Building the Bar
Build bar from one row of lower kitchen cabinets.
Hang cabinets at highest point of floor.
Install countertop of wood, granite, quartz, bamboo, concrete, even recycled glass.
Match finish to existing finish or choose contrasting or companion finish.
The longer the countertop, the more serving space.
To determine high point of floor, run level beam across wall three inches up and measure down to floor every ten or twelve inches.
Use shims to fill low spots.
For a standing only bar, make the overhang 6 to 9 inches; for bar stools the overhang should be 12 inches.
