Rustic Look Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, materials which are used for kitchen countertops were an entirely different ball game from what is used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a well used countertop from homes which are built in the early 1900’s as well as the original nailed down countertop had been in place. I have seen tops which in fact had several layers of vinyl after which someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, along with the layers of vinyl. Each new home owner had added the modern and greatest product which in fact had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it can be almost work in order to keep up with each 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 you are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring may be available for a long 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 another material that’s now being combined with a resin to create, what I think, is probably the prettiest and quite a few novel countertops in numerous years.
