The built-in kitchen countertop is largely a 20th-century phenomenon. Wood, marble, and the occasional metal counters usually appeared only in the pantry, even in the most stylish 19th-century homes. When it was present, the worktop was usually a dry sink or a wood table, both of which endure as inspiration for the vintage-look counters we prefer today.
So today we are going to be talking about how to choose a kitchen countertop. This topic seriously gave me hives while we were doing our kitchen remodel. There are just so many options available and just tiny little samples to help you make your decision. Ugh. I spent hours upon hours researching different coutertop materials and ended up bringing countless samples home to “test out”. It was, by far, the hardest decision I made when it came to choosing what I wanted in the kitchen.
The earliest metal sinks often had backsplashes of metal, possibly zinc or lead. Copper sinks found their way into the butler's pantry because they were less likely to chip crystal than were stone sinks; there's little evidence for matching counters, although copper is being adopted for counters now.
