Concrete is often used for foundations of homes and buildings, driveways, and sidewalks. However it is becoming more popular to use concrete for countertops and even flooring. Concrete can mimic tile or be laid as one continuous piece in both flooring and countertops. Concrete can also be dyed different colors or mimic natural stone patterns. There are a number of benefits of using concrete countertops and flooring. Abco Design & Remodeling will share the benefits of installing concrete countertops and floors in your home.
One of the many advantages of concrete is that is can be formed to fit any shape. Especially when it comes to countertops, a frame is built in the shop or if desired, the concrete and frame can be installed directly inside the home. The concrete is poured and dried inside the frame of the shape of the countertop. Sometimes it is difficult to get a large enough piece of large stone to fit bigger countertops areas. Concrete can be used for any size countertop and accommodates the bigger kitchen beautifully. If you don’t want to spend a fortune installing natural stone, concrete is the affordable option and it can be used in any kitchen.
Concrete Can Be Colored
Concrete can also be formed to fit any style of kitchen. Concrete can be colored and even colors can be mixed into the concrete that will mimic natural stone patterns and coloring. For those who may want their flooring or countertop bright will color, or blended in with the rest of the coloring of the kitchen, when using concrete you can create any look you want with any color you want. When most people hear “concrete” they image sidewalks, so using it for their countertops can turn many people away from the idea. However this isn’t the case. Concrete is colored and poured into a frame. After the concrete dries, it is then coated with an epoxy which helps add more color and a shiny, smooth surface.
Durability of Concrete
Concrete can look amazing. It is able to fit in any countertop design or layout and even looks great on floors. As stated, concrete can mimic tile or natural stone. However one of the leading benefits of concrete is that it is extremely durable. Concrete is resistant to heat, scratches, and is easily repaired. Maintenance is easily accomplished and concrete is environmentally friendly in the sense that concrete is easily repaired and manufactured, where natural stone is not a renewable material.
