Concrete Countertops & Flooring
While concrete has been used outside, in all manner of outside projects, for years now, concrete is finally being utilized for indoor projects as well. Concrete is an amazing substance because it can be poured in place or pre-fabricated. Concrete can also be dyed to any color you want or stamped with textures to really make it unique to you and your home. In addition to this, concrete is incredibly durable and holds up well enough that, with regular cleaning, it is relatively maintenance free.
Concrete floors have been used in both businesses and residential spaces for the last few decades. Because concrete is durable and naturally beautiful, it makes an amazing material to make floors out of. Concrete is also much easier to lay than wood because it’s a liquid. Concrete can be simply poured and leveled and left to set. Then, depending on your specific tastes, the concrete can either be dyed, stamped or engraved to give it a unique look. Lastly, the concrete is sealed to ensure a long life. Concrete floors are both beautiful and functional and cost effective.
Benefits of Concrete Floors
The benefits of concrete floors are numerous. While other flooring material, such as wood and tile, do an excellent job at warming up a space and dealing with foot traffic, they are nowhere near as sturdy as concrete is. Concrete is relatively maintenance free and very easy to clean. It resists scratching and scuffing and can hold under immense traffic for far longer than wood and tile. And, because concrete is a malleable substance when it is being poured, it can be customized to fit any space. On top of all of this, concrete is far more cost effective than other materials, which makes it a great flooring choice for bigger spaces.
Concrete countertops are a newer trend that is really taking off. Countertops, depending on material, can be incredibly expensive. And, if you don’t have the money to spend on expensive material, countertops can look cheap and, worse, will not hold up well. For this reason, concrete countertops have become an amazing replacement for natural stone countertops. Concrete countertops can either be poured in place or pre-fabricated off site and carried in to place which makes install incredibly easy. If you are in the need for new countertops, you should consider concrete.
Benefits of Concrete Countertops
Concrete countertops offer very similar benefits to concrete floors. Concrete countertops can be poured in place, which makes install one of the easiest things to do. Concrete countertops can also be pre-fabricated, off site, and installed like traditional counters. On top of this, concrete counters can be sealed, which only adds to their durability. Concrete counters can last for years on end if taken care of and, should they need to be patched or replaced, this is relatively cheap. Concrete counters can also be dyes or stamped or stained to look however you would like them to fit your specific space.
