Concrete countertops are appealing for their complete versatility and abundance of custom color options. This handcrafted surface gives you the ability to choose size, shape, color and finish. Using concrete doesn’t necessarily mean your countertop will be grey like the sidewalk pavement. With a wide variety of colorizing and staining techniques available, you can maximize the beauty and personality of your space with a truly one-of-a-kind design.
Concrete counters require a level of maintenance that isn’t ideal for some customers. Regular sealing every one to three years is highly recommended to avoid staining. While reinforcements can be put into place, this material is susceptible to hairline cracks, so if you don’t like “character” from long-term use, you may not want to take the risk with choosing this surface.
