While not quite a finishing option, custom stainless steel countertops also offer the opportunity to have a fully integrated sink created in your counter. With this custom option, the sink and counter are all one piece and there‘s no intelligible seam between the counter and sink. Of course, this is a costlier option.
If you are simply installing a new top on your island, or a small section of your kitchen, it is possible to do it yourself. There are many videos online about the steps involved. Once you have measured and planned your project accurately, you will need to work with your local metal fabrication shop to have the top made and wrapped over your wooden base.
A backsplash window is a really great feature, especially for small kitchens that can’t afford to sacrifice any storage space in favor of a source of natural light. The backsplash windows bring light exactly where needed and in addition to that they also give the space an unexpectedly fresh and open look.

The compromise is well worth it, considering how amazing the view of the lake is.
