Pictures Of Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, the types of materials that have been used for kitchen countertops were an entire different ball game from what’s used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many an old countertop from homes that have been built in early 1900’s along with the original nailed down countertop had been in place. I have seen tops that have several layers of vinyl after which someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, on top of the layers of vinyl. Each home owner had added the latest and best product that have been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it’s almost work simply to match all of the new as well as recycled products which are used to produce countertops, especially considering that 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 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 create their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is another material that is now being combined with a resin to produce, what I think, is amongst the prettiest and most novel countertops in many years.
