Aluminum bar stools offer a unique look and feel, with their sleek, modern style, and have the added functionality of being suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Endless variations exist in regard to size, style, functionality, finish, and price range. A Bar stool can be either tall or short, cushioned or non-cushioned, flat-backed or no back, with or without foot rests and arm rests, swiveling or no swivel, and either secured to the floor or loose.

Aluminum bar stools come in all kinds of shapes and sizes and can be generally categorized by height. Typical height requirements range from 18 to 36 inches, depending on where the stool is going to be used. A good rule of thumb is to allow for 9 to 13 inches between the stool’s top and top of the counter/surface to be used. The amount of space needed between bar stools varies, but should be somewhere between 21 and 24 inches.  Tend to opt for more space between stools, not less, when they are swivel type bar stools.

Price ranges vary according to material, the manufacturing, and the brand name. Custom options will always cost more, but there is certainly a price range to fit any budget. A single “vanity” stool purchased at your local department store can be priced as low as 30 dollars. An aluminum bar stool with leather padding and arm and foot rests can cost anywhere from 100 dollars each to 500 dollars each, or more. With all of the custom options available from most manufacturers, the sky really is the limit. Some companies will even use custom fabrics provided by the customer and build to size, or include quality bar stool covers as well.
