Metal Kitchen Countertop Ideas While stainless steel is a good and classic metal option two other metals are seeing a surge in kitchen countertop popularity.
Choose a material: The most common material is wood for kitchen cabinets. Wood is durable versatile and can be stained or painted and can have a million different looks. Other materials include metal/stainless steel plastic laminate and lower quality MDF or particle board. Depending on your lifestyle and budget will help you decide on a material that suits your style and wallet. Metal cabinets and wood are more expensive than plastic laminate and particle board.
Zinc Countertops If you’re looking for a countertop that develops a rich blue-toned patina zinc is a good option. Zinc reacts over time with water oils and citrus. The reactions are what create the beautiful rich patina that is the metal’s signature. Zinc countertops are best left in their natural matte-finish state.
Contrasting Color Kitchen Countertops For a bold effect select a countertop in a lively color. While some of the top choices include yellows oranges and lime green the choice of white or black countertops can be as bold a color choice as yellow depending on the kitchen.
We love our kitchens. We spend so much time in them creating meals and memories with people that we love. So it only makes sense that like the food we cook in them our kitchens should be a reflection of creativity and happiness.
The kitchen countertop is the perfect place to add the ultimate design touch to your kitchen. Regardless of which kitchen countertop ideas you’re attracted to select materials that are durable and built to withstand the wear and tear associated with cooking and prep.
