Anyone who has ever cooked knows the importance of a quality kitchen. There are a few different elements to one space, appliances, cabinets but the most important aspect of any good kitchen is its countertops. Without high quality countertops that resist heat, stain, and other such common cooking threats, a kitchen just is not complete.

Concrete countertops are fast becoming the preferred material for kitchen countertops as many homeowners choose the material over traditional granite. Granite has been shown to occasionally emit harmful gases and substances that can potentially lead to lifelong complications. Despite these concerns, it is largely safe and still widely used. However, granite countertops are being rejected more and more for concrete countertops.

Concrete countertops not only look good, but they are also highly functional. They resist abrasion, staining, and high heat, among many other such dangers. They are also less expensive than pricey granite, which makes it an extremely attractive choice for homeowners. However, a concrete countertop is only as good as the concrete sealer used to protect it.
