Stainless steel can be used as a hard working countertop. However, most of my residential clients shy away from it as it scratches ( of course it does). Every once in a while, when I am looking for a special counter around a prepsink, I will create a small area where we create a plywood substrate, wrap it in stainless steel and weld a sink to it to make the whole piece appear seamless. In this particular application the end of my so-called 'Infinity Island' (fashioned after the Infinity Pool outside) drops down from the glass counter into a slightly lowered stainless steel counter. As for the use of other metals - I myself have never used anything else then stainless. Possibly, if I wanted to create the look of raw steel, there are great laminates available for this type of look, but that wouldn't be everybody's cup of tea. Zink might be a possibilty for an old world look, but Zink is not foodsafe, so you would want to be careful how and where you would use it. Copper is soft, and - although beautiful - not the easiest material to maintain properly. You can actually see on the photo that I did use copper in this kitchen as well, as the door finish on the liquor cabinet of my sculptural bar, which is the 'little brother' of the fireplace. The copper was chosen to bring the materila which was also used on the front entrance door, into the home. it is intended to age over time, and darken, so one doesn't have to put a huge effort into polishing it.
