Concrete countertops are relatively new to the market, but they have been proven to be better than standard granite and quartz. In this blog post, we will explore 4 reasons why concrete is a great choice for your countertop!
Concrete is very durable and resistant to stains, scratches, wear and tear. Since it is an engineered material, concrete counters are made from a combination of materials including aggregate (sand) that make them much more durable than natural stone countertops. You can also seal your new countertop with silicone which will protect against moisture for the life of your home.
It’s inexpensive in comparison to quartz or granite; you may even be able buy one slab instead of many smaller pieces like you would with other types of stones. It is half the price of a granite countertop and only slightly more expensive than quartz.
Concrete is much less affected by temperature changes, which makes them ideal for areas like kitchens that have different temperatures throughout the day. It also keeps your counters feeling cool in summer and warm in winter!
Easy to Clean
The surface of concrete isn’t porous so it doesn’t hold onto stains or food bits as easily as other materials; this means you can clean them with just soap and water without damaging their sealant or getting into cracks and crevices where bacteria could grow.
Concrete countertops are made from a recycled mixture of materials and water, so they make for an eco-friendly choice. They also have much less impact on the environment during their manufacturing process as opposed to traditional stones that have been quarried out of mountains using machinery or chemicals. This means there is a lesser chance your concrete counters will produce toxic particles in your home which can be harmful if inhaled over time or come into contact with food while you prepare meals!
Another great thing about them is how customizable they are – you can paint them any color, add different colors throughout to create patterns such as marbleized stone, engrave designs like faux marble textures etcetera. You’ll be able to get the look you want without breaking your budget.
