With the kids back at school and the night’s drawing in earlier, Leamington residents are encouraged to undertake a fresh challenge for the winter months: building your own bar! It may sound outlandish but many of you will be relieved to find that it's actually very simple. Moreover, it’s guaranteed to reap rich rewards. With Christmas coming up, there's never been a better time to start working on your own bar ahead of the season's festivities.
Traditional counters can be easily embellished so as to be transformed into bona fide bars. If you're big on booze you can equip yours with handy beer taps; alternatively, those with a taste for teppanyaki may wish to integrate their own grills. Infact, much of the beauty of the breakfast bar lies in its bespoke appeal and innate receptiveness to change and experimentation.
If you're working within a budget then there's more than a few simple ways to get a luxurious look at a discount. Adorn your counter top with LED lights for a cosmopolitan glow, or simply build on an existing structure with some cost-effective wooden strips or high gloss panels.
Building a bar also gives you a great excuse to get yourself some breakfast bar stools. Thankfully for Leamington residents, help is nearer to hand than you may have thought. Atlantic Shopping is a Birmingham based company, and the UK's leading retailer of kitchen stools. Located just a short drive away, they're open seven days a week and stock in excess of 25,000 items at any one time - meaning that finding the perfect perch for the pride of your home should not be a problem!
Like the breakfast bar, stools come in many shapes and sizes. From honeyed high gloss heroes to luxurious leather pieces, there's undoubtedly one for every home. Broadly speaking, they may be divided into two types: gas lift bar stools and fixed height options. While the former offers adjustability and (more often than not) 360-degree rotation, the latter enables immense stability.
Of course, different stools create different kinds of moods. If your home is defined by quite a rustic look then traditional wooden structures will do wonders for it, really adding to the old school aesthetics. Opulent real leather stools are geared towards those for whom the budget is no concern, and tend to lend an automatic helping of luxury to any kind of setting.
For an original challenge - and one that's certain to impress - have a go at building your own breakfast bar. Bringing a DIY challenge, new home treat and genuinely utile structure together in one slick package, it's a challenge that will satisfy your every inkling with grace and sophistication.
