Thank you! It was subway glass tile in two different gray colors, though I don't have the actual color references. I suggest ordering multiple samples first so that you can figure out what color combo will work!

Yes, every piece of counter space is flush with the cabinets, even the butcher's block in the back is flush with the drawer below it. Thanks!

Hi, yes...we used the 1/2" thickness, but had the edges built to 3".

How high is the countertop on the island? We are putting in the 3 inch quartz but it will make our island 37 1/2" high. Wondering if that's too high?

Hi, the top cabinets are from Ikea, they are white acrylic with frosted glass. The bottom cabinets are not from Ikea, they were custome made by a carpenter locally.

How is the dining table supported? - I'm looking to create a similar tiered island, but am struggling to find an attractive way to support the quartz on the dining table portion of the counter.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The island is DeValdenbro's favorite feature in the new kitchen. Three levels (bar, cooking space and kitchen table) are all connected, and 3-inch counters flush with the cabinets create a seamless look. Overhead and under-counter cabinets provide plenty of storage, and the two seating areas have ample room for entertaining, cooking and eating. Top cabinets: IKEA white acrylic kitchen cabinets with frosted glass Bottom cabinets: Custom cabinets made with maple wood in a dark chocolate stainCabinetry hardware: IKEACountertops: Caesarstone in Pure White
