Before You Build an Outdoor Bar

Posted by Dan Jolly on Sep 10, 2015 3:41:00 PM

Having a built in outdoor bar at your home is truly a great thing. They’re usually built under the patio awning staying cool in its pleasant shade. They are often connected to a grill and have a built in refrigerator near by. Shade, warm food and cool drinks all within reach from the comfort of your very own backyard. That is a recipe for a good day. Now, if your home already has a built-in bar, then unfortunately the following advice may be too late for you. That’s because homebuilders have a bad habit of building outdoor bars without giving much thought into the height of a standard outdoor barstool. Maybe you already noticed this and how changeling it is to find a patio barstool for your built-in bar? The good news for you is that we already authored a piece about measuring your custom built-in bar for outdoor barstools. Give that a read and good luck to you. For those who are on the eve of building their very own outdoor bar, please read the following before proceeding.
