When concrete counter tops first came on the scene, people were confused by the industrial nature and appearance. It seemed like a strange choice for a kitchen or bathroom. As time has gone on, concrete counter tops have only increased in popularity. They have made an appearance in Parade homes, on home renovation shows, and in fancy interior design magazines. The look is definitely here to stay. But beyond the modern new look, there are other benefits to choosing concrete counter tops for your home. Take a moment to think about your tired old kitchen counter, or that stained bathroom counter top that you’ve been dying to replace. Could you find something better with concrete? Here are 3 ways you could:
3 Benefits of Concrete Counter tops
1. Price. Concrete is available for a fraction of the cost of granite and quartz counter top options. There are ways to make it even more affordable, such as concrete coatings or even doing it yourself. It’s a relatively easy way to bring a modern and productive update to your kitchen without breaking the bank.
2. Durability. Concrete is known as one of the most durable and long-lasting surfaces available in homes. That’s why it’s used for foundations and floors. Concrete brings a new level of durability and longevity to your counter tops. Concrete can withstand much higher heat, even from hot pots and pans. Concrete can support lots of weight and take a significant beating before it begins to show any wear and tear. If you have a busy kitchen then consider concrete counter tops if only for the tough and long-lasting nature of concrete.
3. Customization. When you hear concrete you may instantly picture your boring garage floor. In fact, concrete counter tops can look like anything you want. First, concrete can be poured into a slab of any shape, to fit any kitchen. Then the concrete can be dyed or stained with acid compounds to produce a variety of colors and finishes. Finally, it’s becoming more popular to inlay the concrete with mosaic tiles or to stamp it for an embossed and textured effect. Just a few searches through Google or interior design websites can show you hundreds if not thousands of options you might like to pursue.
