Mid Century Kitchen Cabinet | A century ago, the types of materials which were getting used for kitchen countertops were a complete different ball game from precisely what is getting used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a vintage countertop from homes which were integrated the first 1900’s and also the original nailed down countertop was still set up. I have seen tops which had several layers of vinyl and then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, on top of the layers of vinyl. Each new house owner had added the latest and finest product which had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it is almost work just to keep up with each of the new and or recycled goods that are getting used to manufacture countertops, especially since the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really started to get steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but you are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring has been available for quite a while now but are you aware that you can get bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to generate their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is the one other material which is now being combined with a resin to generate, what I think, is amongst the prettiest and a lot novel countertops in numerous years.
