Sanibel Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, the materials which were being used for kitchen countertops were a whole different ball game from what’s being used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a classic countertop from homes which were built in early 1900’s and also the original nailed down countertop was still being available. I have seen tops that had several layers of vinyl and then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, in addition to the layers of vinyl. Each new home owner had added the latest and greatest product that had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it can be almost work simply to maintain each of the new and or recycled products which are being used to manufacture countertops, especially since the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really begun to pick-up steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass but they are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring continues to be out on the market for some time now but are you aware that you should buy bamboo countertops. Plus, one company is even mixing recycled post consumer paper with bamboo fibers to create their counter material. Scrap aluminum shavings is yet another material that is now being blended with a resin to generate, what I think, is probably the prettiest and most novel countertops in many years.
