I am looking for a certain type of wall product, but not for my Tiki Lounge. It is for my bar in the Kitchenette area. My style is retro diner. I need to cover the wall below the counter bar area and I want it to look like that galvanized steel wall covering that is in diners. I can usually Google anything, but this has me stumped. I think someone found a site for me once on this board but did a search and couldn't find it again.

I have a repo chrome dinette set with matching bar stools. The wall underneath the counter is flat and curves on the right side. I want to put the covering on the wall part and partially around the curve and also install a chrome/steel foot rest. Any help would be appreciated...I will try to post a picture in the future.

You definitely don't want galvanized. Try www.stainlessliving.com.

Thanks so much...that is what I am looking for. I wonder if they make a formica that has that type of a pattern. I appreciate your help.

Sorry for the dumb questions, but I just am not savvy about building materials. Do you think this laminate would work and also flex around a slight curve in the wall? I like the look of Matte Aluminum Footplate II. Would something like this hold up in a kick space or would it scratch and chip?

No matter what product I end up getting, I would have to get a professional to install. I like to shop ahead of time so I can get the right product and a realistic price. Won't have the mula to do this for a while, so I have plenty of time to decide.
