For kitchen countertops, most materials that come to mind are granite, marble, or tile. If you contemplate any other type of surface material (formica, laminate, etc), they, too, mostly look like granite, marble, or tile. If you're tired of seeing the same look in every kitchen, then concrete is right for you.

Concrete Offers Limitless Customization for Your Kitchen Island

In addition to its natural virtues such as durability and ease of maintenance, concrete also has the ability to be shaped and colored in nearly any design. "Unlike other hard surfaces, concrete is not limited to square or diamond patterns and not limited in colors," says Jim Peterson, president of ConcreteNetwork.com. "You are limited in what you can do with granite; not with concrete."

Using concrete for your island top allows you to design with different shapes, to create long seamless runs, to vary thickness, and to use a multitude of colors. Customization can be as extreme as needed to meet your preferences. However, you can also have less customization and get a cost-effective, one-of-a-kind look.
