How does stainless steel wear over time, does it have a dulled effect?

Thank you for your question. Stainless steel is one of the most durable counter materials out there. All stainless steel, regardless of gauge, will show scratches and hazing over time but many of these are not "noticeable" due to the equalizing nature of the hazing (it usually helps to mask or hid larger scratches). If you've ever seen stainless steel in a public space and haven't noticed this condition-quality, than you'll never notice it in your kitchen. I've never seen stainless steel develop a dull effect either, so long as you're using good-quality and high gauge stainless. I hope this is helpful.

Love the sink/countertop - did you consider a marine edge? - Hi - I love your work! I am about to do a stainless countertop in my kitchen and am thinking about a marine edge, but I like the look you achieved without it. Was the smooth edge by design or did you consider a marine edge to keep water etc. from spilling over?

Thanks for the compliment! The smooth edge was done out of preference. Marine edges are great if you're worried about a lot of spills etc. but aren't completely necessary. I actually have never done a kitchen counter (out of any material) with this style of lip because none of my clients have found it necessary. Implementing a marine edge would sill look clean but would add to the overall cost for sure (especially if you have a lot of corners and angles like this installation has). Hope this helps! Best of luck with your project...

The sink is integrated right into the stainless steel counter tops. The counters were made by a Chicago company called Steelskin (formally known as Soupcan). Thanks for your question!

You'll want to look for at least 18/10 stainless steel. Depending on where you are in the country it should be fairly easy to find a custom fabrication shop to make something like this. Stainless Steel counters would compare with higher-end Granite as it relates to cost.

It is from Ann Sacks and is part of the Ann Sacks collection. It's a 2" x 4" tile in an off-set brick pattern. The glazing on this particular color-way has a "burnt" finish which causes the color variation and "stressing" at the edges. Many companies do similar finishes like this but I truly believe Ann Sacks does this particular style the best...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The basics: Stainless steel is a steel alloy that includes at least 10.5 percent chromium, which makes the steel resistant to corrosion (unlike conventional carbon steel).Countertops are typically fabricated from 14- or 16-gauge material, which is then glued to a substrate of plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to form a rigid surface. Type 304 stainless steel is commonly used, due to its higher chromium content (and therefore corrosion resistance) and ability to be welded without affecting its durability or strength. Most common is a number 4 brushed finish, but stainless steel is also available in satin (smooth), antique matte and any number of specialty patterns.Cost: $80 to $90 per square foot installed.
Fully integrated. There is no molding, caulking or sink edge to work with and clean around when you have a sink connected directly to the countertop. A fully integrated sink is made of same material as the countertop, connected with virtually invisible seams.These made-to-order sinks mean you can choose the exact size and sink depth. However, this can get expensive with certain materials. If you're set on this style but want to cut costs, look into fully integrated solid-surface sink options.

Stainless steel is a steel alloy that includes at least 10.5 percent chromium, which makes the steel resistant to corrosion (unlike conventional carbon steel). Countertops are typically fabricated from 14- or 16-gauge material, which is then glued to a substrate of plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to form a rigid surface. Type 304 stainless steel is commonly used, due to its higher chromium content (and therefore corrosion resistance) and ability to be welded without affecting its durability or strength. Most common is a number 4 brushed finish, but stainless steel is also available in satin (smooth), antique matte and any number of specialty patterns.
