I always wanted my own “bar & grill”! Now I know how to do it without having to start a whole restaurant!
The most interesting features of this set-up, found at __, are the stone front and the thick countertop.
Super Thick Counters
This counter has an edge that is at least 4″ thick. There are two ways to do that.
- One possibility is that this is a poured mixture of concrete and aggregate called “terrazzo”, which makes for a fine and durable counter surface. See more terrazzo at RemodelingGuy.net
- The other way to get this look is to use a surfacing material such as Silestone which is very similar to Corian. This material can be wrapped around a thicker base structure and made to look like a huge chunk of solid stone!
Manufactured stone has gotten so realistic that you can’t even tell in person if stone you’re looking at is made in a factory or carved out of a mountain. I guess that’s good news for the mountains!
Wherever it comes from, this looks great and I love the way it matches the low wall around the nearby garden area.
Let me ask you something. Would cooking here be a pain in real life? Wouldn’t the natural mess that surrounds a grill while cooking get all over the counter? It’s pretty, but is it practical?
