Restoration Hardware Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, the materials which are being used for kitchen countertops were an entire different ball game from what’s being used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a well used countertop from homes which are internal the early 1900’s along with the original nailed down countertop had been available. I have seen tops that have several layers of vinyl then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, together with the layers of vinyl. Each new house owner had added the modern and greatest product that have been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it can be almost work just to match all of the new or recycled products that are being used to produce countertops, especially because 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 quite a while now but do you know 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 an additional material that’s now being blended with a resin to generate, what I think, is among the prettiest and many novel countertops in lots of years.
