French Blue Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, the type of material which are used for kitchen countertops were a complete different ball game from what is used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a vintage countertop from homes which are built-in the early 1900’s along with the original nailed down countertop was still available. I have seen tops which in fact had several layers of vinyl and after that someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, along with the layers of vinyl. Each new home owner had added the most recent and best product which in fact had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it can be almost work in order to get caught up with all the new as well as recycled items that are used to fabricate countertops, especially because the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really began to pick-up steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but they are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring may be available for quite a while now but have you any idea that you can purchase bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to create their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is another material that’s now being mixed with a resin to generate, what I think, is probably the prettiest and quite a few novel countertops in numerous years.
