Argentum Nickel Silver Countertops

The Anvil™ Argentum finish imitates the look of real nickel silver countertops. Argentum countertops are identical to nickel silver countertops in look, while embracing the benefits of wood countertops. Argentum countertops are warm to the touch. They are not limited to size or shape, and can be used for complex designs and curved applications unlike real metal countertops.

The Argentum finish can be applied to any wood specie or a composite substrate. When applied to a composite substrate, the countertop can be used in outdoor applications. Countertops with the Argentum finish may include a Durata® overcoat.

Designs with Argentum Nickel Silver Countertops

Argentum Nickel Silver countertops were recently featured in the House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2016 designed by Matthew Quinn. Grothouse crafted a Rift Cut White Oak wood bar top with Argentum metal finish. The Argentum finish was applied to show the texture and grain of the wood. The bar top includes an overcoat of our exclusive Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish.
