Modern industrial garage bar stool

QUANZHOU AUTO FURNITURE CO.,LTD

This cast iron and steel stool has a classic look that any old-timer would appreciate. The contoured saddle seat distributes weight up to 440 pounds, and it boasts an anti-rust coating, anti-scratch rubber on the feet, and a wide base for maximum stability.    

Designer Advice:

This stool makes a great addition to a modern or traditional space. You’ll do well to pair it with a wooden worktable or surround it with wood for that farmhouse effect. It would also look good with antique-looking metal all around it. You can store it in a corner or another small pocket of your garage so it blends in with other pieces of metal, while close inspection will reveal it's much more than that.

Designer Advice:

You’ve got to find the right way to accentuate the yellow color on this one. Store it next to all your yellow tools, or bring out its striking design by keeping it next to grey and black objects. The warmth of the yellow against the dullness of garage colors can further be highlighted by keeping a bright-colored plant or flowers nearby.

Buying Guide

Choosing heavy-duty garage bar stools that stand up to the test of time and the rigors of everyday chores can sometimes be a challenge. Not only do you have to find something comfortable but that also resistant to the abuse that sometimes occurs in a busy garage. It must be able to handle tools landing on it, potential fall hazards, and frequent cleaning from spills. With that in mind, we've put together this buying guide to help inspire your selections.

Are you looking for something with a brand logo? Do the garage bar stools you have in mind feature faux leather cushion seats and metal frames? Will you be using these at a work table or next to vehicles? Answering these questions, among many others, will help you pick the best garage bar stools. There are many styles and features including:

  • Wheels if you want to roll from one task to the next
  • Backrests for those who are working on long-term projects
  • Swivel base to help spin from one job to the next
  • Footrests for extra comfort

Under most circumstances, these bar stools feature a leather or faux leather seat coverings. You’ll also typically find a sturdy metal base that’s lightweight and easy to move around. Not only will these materials handle the rigors a typical garage will put them through, but they’ll also last for years. Garage bar stools have a reputation for being easy to clean because of their smooth surfaces and lack of intricate details. Because you’ll be working in a busy garage, selecting garage bar stools featuring top quality materials is essential.

For those who would like to incorporate garage bar stools into their décor, this is easy to pull off. Because they feature black seat cushions, polished metal bases, and brand logos, you can incorporate them into “man caves,” entertainment rooms, and game rooms. Their contemporary designs lend themselves well when in combination with red, green, and yellow accents. Introduce dark wood furniture and other details to help bring the room together.

Under most circumstances, a standard bar stool measures between 29 and 32 inches from the seat to the floor. Therefore, they should pair with a table or bar heights between 41 to 43 inches. It isn't uncommon to find extra tall bar stools measuring between 33 and 36 inches from the seat to the floor.

Garage bar stools are easy to maintain because of their construction. However, when working in a busy garage, they should experience frequent cleaning. You’ll find this is especially true if you have grease on your hands frequently. Use heavy-duty degreasers to clean off the seat and metal finishes. Then, complete a follow-up cleaning with a spray cleaner to remove any left-over residue. If you’re working with a genuine leather seat, use a leather cleaner and not a degreaser or spray cleaner. Otherwise, you’ll ruin the finish, and it will begin cracking.
