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.
Unlike wood, aluminium fixtures and cabinets don’t need to be painted or varnished or even oiled – just a simple cleaning and they look brand new. The fact that aluminium is heat resistant also makes it a great material to build a modular kitchen out of. A major concern in any kitchen is pests; aluminium becomes the perfect material for the kitchen because of the fact that it is pest resistant
Next, came the demo work on the pantries. We removed old molding and shelving, patched up and sanded the plaster walls, and gave everything a fresh coat of paint. My husband had the great idea to use unfinished steps as shelves because they would never bow and they already had a bullnose edge which meant less sanding for him.
