Concrete countertops are becoming more and more popular in the kitchen. And, surprisingly, they are equally at home in a traditional kitchen as they are in a contemporary kitchen. The concrete surface is very smooth and cool to the touch, and available in dozens of standard colors. The color is generally added to the concrete mix before drying which gives the countertop the same color throughout. With integral color, scratches and mars (we know it happens eventually!) are fairly well disguised. Using a cutting board would save your countertop and most definitely your knives. Cutting boards can be inset into the actual concrete countertop if you let the manufacturer know ahead of time the exact location and dimensions.
A concrete countertop is not naturally stain resistant and needs to be sealed correctly - just as a granite countertop does. Once sealed, it is as stain resistant as most other surfaces, however, you will need to reseal it at least once a year and for maximum gloss, to wax every four to five weeks. Also, keep in mind that acidic foods and liquids, such as orange juice, may stain the surface if left sitting for very long.
Since concrete is extremely heavy, you may need to add additional support of the floor underneath the countertop to support the additional weight. Your contractor or architect should check this out before ordering the counter. All in all, a concrete countertop will give you years of elegant and durable service.
