I was introduced to this idea yesterday. I've been wanting granite countertops in my new kitchen, but at $50 a square foot, it's not really in our price range at the moment. Enter Mirjam: While our daughters had a play date, we got to talking about this very subject and she told me about these concrete countertops she had seen on a home show. When I first heard the words "concrete countertop," I thought of a grey sidewalk, but no--these countertops can be stained any color, and can have a glossy finish. In the picture galleries, a lot of the countertops could easily have been mistaken for granite. Another tidbit is that you can inlay little treasures into the concrete (i.e. shells, pieces of glass or what ever). We just might do this!
