Concrete Countertops for Any Kitchen
Perfect for modern, traditional, industrial, or rustic kitchens.
Concrete is one of the most popular building materials in the world today. Once just seen as utilitarian, concrete was only used for outdoor construction and unseen foundations, but now concrete is recognized and respected for its beauty and versatility. One of the most common places the design potential of concrete is utilized is in concrete countertops.
With concrete countertops, your creativity can flow.
The reason so many creatives are pursuing concrete countertops recently is due to how customizable they are. Edge profiles can be designed as well as embeds and polishes. You don’t have to stick with the standard gray concrete, you could imitate marble, granite, and beyond! You can also cast kitchen conveniences into the concrete countertops themselves, such as built in cutting boards, trivets, or drainboards. If your kitchen’s a canvas, concrete can be your paint!
What makes concrete unique?
Concrete’s uniquely flexible design style sets the material apart from other countertop options, and it has similar maintenance and durability traits as other natural stone materials. It wasn’t until the 1980s that we started enjoying concrete countertops in our kitchens. Two gentlemen named Buddy Rhodes and Fu-Tung Cheng saw concrete as an artistic design element and noticed that concrete could be cast and molded like clay, making it more customizable than standard stones.
Concrete’s flexibility led to the rise of concrete countertops.
Flexibility might not be what you think of with concrete, but concrete countertops are proof of the substance’s versatility. People want to customize their space and make an interior design that best represents them. Concrete’s ability to be cast into different forms means homeowners’ countertops are only limited by their imagination. Concrete countertops can be customized from the shape to the thickness to even the color.
