Flush Inset Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, the type of material that were used for kitchen countertops were a whole different ball game from precisely what is used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many an old countertop from homes that were internal early 1900’s along with the original nailed down countertop was still being set up. I have seen tops which in fact had several layers of vinyl after which someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, on top of the layers of vinyl. Each home owner had added the modern and best product which in fact had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it is almost work only to get caught up with each of the new and even recycled items that are used to produce countertops, especially considering that the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really begun to get steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass however they are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring continues to be out on the market for a while now but are you aware that you can buy bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to make their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is yet another material that is now being combined with a resin to produce, what I think, is probably the prettiest and most novel countertops in several years.
