Concrete countertops are becoming more and more popular as people seek out unique surfaces for their countertops. Granite is so nuts right now I think that it will be the most replaced item in about 8-10 years mainly because everybody seems to have them. Concrete counter tops on the other hand are individual, unique pieces that are designed for you and only you. Your neighbor, even if they want what you have, can’t have the exact same thing. There are many things that can be integraded into the concrete like colors, broken glass, coins, ect.
So how much do they cost. Generally you’ll find they will range around the $100/square foot price. I remind people not to get caught up in a square foot price when it comes to counter tops, mainly because it doesn’t matter. For example my counter top is 35 square feet. This would make the concrete counter top to be around $3500. Most granite is running around $60 / sq. foot(most co.’s then stick you with an install price for additional money of course). So granite would be $2100. Big deal… a little bit more money for something unique that everybody in johnson county DOESN”T have . Go with a custom built concrete counter top built just for you.
