But, indeed, mini bar is a nice addition, where you can enjoy with your friends and prepare delicious drinks. In this case, there are some rules; you should apply when it comes to construction.
Make sure that your counter top is made of materials that are water resistant and can be easily cleaned since spills are sure to happen in your mini bar.
