Bar Counter Designs for Restaurants

Owning a restaurant business has never been more difficult. With the economy in a state of the unknown, people are not eating out as much or patronising their local taverns. Restaurant and bar owners are looking for ways to bring in new business and remodelling their establishments during this down time seems to be a growing trend. Bar tops and counters give a bar its personality and distinction, but they require a large degree of functionality to accommodate both patrons and bartenders.

"S"-Curved Concrete Bar Top

A concrete bar top is not only a beautiful, durable material for a bar top, it can be customised to whatever a restaurant owner wants. It can even be coloured with special dyes and stains that give the bar top a unique look that everyone who enters will remember. Constructing the bar counter in an "S"-curve style provides additional seating along the bar while creating an interesting design.

Square Quartz Bar Tops

Unlike granite countertops, quartz countertops are man made into large slabs and contoured to the specifications of the restaurant owner. They are sealed together with strong silicone sealant. This countertop gives the look of granite, without the granite price, and with no sealing necessary to keep the quartz in good condition. The square allows for seating all around the bar and will seat quite a few people in a small space.

"C"-Shaped Lighted Corian Bar Top

A "C" shape allows for a conversational bar while allowing the bartender easy access to the entire bar within a small space. This also allows for a large amount of seating in a fairly small area and is a great design for bar/dining room combinations in restaurants.

Corian countertops are made of moulded plastic and can be poured seamlessly. Since they use a clear drying plastic component, the countertops can allow light to transfer through them, creating a funky and cool countertop when coupled with different coloured lights from underneath. These types of countertops are no more expensive than granite, but they do get beat up over time as they are made primarily of plastic.
