Installing furniture takes a lot of time and effort, in addition to being an expensive affair. In many places and occasions, the seating needs are most often temporary, often spanning just hours. It becomes highly impractical to buy permanent fixtures and fittings just for a few hours in these situations. Moreover, rarely occurring backyard events like birthday parties or casual get-togethers do not need permanent furniture in the backyard. Foldable stools are the perfect solution for the seating needs of these short-time temporary events because they are incredibly compact and inexpensive. Their small size and foldability make them easily portable.
Choosing the correct seating radius
The first consideration while buying foldable stools is their seating radius. When sitting on a stool, the primary factor is comfort. Buying chairs of a small radius hurts the bottom and makes sitting on the stool for more prolonged periods unbearable. Moreover, sitting on a small stool for more extended periods affect the spine and may cause back pain and lower body pains. When the correct size is ensured, it results both in comfort and healthy sitting. Hence, one must buy a stool that has a seating area as per their comfort and convenience.
Considering load capacity
The next most important consideration is the load capacity. Load capacity refers to the maximum weight a foldable stool can comfortably carry. When the load capacity is exceeded, the stool may break, or the legs may become irreversibly damaged. Although there are many inexpensive foldable stools in the market, these may not have sufficient load capacity to carry heavy loads. Plastic stools are ideal for children and toddlers because they have a maximum load capacity of 150 lbs. For adults, steel stools are recommended since their load capacity goes up to 300 lbs.
Padded vs. non-padded stools
Foldable stools are available in padded and non-padded varieties. Stool padding refers to the cushion layer attached to the top of the sitting piece for extra comfort. Although non-padded stools can be used for sitting for a short while, they can become uncomfortable to sit on because their surface is hard. Moreover, non-padded stools affect the seating posture, making it unhealthy for the back. Even though padded stools are slightly more expensive than the non-padded varieties, they provide comfort and ensure proper seating posture.
Height adjustable vs. non-adjustable stools
While most of the foldable stools come in fixed heights, some varieties come with a lever with which the stool height can be adjusted. People have varying heights. Hence it is illogical to expect that everyone will be satisfied and comfortable with a standard stool height. There is no one size fits all stool. Therefore, height-adjustable stools are ideal stools since people can adjust the stool suitable to their height.
