But at the same time, if you want to focus on the front, you can make it from an unusual material. For example, coarse grinding of wood, concrete, stone, iron, or stainless steel. In a word, in this issue before you open up infinite possibilities.
Stone countertop racks very practical and notless spectacular. Stone can choose natural and artificial. In any case, such a rack would be long. Stone is not fastidious in the care, natural stone has a caveat - you need to remove as much as possible to quickly rack up spillage, so it does not penetrate deep into the stone and did not spoil the color. But on the bar made of quartz agglomerate better not to put very hot food, as it can form a crack.
Racks made of wood are too long,but require mandatory water-repellent, because the main enemy of wood - moisture and bugs. Keep these two factors do not come into contact with your desk. Regularly Inspect wooden rack for damage, as well as annual update moisture repellent coating.

You can set the number of spots, a fewlamps on a long cord, a large chandelier. The main thing is that the light source does not interfere with the guests sit at the counter and are not afraid to catch hold of her head.
In addition to overhead lighting above the counter, there is anotherReception is to focus on the rack - diode lamp tabletop pot. But do not get carried away with plenty of lighting under the worktop to your bar did not like the bar at a nightclub (of course, if it is not the task).
