    custom stainless steel kitchen countertops

    There are many reasons why stainless steel is increasingly finding its way into homeowners’ kitchens in the form of custom countertops, casework, and cabinetry. Simply put, stainless steel is an attractive, durable, and long-lasting material that is easy to clean and care for. But you probably already knew all this, especially if you’re looking to find the right stainless steel countertop for your kitchen.

    Here are three things to think about when you’re looking for that perfect countertop:

    1. 1. Grade
    2. Since stainless steel is an alloy, there are various grades which depend solely on the composition of the metal. The most common grade of stainless steel is Type 304, which is recognized as food-grade. Composed of high levels of nickel and chromium this grade offers resistance to heat, stains, and bacteria. Using Type 304, Stainless Fabricators delivers our customers stainless countertops that will stand up to the demands of kitchen life.

    3. 2. Style
    4. While stainless steel was once considered “cold” or “industrial” in appearance, homeowners are now recognizing its ability to appear elegant and modern. Its gleaming design and light reflectivity can make even the smallest kitchen appear large. With various edge styles available, homeowners can choose from: marine, squared, raised rolled, or bull nose edge to get the right look and functionality from their countertops.

    5. 3. Fit
    6. Stainless steel countertops are easily customizable and offer homeowners a countertop that fits seamlessly around sinks, columns, cooktops, and trash chutes. Homeowners can also choose to extend the stainless steel into a backsplash as well. Working with Stainless Fabricators ensures your countertops will complement your home perfectly and enhance the functionality of your kitchen.

    At Stainless Fabricators, we will work closely with you to understand your needs and then create a custom stainless steel countertop that checks everything off your list.
