We determine the layout

Select it, taking into account the kitchen area, as well as the overall style. for example, semicircular bars of wood is not in written in hi-tech style. If you choose a hybrid drain, where on one side there is a normal table, locate the required table or accurate drawing.

Here, the assembly model classic whole form. This option is not the most difficult and quite common, that is why the choice fell on him.

Having defined the design now need to prepare an accurate sketch. It reflects all dimensions in three dimensions, optional, an indication of the materials. Hold the classical height 1,1 meter.

Shopping: buy materials

With varnish creates a smooth decorative coating wood

We have chosen a bar counter in the kitchen with his hands need the following materials:

  • Sheet plywood and particleboard
  • Wooden beam 50 × 100 mm
  • Eaves 25 × 100 mm
  • Plinth for decorating
  • Screws and nails are different
  • Lacquer on wood
  • Morilka

Prepare frame

Here, we need lumber and nails no more than 80mm. Of timber cut from drawings bearing construction elements and connect them with nails. Two things are important: different parts must fit tightly as possible to each other and at the same level. No curvature is unacceptable.

To get the bars add guides. We do them purchased from boards. We have a guiding vertically, align them to the size of. Make mistakes at this stage, you run the risk of "bend vertebrae" of the future stand. It is not necessary to do everything by eye, use level, if possible - laser.

Impose first countertop

After carcass proceed to create flooring. To do this, use sheets of plywood, which neatly nailed to the base - do not overdo it, so as not to break the plywood.

Then, MDF prepare lower countertop. by the way, this step is simplified, if the bar is made from the countertop, which was purchased earlier. Thereafter, connect the frame and the lower part of the table top by means of small screws. Inside the structure we divide the space into several separate recesses using veneers.

The upper worktop and the cladding

Our bar counter in the kitchen with his hands almost completed. The first step is preparing the upper part of the table top from the same fiberboard. It is important to follow the maximum tight fastening between the parts. When she is ready, stand sheathed with plywood sheets.

Create a designer decor

Now light, but a protracted stage. Cover rack stain, carefully each element, not missing a single millimeter. After drying, apply varnish.

At the finish line

Consuming an array of works completed, but this does not mean, that the bar itself is ready for use. That our work is not "drowned" in the kitchen, we focus our stand.

Remember, what else it is an essential attribute of the bar? That's right - this is a special light. Above the bar is always a dot placed lighting elements. Specifically, you can buy them, but it is not necessary - it is necessary to think about holding power, as it is done before, like any furniture will be in the room. Use halogen lamps and extension cords (they are easy to hide), to highlight the rack.

If possible, then hang on the rack mounted lamps, like the green, that hang in every billiard. And instead of a conventional switch using dimmers, which will allow you to pick up any light at any situation. And generally it is better to place the bar next to the outlets, that there were no problems with electricity.

Through energy bridge independently and specifically for rack, not necessarily break down the walls. If the kitchen has an open output wiring system, then use a flexible tube camouflage, to hold the cords to the rack.

finish the job

stand ready, It remains to add the necessary equipment. Let's start with high chairs. Wooden bars combined with chairs without backs with the effect of rubbing.
