Depends upon your abilities, what you want & the size needed
Some pre-built bars look very nice, but can be expensive
Cheaper ones look.....cheap
Home made bar can look very nice & be custom built to the size/area
But if your abilities are not up to the task..........
we can custom build it in, but i am leaning towards purchasing one just as you said, they look nicer. i have roughly about 7ft to play with. i was hoping a few would have some advice having heard from both sides. i hate to spend the money later to find i should have just built one myself. also what is the best counter type to put on. i'm leaning towards quartz, not into granite for counters, and not favored towards tile? just looking to not regret this later after money spent. thx for the insight
