Concrete countertops offer versatility in design and can be customized to suit various styles and preferences. Here are some concrete countertop ideas to consider.
Concrete countertops can be colored in various hues, ranging from neutral tones like gray, beige, or white to bolder colors like blue, green, or black. Integrating pigments or stains into the concrete mix allows for a wide spectrum of color options.
Bar Avant restaurant in the Olly Olly Market in the Starlett Lehigh Building in Chelsea, New York City places pink concrete countertops at the center of their design.
Experiment with different textures like smooth, polished surfaces or more tactile finishes such as a matte or semi-glossy surface. Techniques like acid etching, sandblasting, or adding aggregates (like glass chips, shells, or stones) can create unique textures.
Concrete countertops can have various edge profiles, such as straight, bullnose, beveled, or customized designs. The edge detailing can significantly impact the overall aesthetic.
You can embed various elements within the concrete, such as decorative stones, tiles, metal accents, or even personal items like coins, shells, or mementos, to add character and uniqueness.
At Pinhoti Peak, a house in the Appalachian mountains imagined by Chip Wade, the family wanted to incorporate a personal element that helped them remember where the project began. On a family outing, they kept seeing trail markers for the Pinhoti trail. Pinhoti is a Creek Indian word meaning “turkey habitat". Trueform added three feathers to their concrete dining table to bring the project full circle.
Inlays and Patterns
Create intricate designs or patterns by using inlays or templates. For instance, geometric patterns, logos, or artistic designs can be embedded or carved onto the surface.

Integral Sinks, Drainboards, and More
Incorporating sinks or drainboards directly into the concrete countertop design creates a seamless and visually appealing look. It also provides functionality and ease of maintenance. Any functional feature you want to include can be done with your custom concrete countertops.
Customized Shapes and Sizes
Concrete countertops can be customized to fit unique shapes and sizes, including curved or irregular designs, allowing for creativity and personalization.
Integration with Other Materials
Combine concrete with other materials like wood, metal, or glass to create contrast and visual interest. For instance, incorporating wooden inserts or metal accents can add a touch of warmth or industrial style to the concrete surface.
