Concrete counters

Concrete counter tops can be a good choice if you have counters that are unusual in shape. These designer counters are often cast right in your kitchen for a custom look. However, the price tag for these unique counters is high and may be beyond most people’s budget.

Pros: These counters are heat and scratch resistant and can be color-tinted. They can be finished to look exotic and unusual. And there are new treatments  available to eliminate cracking and additives to reduce porosity.
Cons:  Cost is mid -to -high range due to custom work; cracking is possible if not treated properly. These counters can look somewhat industrial ; and if not sealed they can be porous.
