Trends in Concrete Kitchen Countertops

Want to add some cool concrete to your kitchen? Here are a few good places to start:

  • Terrazzo concrete. This type of kitchen countertop has small bits of stone, glass, tile, and other elements embedded in the concrete, creating a unique look and a lasting impression. The concrete is polished on top to bring out the beauty of the pieces swirled together underneath.
  • Veined concrete. Veined concrete often has streaks of various colors throughout the material, leading to a polished yet natural appearance. Veined concrete can closely mimic the beauty of marble. In fact, it might be tough to tell the difference at first glance and touch.
  • Colored concrete. Concrete kitchen countertops can be customized in any color imaginable, so you can always find the perfect blend for your kitchen design ideas. Pigments added to the concrete can give you everything from the cleanest white to vivid blues, pinks, and greens. Take the colors further by opting for concrete that mimics the look of natural stone, including slate and granite.

Concrete kitchen countertops have the added advantage of being custom-made for your kitchen, so you can plan on unique design plans and not have to worry about whether the factory-standard countertops fit into your vision. If you're tired of the limited options with other countertops, give concrete a try.
