Concrete countertops have moved beyond the drab slabs you may remember from the past. New advancements and technology have catapulted this material into the world of architectural-grade products, alongside popular stone and wood options.
Concrete countertops are a serious contender for those seeking a customized material with a natural sensibility, it’s widely adaptable, but is definitely not for those who cherish perfection. Is a concrete counter the right material for you and your kitchen?

That said, there are natural variations in color and texture that occur as the counter is crafted and cured; to concrete advocates, it’s one of material’s appealing qualities.
