Have you ever watched one of those cooking shows? You know the ones where the host walks you through the steps of making some delicious dish and then magically has a completed dish waiting in the oven to show you how easy it is. Those shows highlight the creativity that can be involved in kitchen creations. The hub and center of kitchen creativity is the kitchen itself. A well designed kitchen can cultivate the culinary imagination. And you know what’s better than a beautiful kitchen? A beautiful and useful kitchen. Concrete countertops can give you the very best of both worlds. More and more, homeowners, business owners, and culinary geniuses are realizing that cement countertops can be a versatile and durable option for the kitchen.
Before you judge to quickly, concrete countertops are not simply a cement slab of sidewalks slapped on a pedestal and called a countertop. Master concrete countertop technicians, like those at Hard Rock Concrete Coatings Utah, masterfully engineer concrete countertops to be beautiful, rugged, durable, and practical.
Concrete countertops can be formed and cured on or off site. This means that the customer has a supreme amount of input on the creation of their countertop. No matter where the countertop is created, no two countertops end up looking exactly the same. This uniqueness is one of the great aspects of the beauty of cement countertops. When Hard Rock Concrete Coatings technicians create a counter they become artists designing a masterful work of art. To create unique, personalized work of art, cement countertop artists can:
- -Incorporate curves and angles that exist in the room
- -Customize color
- -Match other design elements in the room
- -Add some shine or sparkle with glass or even lights
- -Use mementos like chipped dishware
- -Integrate practical features such as sinks, soap dishes, etc.
As noted above, concrete can match any color scheme. With a beautiful concrete acid stain and other mixtures, the countertop can look like almost anything the owner wants. One of the ongoing trends right now is an earthy nature look. Concrete countertops can easily be made to match a natural look to match the rest of a room or home. Additionally, with a quality concrete sealant, the concrete becomes waterproof and even more heat resistant. This means the counter can stand up to almost anything imaginable that it could face in the kitchen like spills, hot pans, cutting, and pounding.
The bottom line is this: A concrete countertop is only limited by your imagination. If you want a beautiful, tough, and practical countertop, concrete should be at the top of your list.
