Here are a few pictures of another client project. Although not yet ready for prime time, I wanted to highlight the incredible glass countertop chosen for the island. First the before:
The basic white, builder-grade cabinetry was not holding up well with an active family. Among the many functional and aesthetic challenges in this kitchen design were the under-scale island and the giant double soffit.
A space this large benefits from a focal point, and the island was the natural choice. The client was not enamored with the idea of a granite slab, and was very intrigued by pictures seen at ThinkGlass, particularly this one:
This Canadian company is a leader in glass countertop production, and their unique designs offer something for the adventurous kitchen client looking beyond granite, marble or solid surface countertops. After many back-and-forth discussions on shapes, colors and designs, and the twelve week lead time, the slab arrived and was installed.
I think the glass top adds tremendous drama to the new kitchen. Looking forward to seeing how great the finished kitchen will look once the tile and paint are complete!
