Designing The Perfect Bar Counter

Designing the perfect bar counter is not difficult at all. There are a number of surface options to consider for designing your bar counter.

Bar Counter Materials

  • Laminates offer options like Formica and Wilsonart and are thin but tough counter materials that are glued to a wooden foundation. These options are durable, long-lasting and come in a variety of styles, colors and finishes.
  • Ceramic tile options are relatively inexpensive and offer durability and plenty of customization. More complex tile patterns require larger budgets. Tile counters are attractive and inexpensive in most situations, but are not always well suited for heavy use situations.
  • Solid surface bars such as Corian are a good choice for bar tops and they come in a constantly growing variety of colors and styles. Corian countertops feel smooth and rich but they tend to be more expensive than laminates.
  • Granite bar tops come in a number of patterns and colors and they are more intricate than Corian or laminates. Granite countertops fall on the higher end in terms of cost, ranging from $100 to $300 for a single square foot.
  • Stainless steel is a popular option for its durability and the modern look that it affords to your bar countertop. Steel is resistant both to heat and to scratches and it is nearly impossible to stain, making it a solid option for designing your bar countertop.
