Modern Black Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, the types of materials that have been getting used for kitchen countertops were an entire different ball game from what exactly is getting used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a vintage countertop from homes that have been built-in the first 1900’s and the original nailed down countertop had been set up. I have seen tops that 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 modern and finest product that had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it is almost work simply to keep up with all of the new or recycled goods that are getting 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 has been available on the market for some time 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 create their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is an additional material that is certainly now being when combined a resin to create, what I think, is one of the prettiest and most novel countertops in many years.
