I have no idea, I'm sorry. I do know it was purchased by the customer through Treehouse and I believe it is Silestone.

I know it was purchased on Overstock.com for soemwhere between $600 and $900. It is a standard 36" wide sink.

I never would have thought to look on Overstock for sinks. Great idea. Thanks for your response.

I don't have exact measurements, but given that the upper cabinets are 39" cabinets (and would typically be a few inches off an 8' ceiling), it looks like this is a 9' - 10' ceiling.

The cooktop on the island is typically 30" wide. You can add about that much to each side, so I would say it is 90" to 120" wide. The depth is typically 24", but in this case you have a 4" wall and a 10" overhang - so a total depth of 38".

I hope that helps.

I recently had my first experience with Ikea kitchens. I used them in a very low-budget new house. They were assembled and installed by a non-carpenter friend of the owner. Assembly and installation was very quick and easy and I certainly wouldn't trust it an expensive contractor to do it proprly. No silly troublesome software; just took cabinet sizes off the plans. Order by phone took fifteen minutes as Ikea stores are hours away. Delivery took almost three weeks delivered to our door and unloaded for $59. There were a few minor mistakes, which were corrected by the trucking company. One cabinet was out of stock and it has been a nightmare. I ordered .the cabinet shell so that we could complete the layout and am still trying to order the last drawer. We refaced all of the cabinets using elegant 3/4" Bamboo plywood (the cheap fronts were used as patterns.) We used shiny black Phenolic resin plywood for our countertops. (Both items available from Anderson Plywood) The cabinets are set on 2 x 4 bases faced with the black countertop material rather than the awkward legs and ugly high base. We sealed all raw edges and replaced the sink bottom with MDO plywood for maximum moisture resistance. Cost of the Ikea cabinets (9 with 15 drawers and lift up doors on wall cabinets) was just over $2,000. The plywood for the fronts, back of the island and countertops cost another $1600 including $400 shipping. I am a semi-retired elderly architect who directed the unskilled installer. Even with custom fronts, alignment of the fronts is a breeze. Everything is soft close with lots of nice features; quality is fabulous for this price level. Now for the bad:

Except for the knowledgeable lady who took the order, all of the Ikea personel have been uninformed dolts. They rarely ever answer the phone and then don't know the answer and transfer you where you wait for an hour to reach nothing or another uninformed agent. They never respond to emails either. Consequently, you either have to travel hundreds of miles to their store or figure it out on your own.
