This corner is heaven. Is the floor concrete? What material are the white walls?

Thanks! The owners were very happy with the room. Yes, the floor is acid-stained concrete. The walls are just normal 1/2" drywall, painted white. One of the ideas behind the island in the craft room is that especially messy projects can be done there, where cleanup is easy on the stainless steel top. Even if we had put some sort of super durable material on the walls (which would have raised costs too), paint splashes and messy fingers could still have stained it, or we would have had to make all of the walls a darker color, drastically changing (and maybe ruining) the aesthetic of the space. so crafts can be done at the built-in desks, but messy tasks like finger painting should be done at the island.

Thank you for not only sharing your work, but sharing the thought process behind decisions. Love this corner - desk tops relate to the island legs, coordinating stainless elements - just a wonderful design.

I love everything about it. Light filled, durable surfaces, room to spread out over multiple workstations, great storage, the dark band of shelving to unify the space. Fabulous.
