Countertops...Let's Do Concrete

Are you planning to update your kitchen or bath? Or are you in the middle of a full rehab project? When it comes to choosing your countertop material you probably think of granite as the first option, right? After all it's what you see in every new condo or home. It's what you want, right? Because that's what everyone else has? Come on...think a little differently. If you've done your research you'll know there are quite a few good options for countertops--soapstone, silestone, corian, tile. They all have their pros and cons and various price tags. But have you thought about concrete countertops? You've probably heard of them but most likely not seen them here in Chicago. Concrete can be pigmented almost any color you want. It can be custom shaped and inlayed. You can add decorative aggregates to the finish. When designing concrete countertops there is room for a lot of creativity--or you can go with a simple sleek look. If you want to make your kitchen or bath stand out from 95% of the other new places, pigmented concrete countertops are a great option. Feel free to email or call if you have any questions or want to discuss a current project.
