The stainless steel bar top is custom. It is over 14' long and includes an opening for the BGE and a built in ice bin for cooling your drinks. Thanks for asking!

The stainless does get hot with direct sun. Indirect heat is not much of an issue. This backyard faces northeast and does not have much of an issue most of the day. Thanks for asking!

Thanks. I'm wondering how they would do on the East Coast? During winters? Would they rust? I'm looking to invite some stainless onto my deck design to match my home. Most of the deck is all pressure treated wood, but my home is modern w/ a galvanized steel roof so I want to tie that into the deck.

So I have a bar top to do, as well as a BBQ Island and potentially a table that I'd like to make the tops Stainless. Thoughts? Appreciate any help...

Also, the house is a Passive Solar design, so the Sun beats on the deck all day/night. I am going to do some 'sail shades' at some point to cover the entire deck.

These are pretty cool. They are $142 and are 30" tall. It's called the Tonic bar stool. You can find it here.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. Accent with steel for a modern look. Lots of outdoor kitchens use stone and wood (which can be beautiful), but modern spaces cry out for something sleeker. Stainless steel counters are a great fit, and galvanized steel Tolix stools bring a little industrial cool.
