Concrete countertops? What is this – a park pavilion?
No! It’s your brand-new kitchen!
Concrete countertops are making their way into kitchens across the country and it’s an incredible, and useful, new trend in home decor and design. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you will begin seeing it soon.
Concrete countertops are an important option for homes and businesses, and there are a few good reasons for that.
5 Benefits of Concrete Countertops
We literally use concrete as the foundation for our buildings, large and small. This is because concrete is one of the most durable substances we can create.
Concrete is a great choice for countertops because they can hold up so well over time.
One reason homeowners and particularly custom home builders have become interested in concrete countertops is because they can pour and mold concrete countertops into any shape you need.
Often acrylic countertops are impossible to customize, and stone can be so expensive to custom cut and fit. Concrete, on the other hand, can be poured into any shape, size, or thickness desired.
The look of concrete countertops is decidedly modern.
Acrylic and tile countertops can look aged and tacky, and there may come a day when even the most expensive marble looks out-of-date.
But concrete countertops are new and here to stay, meaning you can invest without worrying that it will look aged over time.
Compared with the high-end stone options, concrete offers the same level of design, better durability, better customization, and performance at a much lower retail price.
For some people, it is also possible to do-it-yourself! This can make it even more affordable than other countertop options.
A standard, industrial gray concrete look is popular, but it’s not the only option. There are stains that can change the color of the concrete countertop.
There are stamps that can provide an interesting and beautiful texture to the countertop or edges. You can inlay mosaic stone, glass, tile, and other materials to have a countertop that is 100% unique to you.
You have way more options than the colors or stones offered by contractors or retailers. It’s a huge selling point for creatives looking to make something original.
If you’re looking for an update for your home or business – concrete countertops are an incredible option for kitchens, bathrooms, shared social spaces, and pretty much any other places where you need a counter space. Contact Hard Rock Concrete Coatings today!
