Marble countertops provide an additional contrast against the dark perimeter cabinetry, while Blizzard White quartz surfaces from Caesarstone wrap the two islands, creating a waterfall efect.

Costa Esmaralda granite countertops are featured along the perimeter and in the main portion of the island. On each end of the island, the designers included two raised butcher block countertops in cherry so that two chefs can work in the kitchen.
