More Clever Ideas For Concrete Countertops
21. Sleek Black
Black is an overpowering color, but it sure knows how to make a statement in a cool way. Some kitchens and bathrooms can look majestic when you add just a little bit of black. If you don’t want a black countertop, then make everything else black and keep your countertop white. It’s classic yet modern at the same time!
22. The L Shape
Want to build a new kitchen island, but bored the traditional rectangle? L-shaped islands are a totally modern trend that can help you make the most out of your kitchen space! Plus, it’s easy for manufacturers of concrete countertops to cut slabs into custom shapes and dimensions that will fit perfectly in your home.
23. The Floating Counter
Keep things contemporary by installing floating counters and appliances. This can be a great new look for your bathroom, with a wall-mounted toilet, standalone tub, and floating concrete countertop to complete a futuristic style.
24. Triangle Island
Aside from the L-shape, the triangle is also a popular non-linear shape for your new kitchen island. It’s time to play around with different geometric shapes to achieve a fresh new look that totally redefines the way you use your kitchen. Your countertop can be completed with rounded corners or unfinished edges for a lived-in look.
25. Save it for the Guest Bathroom
Looking to take things slow with your first remodeling project? Instead of tackling the kitchen, you can start with something small, like your guest bathroom. A solid concrete countertop with plain colors can make the space warm and inviting. Plus, this is a great space to experiment if you are still trying to figure out the best style for your kitchen.
26. The Thicker the Better
Another one of the pros of concrete countertops is that you can install significantly thicker slabs than you could with other materials. In fact, you can have a slab several inches in depth, even up to one foot, for a purely solid countertop that is sure to make an impact on the style of your home.
27. Waterfall Edging
A rising trend in the world of modern countertops is the waterfall style, in which one of the edges carries down all the way to the floor. This creates a geometric unity between the countertop and the rest of the room, and makes for an awesome look all around.
28. Contemporary Slate
Slate is a deep and bold color that is simultaneously relaxed, making it good for almost any mood. If you’re going for a more modern and contemporary style, slate is a great option not just for your concrete countertops but for your flooring as well. It’s a color that mimics natural stone, too!
29. Perfectly Chiseled
Not all countertop edges need to be perfectly smooth or rounded. The chiseled edge is a wildly modern concept that is topping the charts when it comes to remodeling projects, especially in kitchens. This wavy and unfinished-looking edge gives a natural stone texture, making your kitchen feel more earthly without losing its contemporary touch.
30. Something New, Something Blue
Keep the natural coloring to the floors and cabinets. With your new concrete countertops, you should have all the freedom in the world to be creative. A milky or grayish blue can make a statement while still inviting you into the kitchen with its unique colors that are sure to put you in a good mood.
31. Integrate Your Sink!
It’s one thing to have a countertop cut out with enough room for your sink bowl – but what if the countertop was part of the sink bowl? The integrated sink is at the height of modern style, keeping in line with the tradition of minimalism by cutting out the need for additional materials. Just build the drain system within the cutout itself, and you have a wonderfully implemented hidden sink that won’t keep you from enjoying your new concrete countertops.
