Modern Kitchen Cabinets Colors | A century ago, the types of materials which were getting used for kitchen countertops were an entire different ball game from what’s getting used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a classic countertop from homes which were built in early 1900’s along with the original nailed down countertop was still in place. I have seen tops which in fact had several layers of vinyl then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, in addition to the layers of vinyl. Each home owner had added the most recent and best product which in fact had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it’s almost work only to get caught up with each of the new and even recycled goods that are getting used to produce countertops, especially considering that the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really did start to get steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but they’re now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring continues to be available for quite a while now but have you any idea that you can get bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to make their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is another material that is now being blended with a resin to create, what I think, is probably the prettiest and many novel countertops in lots of years.
