I looked into several of the links that everyone passed on. The absolute coolest looking materials were from Chemetal. However once I spoke to them, they told me that they are not for counter tops because the material is too soft. It's more for decorative features. We are having some of the Formica brand samples sent to us. I've heard from a few people that they are very cool, and of course, durable.

My neigbor just installed brushed stainless counter tops in his home,a cabinet company laminated and bent sides they look great. Plus I think scratches in stainless add a natural patina to the metal. Darrell

Has the factory ever offered this option? I don't think they have, but I haven't been keeping track. If not, what do they know that we don't? Anything? Or are we just being innovative!

I just did my motorhome counter in stainless with a welded in sink. Just got a 31' Sovereign and am planning on doing the counters in stainless as well. Buy thin stainless and simply glue it down, I will photograph the process and post it here. I will be doing a orbital finish to avoid the scratches, it looks great and cleans well.

I happen to know that Wilsonart laminate has a great looking "steel" that would work great for you. It's a nice contempory look. Lasts and wears well. Would not show water or smudges either.
