The counter would hold two sinks, undermounted if possible, or molded into the countertop.

One of my favorite countertop materials is concrete with recycled glass. Look for a company that manufactures:

  • low-carbon cement,
  • uses 100% curbside recycled glass, and
  • natural aggregate.

It is durable, with lots of color and glass options. Have fun!
