When it comes to eco-friendly countertop materials, there are several options available. Bamboo is a fast-growing renewable resource that is an excellent choice for countertops. Alkymipolyester is a recycled countertop material composed of post-industrial waste, and is certified to contain 34% by weight or 60% by volume. This material is manufactured from aluminum scrap in fine flakes, which normally produces a strong smoke contaminant when exposed to conventional aluminum recycling.
However, when recycled on an ALKEMI surface, the scrap does not leave dangerous traces. Reclaimed wood is another eco-friendly option for countertops. It can be used in kitchens and bathrooms, and comes in traditional bamboo or bamboo in threads with a traditional bamboo core. Recycled glass countertops offer an exceptional touch of color and vitality that cannot be found on any other countertop.
Stone countertops must be manufactured locally by a professional who will model, manufacture and install your countertop. This is one of the easiest ways to make a major statement in the kitchen or bathroom, as it can become the focal point of the room. With careful planning, you can change the whole feel of your kitchen with the countertop of your choice.
