Handcrafted Metal
Hi! Handcrafted Metal makes custom zinc countertops in this style, though we can't take credit for the one seen above. Below are some pictures of a zinc countertop we made in 2008 (hover over them to see a full image). It's has hammered texture, and features an integral sink, drainboard, and backsplash. It's fully welded so no seams are visible, and we shipped the top as a single piece. You can see even better views of this countertop on the page for it on our website:
http://handcraftedmetal.com/Straight-Zinc-Countertops-3926.html

On our website you can also see a variety of other custom countertops. We can make them out of copper, zinc, pewter, bronze, and stainless steel. Our tops are EASY to install. We'll build your custom countertop and then install it on wood substrate, so all you have to do is set it in place and secure it with screws. If you already have a solid surface in place, we can ship your custom countertop without the wood, and you can glue it down over your existing counter top. If you need, we can also include a welded-in sink, or if you already have a sink, we can provide a framed opening, but these features add to the cost. Here's a link to our countertops page:
http://handcraftedmetal.com/countertops.html

We ship all across the US and internationally, and you can enter the size you need to get an instant price on any of our countertops! To get started, choose a metal type, and click any of the styles to see a collection of countertops that we have made in that style. You can then click any of the countertops displayed to see pricing and customize any dimension and feature.

Yes, we've had no problems with these and we are in Newport, RI about 500 yards from the ocean. Go for it! Hope that helps?

It's a more traditional look & feel I guess, perhaps not as practical without a side splash but we didn't want it to look too heavy... hope that helps?

It was a Wood-Mode custom cabinet color matched to BM 'Linen White'. No green hue, might be the photograph but we were careful not to go with a white that had a pink hue under artificial light.... easily done if you're not careful!

Love the zinc bench tops but not sure if suitable for the sink also - being softer wouldn't it dent easily? Is there a compatibility issue between the metals if you drop a stainless sink into a zinc bench?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Think Zinc for Kitchen Countertops
The Pros of ZincAn old-fashioned patina. Zinc bears a dull, slightly mottled surface that has more in common with pewter than with chrome or stainless steel. It looks seasoned even when it's new, and it has an inherent warmth that many metals lack. Zinc typically starts out pale gray and develops a slight blue to green cast as it darkens with time and use. Its natural tarnish can be slowed somewhat with a coat of beeswax now and then. Antimicrobial properties. Zinc naturally resists mold, mildew and bacteria. Stain resistance. Although zinc may react with certain substances over time, spills and splatters won't stain it in the way they might with a porous material such as marble or limestone.
9. Zinc countertops. A zinc bar top is a quintessential part of a French bistro, so much so that "zinc" is actually a slang term for these eateries. While you probably don't have a bar next to your breakfast table, you can get the same look with zinc countertops, which are becoming more and more popular (and thus more widely available). Tell us: What do you love about bistro style? Share your thoughts in the Comments!
