"Nicer" metal bar stools typically have all-welded frames. The only bolts you may see hold the seat to the swivel mechanism and there may be a few screws holding the seat pad to the metal frame. This type of construction is far more sturdy than "RTA" stools.
If your budget allows you. try to upgrade from the RTA bar stools to welded construction. They will last longer. be safer for you and your family. AND should allow you the ability to customize the height. fabric. and finish you want.
Metal bar stools which are welded at all joints are far less prone to these problems. In addition. many companies have dozens of finishes. fabrics. and options available for a given style. For example. you may like a stool that is shown on our retail floor as a stationary (non swivel) stool with arms. In many cases you can custom order the same style as a swivel armless. swivel with arms. stationary without arms. or even a backless.
Everyday use will loosen bolts over time resulting in a potentially dangerous situation if you do not periodically check the tightness of all the bolts. Even worse. many RTA stools use thin-walled metal with no additional support for the bolt`s threads to grasp. I have seen hundreds of these lower quality stools that will easily strip threads simply by being assembled. Additionally. lower priced stools are typically sold one way: one color. one fabric. no options.
Metal or Wood? This is a good question. If you ask 10 retailers. you`ll get 10 responses. In my opinion. wood bar stools are prone to problems not encountered with welded metal bar stools. Due to the soft nature of wood (when compared to steel). screws and joints tend to come loose over time- especially wood with arms. The constant outward stress on the arms can loosen the attachment points resulting in a loose feel. Legs and stretchers (horizontal support bars) can also become loose over time resulting in an unstable and potentially dangerous bar stool. Still. there are decorating situations in which only wood will work.
