Discovering concrete!

I have received many in inquires about my thoughts on concrete and how to use concrete.

I have actually just recently introduced concrete into my design aesthetic

I love concrete.  Concrete has always been thought of as a material only suitable for very contemporary homes. Not true any more.

For those who desire a countertop that stands apart from common surfaces, concrete is the answer. If your countertop options have only included granite, tile, synthetic solid surfaces or engineered quartz, then you understand the limitations and frustration with such materials that are so commonly installed in households today. Concrete countertops are an option you need to consider.

Concrete countertops are getting mainstream because of their many benefits. Concrete brings new options for countertop surfaces without sacrificing durability. And, concrete far surpasses other commonplace materials in design choices for shape, color, thickness, embedments, and more. No other countertop material offers nearly unlimited options as does a concrete counter. Tops for your cabinetry have never looked so good.

One of the most alluring features of concrete countertops is that they are crafted by an artisan rather than mass produced in a factory. The doors for design potential are wide open with this malleable material shaped in the hands of experienced contractors who are familiar with its capabilities. Concrete is not your typical, characterless material.

Concrete is a great material for high traffic areas like mud rooms and kitchens, ancillary bathrooms off kitchens and family rooms.  Once sealed, concrete is as durable a material as using a granite or marble.
