When you think of countertops, do you only think of laminate, wood and granite? If so, you might be missing out on a lesser known, but equally great countertop solution: concrete. Concrete countertops offer several benefits you won't find elsewhere--all in one attractive and hard-working package.
Here are four of them:
1. Concrete Countertops are Highly Customizable
While laminate does come in a wide range of color options, no countertop option is as highly customizable as concrete countertops. Not only can concrete be mixed to produce nearly any color imaginable, but it can also be formed into various shapes as well. You can choose a sloped section that will allow water and juices to drain right into your sink or a slotted section where you can store knives right at hand. You can even have kitchen accessories like cutting boards or vases built in.
2. Concrete Countertops are Very Durable
If you want countertops that will last for years, concrete countertops are the way to go. Concrete is highly durable and scratch resistant. It will look and perform well for years without scratching, chipping, breaking or otherwise showing its age. You don't have to be as careful with it as you would with wood or laminate.
3. Concrete Countertops are Eco-friendly
Unlike other countertop options, concrete is not petroleum based or synthetic. It is made with natural materials, and it can even be made with recycled materials added in. Plus, concrete is made with cement, which is a very abundant resource, so concrete does not put the Earth's resources in danger like other countertops materials can.
4. Concrete Countertops are Unique
For a truly unique countertop, concrete countertops are a great solution. When everyone else has the standard laminate and granite options, concrete provides an attractive and unique alternative. Plus, the large degree of customization that concrete offers makes it easy for you to have a custom countertop that is truly like none other.
