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.
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.
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.
Neutral Hues Whites beiges and light earth tones work great in most kitchens and with almost any wall color or wallpaper making them the top choice for those looking to repaint their kitchen cabinets.
A kitchen can look finished without a backsplash and sometimes a clean coat of (washable) paint is what best executes a design. But at the same time there’s also an opportunity to use the space to anchor the overall design of the room.
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.
