Recently many new kitchen countertop design trends have emerged in the design world.  Many homeowners are choosing to use countertops made of nontraditional materials.  It’s not just about granite and marble anymore!  Some of the hottest trends include:

1)  Poured Concrete:  Concrete is durable, strong and withstands the test of time.  It can also give your kitchen an organic or natural look.

2)  Butcher Block:  Butcher block can create an elegant, yet functional countertop.  A bit more maintenance is required with this type of material as it should be oiled and sealed monthly.

3)  Reclaimed Wood:  This is a very environmental conscious design choice and can create an aged look that you won’t get with a new butcher block.

4)  Cork:  An extremely versatile choice, cork is durable, lightweight and even has some antibacterial properties.

5)  Stainless Steel:  Stainless steel creates a trendy, modern countertop and can tie together the look of entire kitchen when stainless appliances are being used.

Regardless of the type of material you choose for your kitchen countertops, you should ensure that they are being properly secured with countertop support brackets or corbels.  Metropolis Iron’s line of corbels is durable and can be used with any kitchen countertop material.  If you don’t see a corbel design you like, just ask! We love custom orders.
