Want a tough, easy clean and totally unique countertop for kitchens, restaurants, shops, or as office meeting tables? Then give a thought to concrete countertops for their uniquely customizable range of color, texture, shape, and unlimited range of edge types and styles. Concrete countertops are tailor made so they will perfectly fit your space even if it is an unusual size or shape and has to flow around other objects or projections. If you're looking for a kitchen countertop then consider that concrete can have draining built right into it and unlike tile surfaces or wood there is no grout or grain that can act as a hiding place for microbes and dirt. Concrete is as tough as rock but way more flexible so you can have your countertop your way.
One of the beauties of concrete is that you can customize it with other elements set into the concrete as it's poured making them an integral part of your countertop. Common elements are a draining board made directly in the concrete itself or trivets and chopping areas. Decorative elements include natural rocks or aggregates that are applied to give a completely unique design. Integrated lighting is another eye catching element that some clients ask for as part of their countertops and that can include specialist lighting such as light boxes or retail display lights.
Any Look You Like
Stains and stamps or added aggregates mean that there is a literally limitless range of looks for a concrete countertop and that includes finishes that perfectly reproduce the appearance of granite, slate, wood, or marble. So no matter what the limitations of space and size you can have a countertop that looks exactly how you like with the sky being the limit when it comes to inventive designs including patterns and stencils.

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete
When people talk about reinforced concrete they're normally talking about mesh or metal rebar that is used to make the concrete tougher but for countertops we reinforce the concrete with glass fiber to make glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) that is not only more lightweight than conventional concrete but also strong enough to handle overhangs and other bold design features.
That Sinking Feeling
A lot of countertops, both residential and commercial are meant to incorporate a sink and faucets. Concrete is so flexible and customizable that any kind of sink and faucet can easily be built in including full professional multi faucet and spray nozzle combinations. Plus the sink can actually be an integrated feature of the countertop poured from the concrete itself which means zero seams, no grout lines to clean, and no niches or edges where germs and grime can build up. Talk to us about the infinite range of edges that can be applied to a concrete countertop from stylishly severe to rounded for safety – with concrete anything is possible.
