The size of this glass actually varies quite a bit. The windows on the right of the fireplace are an inch taller than ones on the left but you can't tell this when you are looking at it because of how we proportioned the glass.

This house is pretty old and the floor was a little out of level. To make everything line up at the mantle we increased the height of the right side relative to the left. All of the cabinet proportions stayed the same but the middle glass elements became larger.

Even up close you can't see this difference because of the geometry of the glass is the same in all the corners. Your eye lines up the symmetry here and can't see the differences in the middle. I will attach the drawing we built these with in case it is helpful.

The cabinets adjacent to fireplace are about 14 inches overall depth. The two columns flanking fireplace are about 2 inches in front of adjacent cabinets.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A half wall with a column separates this family room and dining area. It defines each while still preserving an open floor plan.
