Stainless steel is mostly used in contemporary and transitional kitchen and bar spaces, especially on countertops and backsplashes.
Durability and Maintenance
Stainless steel is non-porous, antibacterial, and requires very little upkeep, with soap and water and general stainless steel cleaner being the best methods for keeping finger prints under control. Composed of 60% recycled content, stainless steel is an eco-friendly surface option and can be recycled again and again.
Stainless steel costs are in line with a mid-range granite in the C-D price range, and although the surface material is subject to scratching, these flaws add to the stainless steel look.
Selection and Installation
Stainless steel is readily available through many sheet metal fabricators, and it can be installed by anyone experienced in general countertop installation methods.
