Open Style Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, the type of material which are getting used for kitchen countertops were a whole 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 are built in the first 1900’s and the original nailed down countertop was still being in place. I have seen tops which had several layers of vinyl and after that someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, together with the layers of vinyl. Each home owner had added the modern and finest product which had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it is almost work simply to maintain all of the new or recycled goods that are getting used to fabricate countertops, especially since the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really started to pick-up steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but they are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring has become available on the market for some time now but have you any idea that you can purchase bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to produce their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is an additional material that is certainly now being when combined a resin to generate, what I think, is one of the prettiest and most novel countertops in many years.
