Concrete Countertops for Your Custom Kitchen

Posted on: February 17, 2011

One of the most important elements of any custom kitchen design is the kitchen countertop. Second to kitchen cabinets, your countertops are one of the most distinguishing parts of your kitchen. The current trend du jour in kitchen interiors is the use of concrete for the countertops – a versatile and customizable surface that can be handcrafted into any shape or color to match the rest of your kitchen design such as your floors and more, for example, if someone is wanting to continue the concrete trend throughout the kitchen they may use different types and colors for various components around the room, the key would be to make it all look like different material, this could be achieved in many different ways such as looking at Concrete polishing for the flooring, this can create a luxurious sheen to your floor while also remaining very resistant to spills and heavy foot traffic.

Jack Rosen doesn’t install concrete countertops as a standalone job, but if you’re ready to remodel, we can design a new kitchen for you that includes concrete countertops! These types of countertops are appealing to many homeowners.

Casting Concrete Countertops to Meet Your Needs

One of the best features of concrete countertops is that you can cast them to your specific needs. Even if your kitchen counters take unique form, your concrete countertops can easily be cast to whatever shape is needed. While most concrete countertops are precast in molds built to specification, some designers prefer to cast the concrete directly on the countertops. Regardless, every casting is custom-made and inherently unique. In building with concrete, there may be a need for non shrink grout to ensure the construction is of the utmost quality.

Adding Distinction to Your Kitchen

There are many techniques for creating a unique look in your concrete countertops, including different mixes of ingredients, casting treatments and surface treatments. The color can be matched to other design elements in your kitchen such as backsplash tiles, decorative pieces or paint colors. Add other types of stone or glass to create a sparkle or personality in your countertops. Embed family mementos into your countertops to create a truly personal touch. You can treat the surface of your concrete countertops by grinding, polishing, stamping or staining them. No matter what you do with your concrete countertops, they will stand out as great-looking and unique.

Increasing Functionality in Your Kitchen

Concrete countertops are perfect for adding built-in sinks, faucets and appliances since they can be cast in any shape. While many different styles of sinks (including stainless steel) will look great with your concrete countertops, you can also mold a custom concrete sink that blends seamlessly with your countertop! Your concrete countertops can be cast to include custom features like embedded trivets for hot pots and pans, or embedded drain boards that run off the countertop directly into your sink.

No matter what your design preferences are, concrete countertops allow for a wide range of customization. They can be a great finishing touch no matter what style you want for your new custom kitchen design.
