Concrete countertops are becoming more and more popular in the home improvement industry. And with good reason: concrete material is highly functional, attractive, versatile and completely customizable. All pluses in the kitchen, for sure, but many homeowners are also now discovering the benefits of concrete countertops when it comes to bathroom remodeling, too.
Why Use Concrete Countertops for Your Bathroom?
- Versatility – Concrete is a tremendously versatile material that lends itself especially well to the bathroom environment. The countertop is precast in molds so that it fits to the customer’s exact requirements and specifications, making it perfectly seamless and truly one-of-a-kind.
- Flying colors and finishes – Custom concrete countertops enhance any bathroom remodeling project to a tee; they can be made to order in a huge array of colors, combining flawlessly with all other bathroom design features and fixtures. When professionally polished, these countertops provide a gorgeously smooth surface that becomes not only practical, but a real visual focal point.
- Definite durability – Plain and simple, concrete countertops are surprisingly durable. They are resistant to scratches and heat, and are considered more environmentally-friendly than many other building materials, such as laminates and quarried granite or marble. Custom cast and beautifully uniform surfaces eliminate the hassles of maintaining grout between countertop tiles and backsplashes.
Good Contractors Take Proper Precautions
When embarking on a bathroom remodeling project, it is always paramount to hire a skilled and reputable company, especially one that has experience with concrete countertops. They will ensure that your counters are properly planned for, finished and sealed for maximum resilience and resistance to water damage, stains and regular wear and tear.
To ensure that your bathroom countertop remains as long-lasting and durable as possible, simple regular waxing or sealing should be done periodically. No matter what design, color and overall look you opt for, your bathroom remodeling company will provide the very best advice on all recommended concrete countertop care.
It’s certainly understandable why Better Homes and Gardens says, “If you’re the type who revels in having the latest and greatest, then a concrete countertop is definitely your style.”
