Why A Zinc Table Is Addition In An Industrial Interior Designed Kitchen

By Carol Edwards

Interior design has adjusted to the evolved lifestyles of people in the city. Currently, industrial contemporary design is a trend many homeowners are using for their homes and even in commercial areas. This aesthetic is popular for the materials it uses uses, a combination of brick, steel, and wood. The artistic and functionality of this type of design is reminiscent of the comfort and buzz that is the core of living life in the metropolis.

Furniture can bring a great impact in the overall theme of a room. Take a zinc table, for example. These tables are made out of a living alloy that can be easily found. Not only are these good for table tops but they also work with the counters and other surfaces. There is an unexpected elegance when using this material.

The alloy becomes more charming as time goes by. This is why people usually opt for this material because of the vintage effect that the patina causes. The surface reacts to lemon juice, fingerprints and other things that may come in contact with it and over time, develops as dark blue gray patina that most people like. This can take a long time though.

These tables are very versatile in matters of style. They can be used in industrial, contemporary and even modern themed rooms. The durability of this material make it an ideal choice for busy kitchens and restaurants. This makes it a staple for any kitchen or room. Initially this alloy was popularly used as bar tops during pre world war II.

Steel and metal elements are usually the main materials used for industrial kitchens. Due to their stainless, non porous and anti bacterial properties they have started to become a staple. People like more low maintenance things now. Stainless steel, bronze, copper and pewter are also popular choices for table tops. It is hard to deny that metals used in furniture is the equivalent of brains and beauty.

It is easy to attach a zinc sheet to an old table, or a flea market find. Although, one always has the choice of contacting a fabricator, which is all a matter of preference. There are many DIY tutorials online that basically states the process is as simple as cut, pasting, wrapping and soldering.

There is little maintenance needed for metal surfaces. Since the surface is non porous, mild soap and water are good enough for cleaning. Abrasive and harsh chemical should not be used since this can damage the material. Make sure to wipe down any dirt that touches the table after usage.

Usage and maintenance are simple, too. These tables can handle sharp objects but unlike stainless steel, direct contact with a knife or a piercing object can leave an impression on the surface. In this case, always use a cutting board. This surface also has a melting point of 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Use hotplates and trivets to avoid problems and do not put hot pots and pans directly on the top.

Urban interiors have a certain charm using materials like reclaimed wood and the genuine beauty of exposed metal beams and construction materials. Naturally these elements are found in the building or rooms making. The chrome, black, metal and wood combination make zinc a perfect fit in this particular setting. Using zinc is versatile enough for the different aesthetics of modern, contemporary and even traditional interior design.
