Why Metal Kitchen Counter Tops?
There are plenty of worthy materials to consider for your new kitchen countertops. So, why would you go with metal as opposed to one of the many other options on the market? It’s helpful to settle on your counter selection early in a kitchen build or remodel project, so the rest of the pieces can fall into place soon after. Let’s take a closer look at the advantages you’ll enjoy if you decide to go with metal.
A Bold, Modern Look
Stone counters can look great, but they aren’t exactly uncommon. Many, many houses are fitted with stone counters of one kind or another, so that feature is never going to be something that stands out as a bold or unique element.
Metal, on the other hand, is not nearly as commonly used as a counter. This is a modern approach to kitchen design and it is going to grab attention when family and friends pay you a visit. If one of your goals with this project is to create a kitchen that is unlike any other on the block – or in your entire neighborhood – think carefully about using metal counters.
Maintenance is a Breeze
It’s not all about looks when thinking about using metal countertops. There is also the performance of these counters to consider, as they are extremely durable and very easy to clean. You can just wipe them down with warm, soapy water and look forward to seeing them spring back to life as when they were new. The look of your metal counters is going to hold strong for years to come largely because of how easy they are to clean.
A Healthy Option
Many metals, including copper, offer antibacterial properties that are a welcome addition to the kitchen space. In an area of the home where many people will be spending time throughout the day, and where food items will be handled and prepared, antibacterial characteristics are a welcome boost. Any small step you can take to slow the spread of germs is a chance you don’t want to miss, so add this point to the “pros” column when weighing the value of metal counters for your kitchen project.
Stone counters can get very, very expensive in some cases. While there will always be some kind of investment required to purchase quality counters – and that includes metal – you might be surprised at the value that is offered by the countertops we provide here at CopperSmith. When talking about value, we mean both the price you pay for the product and the useful lifespan that it can be expected to deliver. Between the fair price tag and the long-term performance that your counters will deliver, we think you’ll find metal counters to be one of the best investments you’ve made in your home.

Deciding on new kitchen counters is a big choice, so reviewing the FAQs below may help clear up any confusion you have about metal counters and how they will look and perform in your space.
Is metal good for countertops?
Yes – metal is an excellent pick for countertops in your home. There are many reasons to like metal in this application, including the durability of the material and how easy it is to clean. A mess on the counter is all but assured when cooking at home, and a metal counter will make cleaning up those messes quick and easy. Aside from the many performance advantages, metal counters also look great and add an unexpected visual appeal that is not offered by traditional options such as stone counters. There is also great value to be found in ordering custom metal counters as they offer high-end appeal for a fair price.
Are brass countertops expensive?
Given the upscale look of quality brass counters produced by CopperSmith, you would be forgiven to believe that brass is extremely expensive in this application. That is not the truth, however. Brass offers great value for what you get in return, as it comes with a modest price tag and can be expected to serve your kitchen well for many years. The exact price of your counters will depend on factors like the size and thickness of the counter but rest assured that this will not be the piece of your project that busts the budget.
What is the lowest maintenance countertop?
Maintenance is an important point to think about when picking out new counters because this is an area of your home that tends to see use day after day. If you select counters that are harder to maintain than the average material, you’ll be signing up for years and years of extra work. So, picking something that is low maintenance while still looking and performing great is the ideal outcome. On that point, metal counters are sure to impress – they do everything you need out of a good counter and yet are extremely low maintenance. When your metal counters get dirty, just wipe them off with a damp cloth and you’re all set.
What type of countertop does not stain?
Staining is bad news on counters. You can’t easily replace the counters that are in your kitchen, so you want to pick a material that is unlikely to stain even after years and years of use and abuse. Metal counters score well in this area, as it’s quite difficult to stain a durable metal surface. No matter which of the metal counter options you pick from CopperSmith, you can count on it looking great over the long run.
What is standard countertop depth?
A: When shopping for new counters, it’s helpful to know that the industry standard for countertop depth is 25.5’’. This is a nice depth that provides plenty of workspace on top of the surface while still making it easy for most people to reach the back of the counter with ease. While you are not required to go with this standard dimension, of course, it will make life easier because other components like cabinets and appliances are designed based on this convention.
Which countertop is the most durable?
Durability is one of the most important factors to consider when buying countertops. The countertops you install in your kitchen will be expected to last for many years to come, so you don’t want to run into issues shortly after completing your project. By going with metal counters, you’ll be getting something that not only looks great, but is built to last. Durability and metal go hand in hand and you can count on these counters being a featured piece in your kitchen for years ahead.
What is the most popular countertop for kitchens?
A: The popularity of countertops depends largely on the price range of the shopper. On the lower end of the market, laminate counters are popular because they provide suitable performance for a low price. On the other end, granite and other stone options are also quite popular, but come with a big price tag. Metal counters, while not as common as these other materials, deserve a place in this discussion because of the beauty, value, and durability that they can bring to your kitchen.
