If you imagine that aluminum countertops resemble solid metal surfaces like commercial stainless steel counters, you’re quite wrong. Aluminum countertops are closer to quartz (engineered stone) or solid surface than to stainless steel. They are made of waste aluminum flake, solid surface scrap, and recycled acrylic. The aluminum flakes are added in for appearance, not to create a homogeneous surface. Although an interesting new material, recycle aluminum countertops are somewhat unproven for now. Only time will tell if this will be the next engineered quartz.
Choosing the right kitchen countertop material involves a great deal of simple personal preference—deciding what type of ”look” appeals to you. But there are also objective criteria you can use to choose a countertop material that’s likely to work best for your needs. Even here, some criteria will be more important than others, based on your lifestyle and needs. For example, in a home where the kitchen serves mostly as a social area where people gather, appearance may be of utmost importance, while in a kitchen for a passionate cook, stain- and heat-resistance may be much more important.
