We have just installed a copper worktop in our kitchen. Copper is very popular in domestic kitchens in America but here in the UK it is usually just found in pubs and restaurants.
Copper has been proven to be a broad spectrum antimicrobial, effective against the headline-making organisms threatening public health today – so perfect for a family kitchen.
However it is not for everyone- it is very soft and easily scratches. Everyday it has new staines and marks but for me it adds to the quality of the worktop. I love seeing how it changes with time.
Worth considering if you ask me especially as it does not break the bank!
