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 Interior 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.

March 8, 2014
See the gray counter top and side wall. It creates a tiny little extra blockage. A tiny little more L. This can't be more than 6-12", past the width of the cabinets. We can't achieve this much or....
bulldogkw added this to Furniture + Decorative: FINAL
