This countertop was my biggest challenge - We made this in Corian and Caesarstone with a free hanging table part!

Countertop edge - Hi, how thick are the edges of the countertop here? And what size slab, 2cm or 3cm?

Did you use a bullnose or trim where the backsplash meets the window? - I can't exactly tell in the picture, but it seems like the window doesn't have a trim/moulding. Our window does not have one, rather the wall just continues back a little for a window inset (not sure how to describe it). When the backsplash meets the edge, did you use a bullnose tile, metal trim, or neither? Thank you!

Yes, that partially answers me question, thank you! I was also hoping to find out what it looked like when the tile meets and makes a corner with the left and right side walls inside the window. Where the tile and window wall joins and makes a corner, is it just a regular piece of tile or tile pieces with a bullnose/edged on one side? Thanks for your help! Backsplash is our last step!

Oh got it- here is a pic. We just used the regular tiles as they were, we didn't do anything to them. Great that you are almost there!

Great use of glass subway tile! I love how you mixed the two colors. If you like this look you could get a similar look by browsing our selection of glass subway tile: www.subwaytileoutlet.com

Love the island. We are considering the white caesarstone or similar manmade top. However we heard its hard to keep the white clean and were worried about putting hot pots etc on it because we also rent out the house. I'd love to hear from you on those two items. Thanks!

Hi there, yes I echo the other response. We have had no problem with ours. We actually have never put anything super hot on it, I guess we are cautious with that since we had heard the same thing. As far as cleaning, we do get a few tiny little hair size scratches on it from time to time, but they come right off with a bit of clorox. Our counters still look just as beautiful as when we got them installed though, we love them!

Love your remodel. My husband and I are in Dallas, and we're having a hard time finding someone to help us design and remodel our kitchen. May I ask who helped you with design and did your construction?

thanks! sure, we have a great architect (my brother-in-law) who helped us with the drawings. We had a closed-in space for the kitchen, and we showed him pictures of different elements we wanted to include, different ideas we had, and put it together as far as overall layout. In regards to the materials, my husband and I picked it all out. Construction wise we didn't have a great experience with our contractor so we cannot recommend there! Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions or would like the architect name.
