Installing Bar Moldings

Bar MoldingsIf you have decided that you are going to build a bar in your home so you can save money by not going out every weekend, you are making a great choice. Home bars were extremely popular in the 1970s, then the popularity seemed to dwindle after a while. With the high cost of going out these days, home bars are once again becoming extremely popular, and many people are adding home bars to their rec rooms or other parts of their homes.

It is one thing to build a home bar, but it is another to have a home bar that looks like any bar at any night club. To achieve this you need to use the right building materials, including bar moldings, which is not only going to complete the look of the bar, but will also provide a comfortable arm rest for you and your guests. Adding bar rail is actually quite easy, and this simple step will give you that finishing touch you need. Here are some tips that will make installing bar molding a fairly simple job for anyone:

• Find the right molding – The first step to installing bar molding is to find the right molding. After all, you want to make sure that it is going to enhance the bar, and not just be something extra that is sitting there. You can find all of the bar molding you need at Rino's Woodworking, where you can have it cut to the exact lengths you need for any bar project.

• Get the surface ready – Once you have your molding, you need to get the bar surface ready. You may need to sand down the areas where you are going to attach the bar molding so the two fit together nicely and give you an even surface.

• Get your hammer and nails ready – When you have the surface prepared, all you need to do is take a hammer and some nails, and attach the bar molding to the bar. Make sure that you use a level while you are doing this so that the bar rail is perfectly straight. If you are going to any job, including installing bar rail, you may as well make sure you do it right the first time.

• Paint or stain – Your bar rail is now installed, and all you have left to do is paint or stain the bar to complete it. Most bars tend to look a lot better if they are stained rather than painted, but then again, it really depends on how you intend to decorate the rest of the room.

When you are trying to create a home bar, you need to have a lovely bar rail to complete the job. Bar molding is available in many different types of wood, and you will find a great selection at Rino's Woodworking in Willoughby, Ohio. You can have your bar molding custom made in a large variety of lengths, so you can be as creative as you want when it comes to designing your own home bar.
