Concrete countertops are currently the biggest trend in kitchen remodels. You may also notice concrete sinks in the restrooms of some of your favorite restaurants. So what makes concrete countertops so desirable? Strength and durability, color options, size and shape, edge detail and the ability to utilize many different add-ins are all factors in the popularity of concrete countertops.
How are concrete countertops made?
Concrete countertops are cast with high strength specialty mixes, designed to be cast thin and with fewer seam requirements than needed in typical slab concrete. Some mixes allow for unsupported spans of several feet and can be cantilevered more than a foot. Concrete countertops can be colored in a variety of ways. The color can be added throughout the entire mix for a solid color top, or you can opt for a stained concrete countertop for a mottled effect. We can apply metallic epoxies to create a highly reflective surface, or the top can be polished to expose aggregate for a more rustic aesthetic. A top can also use multiple coloring options for highly personalized looks. When it comes to countertops, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a material as versatile as concrete!
Concrete can be formed to take any shape imaginable, allowing for a top to conform to any space or to create a centerpiece. Due to the ability to take on any shape, the edge of concrete countertops can have any design, whether it is a straight edge, rounded edge or even egg and dart, any design is possible.
Concrete countertops unique to your style
Want to really set off your concrete countertop? A wide variety of materials can be cast into the countertop slab. Fiber optic lighting is a flashy trend, broken glass is a popular concrete countertop add-in. An old technique also creates a beautiful top, Terrazzo. Terrazzo is created by adding small pieces of marble chips into the mix.
How much do concrete countertops cost?
In terms of the price of concrete bathroom countertops or concrete kitchen countertops, you can usually expect it to fall somewhere in the middle range of countertop costs. It is far more cost-effective than marble and will, of course, have a higher initial cost than something like laminate. Something concrete countertops have over other materials regardless of their price is the unmatched versatility and durability.
