Stainless steel is made of 60 percent recycled content and, because it can be recycled again and again, has an extended useful life. This product offers top-notch durability that stands up to even commercial kitchens and their rigorous standards for cleanliness. Perfectionists take note: Keeping stainless steel free of smudges and watermarks can be a chore.
Countertops are typically fabricated from 14- or 16-gauge material, which is then glued to a substrate of plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to form a rigid surface. Type 304 stainless steel is commonly used, due to its higher chromium content (and therefore corrosion resistance) and ability to be welded without affecting its durability or strength. Most common is a number 4 brushed finish, but stainless steel is also available in satin (smooth), antique matte and any number of specialty patterns.
Bio-Glass, another recycled glass countertop material with Cradle to Cradle certification, has an ethereal, translucent appearance, as it’s made of 100 percent glass. As with all glass-based counters, it’s not knife friendly, so keep your cutting boards handy.
The secret is in the contrast. If you want your countertop to stand out, select a countertop color that pops or stands out from the cabinetry.
