Whether your space lacks a proper dining table or you’re looking to create a more casual bar-seating option, adding low-profile seating to the island is an easy way to increase functionality and make the environment more social for both guests and the cook. Create a breakfast bar or dining table, and leave a counter overhang that offers enough room to tuck the chairs or stools underneath when not in use.
We absolutely love kitchens that bring together different materials, finishes and hues in a seamless fashion, and despite all the contrast, the overall image looks both stylish and sophisticated. For those who are both skillful and imaginative enough to accomplish this, the marble countertop offers a perfect way to add panache and refinement to a kitchen already clad in wood, brick, metal or even glass. The graceful finish of marble acts as a counterbalance to the rough presence of brick and unpolished stone, even as it draws you in with its beauty and magnetism.
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.
