Metal bar stools are one of the best types of bar stools to use for restaurant bar stools.  Metal bar stools are strong, durable, and able to last under the abuse of a restaurant, cafe, or diner.  When looking for a metal bar stool, one thing to consider is the type of metal and the gauge of the metal.  Steel is a great all around metal for metal bar stools.  Steel framed bar stools need to have the steel finished in some way.  The two most popular ways to finish the steel in a bar stool frame is to either chrome plate the steel or powder coat the steel.  Powder coating allows the frame to come in any color under the sun.  Chrome plating adds a durable metal finish comprised of Nickel and ingredients.  If you are looking to keep your bar stools outdoors, you might want to shy away from steel metal bar stools.  If you are going to put the bar stools outdoors, you should consider aluminum bar stools or plastic bar stools.  Steel bar stools and even chrome plated steel bar stools can rust when exposed to the elements.  If you are interested in customizing your metal bar stools, you can add a logo and turn them into a logo bar stool.  Logo bar stools can also be used as counter stools.
