Making a traditional bar with Amish furniture

by Tom Grimes

After a long day at work or out in the sun, it's good to have a place in one's home where it's possible to relax and enjoy the hours of the evening. Bars are often places for conversation between friends or family, and having one in the house can function as a centerpiece for these gatherings.

Bars vary greatly in size, detail and tone, so it's important to consider every aspect when designing one. ModernBarDesign.com lists four common kinds of home bars - the straight type, back, L type wet bar and corner.

The straight type is usually located at the end of a room, with the bar parallel to one of the walls, while the back bar imitates this design but drinks are stored in bookshelf-fashion.

The L type wet bar has one end of the bar dedicated to cleaning and washing. The corner bar is the most economic, as it is just a cabinet with bottles in it.

An Amish made straight bar will add dignity and substance to any space, and is best accompanied by other pieces of Amish furniture, such as barstools and a wine rack. These items will show refinement and taste, and their durability will guarantee a lifetime of memories. ADNFCR-3308-ID-19897635-ADNFCR
