Stained concrete countertops is really a great option for your kitchen, bathrooms, bar areas, and other countertop areas of your home. The great thing about stained concrete countertops is that it’s less costly than granite. Granite is fine, however it has its limitations. For example, granite is difficult to work with. It’s more fragile than a concrete countertop. It often chips, and these chips can be difficult to repair. This is not the case for a concrete countertop. Should your concrete countertop chip, it’s very easy to repair. And it can be repaired so that it’s not noticeable. This is not always the case with granite.
In addition, granite does have many fine colors to choose from. However, you are limited to whatever the supplier has in stock or is available to choose from. With stained concrete countertops, you can stain or color the surface to any color you like. You can work with it, until you get the color just right. For example, let’s say you have some cabinets in your kitchen for which you want a concrete countertop to accent or compliment. You can color your concrete counters in very subtle ways so that your counters are exactly what you want, and exactly the right compliment for your cabinets. This is something that can’t be done with granite counters.
Stained concrete countertops also can have a more massive look than granite. You can create one that is very thick with a huge bull nose or edge that really can be impressive to look at. If you really want your kitchen to stand out, try installing a countertop that has this thickness and such a bull nose. Your company will be amazed.
