There are a variety of techniques used to achieve a certain color in a concrete countertop. One of the most basic methods is adding a pigment into the concrete mix before the countertop is poured. These colors are often called integral colors or integrated colors. Integral colors add color throughout the countertop, making the center of the countertop the same color as the surface. This is especially important if any grinding or polishing is to occur after the pour. Post-pour colors will grind off, exposing the original color of the concrete. Some post-pour concrete coloring techniques include stained concrete countertops, tinted concrete countertops, and dyed concrete countertops. Each coloring method will result in a uniquely different result. Generally, the same rules apply for concrete countertop pre- and post-pour coloring techniques as they do for regular concrete slabs. Make sure to check rules and tips for each of these techniques before attempting. For example, you will likely want to wait until the concrete countertop is completely cured before applying any stain, which may take up to 60 days for interior applications.
There are all kinds of different styles of granite countertops you can choose from, and, just like with color and texture, you can always have your countertops custom designed to match your décor. Don’t forget about corners too, and you can choose from beveled, rounded, bullnosed or other styles of edges.
And even if these kinds of countertops may be costlier than the ordinary ones, the cost is nothing if compared to its toughness and its longevity of service. Consider your countertops as very specialized which also means that the color choices can be endless. And depending on the supplier that you seek in the market, the countertops may come in different colors and in different shades. And the nice thing is that the materials used for countertops can copy the looks of the other expensive materials since you can also be given the chance to include other materials like stones and marbles for that customized look.
