1940's Cottage Kitchen Makeover

We just gave this cute 1940's era cottage kitchen a facelift by:
1. Refacing the existing cabinetry with a fresh coat of bright white paint.
2. Installing a new white subway tile backsplash with gray ribbon tile trim.
3. Installing a new wall-mounted sink faucet and all new cabinet knobs and pulls.
4. Building a custom cabinet to extend the cabinetry all the way to the end of the kitchen (the cabinet was made to look exactly like the existing cabinets) and installing a custom-fitted butcher block countertop for this cabinet.
5. Painting the walls in a gorgeous shade of ocean blue.
6. Upgrading and adding electrical outlets to allow for more countertop appliances.

what kind of countertop is this, and what do you call it when the sink is installed this way?

Hi, the countertop is Corian. The sink is actually all part of the same countertop piece, just with a white finish which gives it the appearance of an undermount sink.
