The raised counter is made of Zinc - hope this helps with your project.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jason Ball Interiors, LLC added this to Obsessed With Gray in the Kitchen
This contemporary kitchen is really about the beautiful wood cabinetry and the striking shape of the raised-bar countertop. Even with the cold grayness of the concrete, the counter stills feels like it belongs as a cohesive part of the overall aesthetic. It plays an important role in creating structure around the island, while tying the rest of the room to the kitchen by carrying the flooring materials (and color) through the space.
Jennifer Ott Design added this to Have Your Open Kitchen and Close It Off Too
Raise Your IslandIf it's not so much kids or guests circulating into your kitchen space that bothers you, but more a need to disguise meal-prep messes, try raising the far end of your island. It will give visitors a nice place to perch at while you work at the sink or cooktop, too.

I like that the bar is raised so I could use the part we cut down and make an island for food prep and rolling pins, etc. without being messy to the open area. I have little counter space. Super annoying.
