Yet another fantastic application of concrete is on countertops. Concrete is just as tough as granite, and it is far more customizable in its appearance. Just as polishing and staining can provide a beautiful concrete floor, so can they make for a lovely concrete countertop. Concrete’s famous for its durability and heat resistance, making it an ideal countertop material. When paired with a high-quality seal and proper after-care, a concrete countertop will look beautiful and retain its function for a long lifespan.
