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.
In addition, for storage purposes, these kitchens offer optimum amount of storage area. It is created both below and above the working counter. The wall mounted cabinets and cabinetry below the counter blend perfectly with décor and serves the purpose. Straight kitchens offer easy workflow in the given space. These single stylish units are very flexible and allow scope for alterations or extensions. In this type of kitchen, integration of heavy and large appliances can be planned easily to offer more working space.
While marble makes a smooth, cool surface for rolling out pastry dough, it stains too easily to be practical for general food preparation. It could serve handsomely, though, in the less rigorous role of a backsplash. Granite, probably today's most popular high-end counter material and one often used in "period-inspired" kitchens, would have been rare in early 20th-century houses. A process to cut granite slabs as thin as 1 wasn't discovered until the 1930s, and the material remained prohibitively expensive until the 1960s.
