If you’re looking for a countertop that develops a rich, blue-toned patina, zinc is a good option. Zinc reacts over time with water, oils and citrus. The reactions are what create the beautiful, rich patina that is the metal’s signature. Zinc countertops are best left in their natural, matte-finish state.
However, the key to using tin successfully is moderation. Since the designs imprinted on the finish are often very detailed, too much of this material can feel overwhelming to the eye. For best results, treat tin like a focal point. Use it in places where you’ll want to draw extra attention — behind a high-end stove, or over a wide sink.
Do you really need a one? Not really. But you’ll inevitably get that wall dirty while cooking or washing dishes, and an easy-to-clean surface can make messes easier to wipe up, especially if your stove doesn’t have a one built in. And almost any type of material can work–from bamboo to corkboard–as long as it’s properly sealed.
