They loved the look of stainless steel counters and in a space this small it works well to add a little glitz to the room. The downfall is that ordering countertops of this style from a retail establishment doesn't come cheap. Looking to keep the price down, they checked into more affordable methods.After speaking with a local a local metal shop, they were able to take the cost down to $20 per square foot (which was far better than the big box retail quote of $150/sqft). The key was making a template of their old countertops. Once that was done, the custom cut piece was delivered and they glued it in place. The look is great. Use it on an island, a prep space, a full length of counters, no matter what, this is hands down the most affordable option we've seen yet!
