Two Tone Kitchen Cabinets Ideas | A century ago, materials that were getting used for kitchen countertops were an entirely different ball game from what’s getting used today. Through out my remodeling career I have torn out many a vintage countertop from homes that were built-in early 1900’s as well as the original nailed down countertop was still in place. I have seen tops which had several layers of vinyl and then someone had installed a laminate, like Formica, on top of the layers of vinyl. Each new house owner had added the modern as well as product which had been developed for kitchen countertops.
Today it is almost work in order to keep up with every one of the new and or recycled items that are getting used to manufacture countertops, especially because the GREEN PRODUCTS movement has really started to grab 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 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 yet another material that is now being when combined a resin to make, what I think, is amongst the prettiest and a lot novel countertops in many years.
