility, these particular models are the way to go.

  3. What bar stool style is best?

  4. Height is the most important element to consider when you buy a bar stool, but it’s also worth taking additional features into account for increased comfort levels. Many bar stools sport a classic design – which comprises of a single circular seat. However, if you desire spine support and a surface that’s kinder to long periods of sitting, it’s worth looking at bar stools with backs. For a raised seat that you can relax right into, have a peek at our collection for models that have arms as well as back padding.

  5. Will a bar stool damage my floors?

  6. Different bar stool designs have different leg bases, and whilst a lot of models have a protective, anti-abrasive coating or pad underneath, others do have the potential for minor wear and tear if repeatedly scraped against weaker floor surfaces. In the majority of cases, bar stools will not damage floors, but if you have a wooden surface that’s susceptible to scuff marks, it’s worth inquiring about floor protectors or placing a rug between it and the stool.

  7. Do bar stools arrive fully assembled?

  8. Again, this all depends on the design you go for. Many bar stools are ready for immediate use, whereas others will need putting together (don’t worry – instructions are simple and are always included). Some, however, may simply require a quick seat attachment. Always examine the product description information to see how each bar stool is shipped to your door.

Kids Teepee Cabin Bed

Fantastic bed! My daughter loves this as do I, it is really well made and heavy and was relatively easy to assemble. It gives my daughters room a really magical feel, would definitely recommend.

Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

So easy to use and produces simply excellent pizzas. Wood fire oven pizzas taste so much better and in the UUNI they cook very quickly indeed, (you'll need to turn them every thirty seconds or so for the perfect pizza). Well made product and only took fifteen minutes to assemble - even the correct tools were provided so no digging around in my toolbox.

The Garden Igloo 360 Dome

I love our igloo. Not too hard to put up, it's lovely to sit inside as the nights are drawing in. It's like a conservatory. Spacious too. We've added some fairy lights and candles. There is a slight smell of pvc but the fragranced candles disguise it. Looking forward to using it in the summer too and will buy the canvas cover. I may even put some flooring down to make it even cosier!
