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.

Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
Engineering and technology have made a wide variety of design choices and finishes possible.
