Kitchen Countertops / September 6, 2018 / Darrence Miller
Advantages: Stainless steel offers top-notch durability that stands up to even commercial kitchens and their rigorous standards for cleanliness. It is nonporous and nonstaining, resistant to heat and easy to clean. It also has a life expectancy of nearly a century. Design purists will enjoy its potential for integral sinks and backsplashes.
Recycled glass countertops vary greatly in appearance. IceStone, which is Cradle to Cradle certified, provides an opaque, refined character with its fine glass particles set in pigmented cement. Because the material is porous, recommendations call for sealing twice a year, so make sure you’re up for the maintenance.
