If you have an eye for detail and love the industrial loft look, then you may consider looking at zinc for your next renovation. Zinc has the clean, metallic look of stainless steel, yet unlike the harsh edges and more clinical austerity of steel, zinc surfaces emanate a warmer, richer tone due to the natural ageing patina which will eventually weather to a soft, pewter grey.
Zinc has been traditionally used throughout Europe, especially in highly-esteemed French kitchens but has caught the eyes of many ambitious renovators. Zinc is a natural product that is coveted by those who love the warmth, lustre and durability of a metal product. Zinc has attributes such as antiseptic properties (similar to copper) that can kill bacteria upon contact without the use of sanitising agents, perfect for a busy kitchen or bar!
