Concrete Kitchen Countertopsconcrete counters

For a simple, clean look that’s neither fussy nor formal, concrete kitchen countertops are a trendy kitchen design element that’s on the rise.

Eco-friendly—the material is so durable, it could literally last a lifetime—concrete is also a recyclable material. At its most basic, a concrete mix consists of sand, rock and cement, which makes it more a more sustainable option than other countertop materials (think granite or marble) that are mined, non-renewable materials.

Concrete counters are also quite heavy, so you’ll need to make sure the base, whether it’s cabinetry or an island, is strong enough to support the weight. While beautiful in its natural state, concrete can also be colored or stained in a variety of colors.

To further customize the look, many kitchen designers will add recycled or remnant materials like glass, sea glass, shells or fossils to still-wet concrete for a unique and custom look.

Stamped concrete, often called textured or imprinted concrete, is concrete that replicates stones such as slate and flagstone, tile, brick and even wood. Ideal for beautifying pool decks, driveways, entries, courtyards, and patios, stamped concrete is the perfect outdoor paving choice.

Recently, stamped concrete has become a popular choice for many homeowners because it offers a wide array of options when it comes to concrete pattern and concrete colors. Another factor contributing to its popularity is its price. The cost of stamped or imprinted concrete is often considerably lower than the materials it is a substitute for.

Even in complex designs with steps and fountains, patterns can be still be pressed into the concrete. Stamped concrete can also be used in conjunction with other decorative concrete elements such as exposed aggregate or acid staining. Popular patterns include running bond brick, hexagonal tile, worn rock or stone.
