Tricky installation. As with other metal countertops, zinc can be difficult for the average homeowner to install. It must be fastened to a substrate, and technical skill and experience are required to ensure a smooth surface and prevent seams from showing. Cost. If you're on a tight budget, zinc can blow it to bits. Zinc starts at around $100 to $120 per square foot. If you're determined to incorporate it, try limiting it to a small section of counter space such as an island.More: Houzz guides to kitchen countersHow to Remodel a Kitchen

This hammered zinc island countertop is this kitchen’s focal point. Natural light accentuates its dappled texture.
