By far the biggest advantage of concrete counters is their versatility. From simple and elegant countertops, to countertops that include water features like operating streams through the kitchen, to hugely great monolithic concrete islands. Probably the most crucial area of your concrete countertop is that it is sealed very well from the beginning. Concrete is obviously porous, for this reason you will need a sealer to keep the pores. Basic water and soap or a non - abrasive cleanser is the best option. Overlays are another canvas for exhibiting creative talent. I highly recommend this. One could coordinate a completely unique design concept for an assortment of surfaces.
