Really is there a better choice for a crazy/messy/clumsy cook like me? Granite seems to be high maintenance with all its sealing and special cleaning requirements. Quartz is a hardworking material, but it’s become more expensive than granite. Pretty much anything that has to be installed by professionals is out, we just don’t want to put up that much money right now. But I’m so tired of our laminate counters.
I first read about people pouring their own concrete counters last year, but I never thought much of it. It just seemed like too big of a job, and one that I could potentially really screw up. But now I’m more willing to consider it. There are sources for step-by-step instructions, the materials are readily available (they are now making products for the home DIYer), and it seems straightforward.
Plus, it’s gorgeous.
For a few hundred dollars worth of materials, you can have a solid surface, durable countertop.
And bonus: I can get an undermount sink. Although I’d really love a classic apron front.
I’m loving this darker shade.
So I think I’m going to get a game plan together and give this a go. Have any of you done this? Would you attempt it?
