I have a kitchen lay that is a wall of appliances with a sink base as the only cabinet. The layout will from left to right; washer; front loading, dryer, sink, dishwasher and small upright freezer. The dishwasher will be at angle and the wall behind has both a double angle and a recess ending with a stove.All of these appliances fit snog and will need to have access for repairs in the future. I have a contracted plumber/electrician who will route all water and electrical lines which will be neater than they are currently. My question "How do I tie all of appliances and create a counter top without cabinets in between" there will be 4 small spacers I would like to use tile/ 3x3 ceramic tie or 12x12 (or slightly small) granite tile on the counter. What kind of surface should I use as a base. I do have upper cabinets and open stainless shelving and small island for storage. This kitchen is next to a finished bathroom so the plumbing will have remain along this wall. This a 2nd floor kitchen of a 3 floor row brick house(1897).
