Kitchen Cabinets Crown Molding Ideas | A century ago, the types of materials that have been getting used for kitchen countertops were an entire different ball game from what is getting used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a classic countertop from homes that have been integrated the first 1900’s and also 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 new home owner had added the newest as well as product which in fact had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it really is almost work only to keep up with all of the new or recycled goods that are getting used to manufacture countertops, especially because the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really started to pick up steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but they’re now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring continues to be available for some time now but did you know that you can buy 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 is now being when combined a resin to make, what I think, is probably the prettiest and many novel countertops in lots of years.
