Kitchen Cabinet Glass Door | A century ago, materials that were being utilized for kitchen countertops were a complete different ball game from what’s being utilized today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a vintage countertop from homes that were built-in earlier 1900’s and the original nailed down countertop was still available. I have seen tops that have several layers of vinyl and then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, along with the layers of vinyl. Each new house owner had added the modern and finest product that have been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it is almost work in order to keep up with all the new and or recycled goods that are being utilized to manufacture countertops, especially since the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really begun to pick up steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but you are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring may be out on the market for a while now but are you aware that you can purchase bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to make their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is the one other material that is certainly now being blended with a resin to create, what I think, is probably the prettiest and quite a few novel countertops in many years.
