Concrete offers a variety of design options from simple and classy, to enhanced and upscale for a good price and is customizable for your space. At Stone Creations Northwest, we use reinforced concrete to create the most sturdy and durable concrete countertops possible.

here are several benefits of concrete countertops with the main one being cost. Concrete countertops on average are more reasonable than granite. Costs are typically around $65-$135 per square foot, making it a great option for large spaces like kitchens.

DESIGN & CUSTOMIZATION

Concrete countertops give you the freedom to customize the design to fit your space. There are several style options available when using concrete such as simplistic, rustic, industrial, sophisticated, or something completely your own. These countertops can be stained a variety of colors to fit your space and can be enhanced with embedded materials such as stone, glass, ceramic, and more. Another design detail that is unique to concrete is edge details. When the concrete is cast molds can be used to give the edge of the countertops a creative look to match the look and feel of your space.

Concrete can be cast in practically any shape and size to fit your space. Since the concrete is cast as one your countertops will have a completely seamless look. This means there will be no need for grout lines throughout your design. These various design options give your countertops a “premium” look and feel and enhance the value of your property.

DURABLE & LONG-LASTING

Concrete is more durable and long-lasting than other materials including granite. You won’t have to worry about scratches and chipping, especially when a protective coating is added. The protective coating also makes the countertops heat, stain and water-resistant. If your countertops do have a chip or slight crack, they can be filled in to make your countertops look like new!

These durable and log-lasting countertops make the perfect addition to not only your indoor spaces but can create the outdoor living space that you dream of. The addition of an outdoor kitchen space can ad value to your home, and concrete is a great way to transform your space without breaking your budget or creating worry that your countertops can chip, stain, or crack. Let our expertise design an outdoor kitchen that will stand the test of time.

EASY CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

Cleaning your countertops is easy! Concrete countertops don’t require anything special; a regular gentle commercial cleaning product or soap and water is all you need to clean these countertops.

Maintenance is also just as easy. Concrete countertops need to be sealed every 1-2 years to maintain heat, stain, and water-resistance.  Sealing will also help reduce the chances of cracking and chipping.
