While not quite a finishing option, custom stainless steel countertops also offer the opportunity to have a fully integrated sink created in your counter. With this custom option, the sink and counter are all one piece and there‘s no intelligible seam between the counter and sink. Of course, this is a costlier option.
For greater cost savings, you can opt to purchase a stainless steel sink that comes with an extended drain board on each side. While this is not really a stainless steel countertop it’s a bargain way to add some stainless to your kitchen design for a lot less money.
To remove lime scale, it‘s best to use diluted vinegar and for coffee deposits, clean the area with baking soda. Using chloride-free glass cleaner is also another way to get a quick shine. Professional installation is recommended unless you are experienced in construction and kitchen installations. That said, whether you can do it yourself or not also depends on the complexity of your project and how big it is.
