When it comes to kitchen-countertop surfaces, anything goes. As Fine Homebuilding assistant editor Rob Yagid shows, today's options in countertops go far beyond traditional laminate and granite to include such choices as bamboo, scrap metal, recycled glass, and even paper. In addition to providing descriptions of the manufacturing process for each countertop material, Yagid provides sources of supply and price information. The article also includes sidebars on the latest in laminate countertops and concrete countertops.
