If you are really going for a streamline look with your countertop, consider actually molding your sink into the concrete countertop. This will mean you have one fluid piece that accounts for the counters and the sink with no seams. There are even more sink shapes available with concrete than there are with other materials. Again, if you can dream it and build the mold, you can make it with concrete.
Marble does have some distinct drawbacks as a countertop material. For starters, marble is a much softer stone than granite, so it has a greater tendency to scratch and mar than granite countertops. Additionally, polished marble is vulnerable to etching when acidic liquids are invariably spilled on it. These spots and marks can destroy the finish of your countertop; you can avoid this issue by choosing a honed finish in place of a polished finish, but most homeowners prefer the appearance of polished marble. Finally, marble is a porous, absorbent stone, meaning it tends to stain. While some homeowners like the patina their marble countertops develop over the years, many do consider it a drawback.
Not only do granite countertops make your kitchen look terrific, they have some other uses that can come in pretty handy too. For one thing, they are going to add to the value of your home, which is going to be quite helpful when the time comes that you decide you want to sell and move on. Another great thing about these countertops is that they can be used as cutting boards, and you are not going to be damaging the beautiful surface with your knives while you are cutting and preparing food. You don’t need to worry about burning them with hot pots and pans, and it is fine to go ahead and set them right on the heat resistant countertop. Yet another bonus is that once your countertops are sealed, they are anti-bacterial. The surface will not hold bacteria, so that it cannot grow, and this makes granite countertops a healthy thing to have in your kitchen.
