Parts for Restaurant Bar Stools
Bar stools are an important part of how a restaurant looks. They are one of the first things guests will notice when they go to sit down at the bar or at a table.
However, bar stools can be expensive to replace as they get old and worn. To keep bar stools looking great, the best investment may be replacement pieces instead of an entirely new bar stool.
One simple way to upgrade Restaurant Bar Stools is to add or exchange the bar stools’ seat covers. Seat covers can be easily installed by just slipping them over the seat of the bar stool. Seat covers can serve three main purposes: comfort, style, and branding.
Seat covers offer a little bit more padding for patrons, subtly encouraging them to relax and spend more time at the bar. Seat covers can also add a little extra decor to your seating which helps to tie the look of the room together. Seat covers can also have a company logo on them, serving as free advertising for your brand.
Nothing is worse than sitting at a bar, enjoying a drink or a meal, on a swiveling bar stool that is unsteady, squeaky, or unusable. A swiveling bar stool promotes a social atmosphere, but an unsteady or unusable swivel can detract from a guest’s experience in your restaurant.
Thankfully, there’s a very simple fix. You do not need to buy a whole new bar stool. You only need to replace the swivel of the bar stool.
Swivels are available for any style or size of a bar stool. They can be purchased as a single item, or as part of a replacement bar stool plan. A new swivel can transform a useless bar stool and greatly improve a guest’s experience.
Many restaurant owners find that the upholstery of a bar stool is often the part of a bar stool that is damaged first. Damaged upholstery makes bar stools look uncomfortable and unpleasant to use, but it does not mean that they cannot be salvaged. A bar stool can simply be reupholstered and returned to its former glory.
Re-upholstery services will re-pad a seat with foam and recover the seat with vinyl. Upholstery vinyl is the ideal cover for a bar stool. It is comfortable, stain resistant, sturdy, and comes in a huge variety of colors.
Sometimes, the frames of bar stools fail before the rest of the bar stool. Rather than replacing the entire bar stool, you can easily upgrade your bar stools by replacing the frame.
Both metal and wooden bar stool frames can be easily replaced, saving you time and money. Frame replacements come in a myriad of different styles, sizes, and shapes. Additionally, replacement frames may come with replacement swivels, which will give your bar stools an additional upgrade.
No matter what shape your bar stools are currently in, there’s probably a way that replacement parts or re-upholstery can help make your bar stools more comfortable, good-looking, and functional.
