Standard Size Kitchen Cabinets | A century ago, materials which were used for kitchen countertops were a complete different ball game from what exactly is used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a well used countertop from homes which were internal earlier 1900’s and also the original nailed down countertop was still available. I have seen tops which had several layers of vinyl and then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, together with the layers of vinyl. Each new house owner had added the newest and greatest product which had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it really is almost work just to match every one of the new as well as recycled products which are used to fabricate countertops, especially since the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really did start to pick up steam. Not only are companies using recycled glass however they are now using recycled paper and cardboard. Bamboo flooring continues to be available for a long time now but did you know that you can get 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 which is now being combined with a resin to produce, what I think, is among the prettiest and a lot novel countertops in several years.
