Today, bar furniture is lot more than a three legged stool and wobbly table top stained with glass rings. One of the biggest trends in restaurants has been the development of the bar area. What used to be a glorified waiting area for patrons waiting for a table to open up has turned into a dining floor in its own right.
However, the bar area is still the favored place for patrons looking to just grab a drink with friends, catch the game or have a quick meal, so you have to make sure your bar furniture lives up to their expectations as well as those looking for a more sit-down environment. Your bar furniture needs to meet the needs of all your guests and stand the test of time.
Cherry wood barstools are a great choice and way to compromise between value and style. Whether finished with gloss or left untouched, this wood grows darker in color over time, giving a healthy glow to the bar stool. They can be designed to incorporate elegant patterns and flourishes, yet still fit well in a casual environment.
While glass tabletops are a great way to protect the wood surface beneath, they get smudged and look dirty very easily. Since the bar area usually have a quicker turnover compares to the dining area, you might not have time to wipe down the table before a new patron sits down. Bar tables are best left to solid, strong and durable wood.
